It has been said that most depression is "anger turned inwards or a feeling of loss of control in one's life". Psychotherapy can help you process some of their painful past and regain control of your life. Where there is depression there is also anxiety/fear. We can take a look at some of the contributing factors to the anxiety. Sometimes your interpretation of the past has negative results to your present day life. Therapy looks at at what those interpretations are and correct them where they need correction. Using Family Systems Therapy, CBT and Emotion-Focused Therapy you will see what they think, feel and believe.

If you suffer from anxiety or depression, you can make changes to your life that will free you from the weight of negative thinking, crippling tiredness and lack of motivation and energy. The first step to good emotional health is an understanding of your specific issues and stresses. The second step is to work with your therapist to develop coping skills that can raise your hope and your outlook on life. Hard work and good therapy can give you the power to change your world. Make the first step and call.

One of the most frequent reasons one will see a counsellor/therapist is for depression treatment. Therapy for depression works in many ways through emotional support, problem solving, examining and changing thinking styles (particularly lowering the amount of negative rumination), checking needs are met, looking at behaviour, and helping improve relationship skills. I will help you think about your problems in new and more empowering ways. I will help you to identify and draw on your own resources. Together we will work towards increasing your self confidence and independence.

Depression is different from simply feeling down or blue. Depression is a mood disorder that affects you in different ways, and may include feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, guilt, and/or worthlessness. Other common symptoms include a lack of energy, difficulty focusing, a change in eating or sleeping, and a loss of interest in sex or other pleasurable activities. Severe depression can also lead to thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is very effective in helping people overcome depression through changing ways of thinking and relating to the world. I help clients understand the depression and incorporate ways of managing and changing their feelings.

The role of therapy in treating clinical depression is to help the person develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. Many studies support the idea that therapy can be a powerful treatment for depression. A review published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, for example, concluded that therapy combined with antidepressants worked better than depression medicine alone. Although there are fewer studies of therapy for treatment-resistant depression specifically, many experts still recommend it. One 2007 study found that for people who didn't respond to a specific drug treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy worked as well in reducing symptoms.

Depression is nothing to be afraid of, or ashamed of. Every individual has experienced depression, or sadness, at least once in their lives. Often just talking about depressed feelings can be a huge relief, and sometimes just bringing the "darkness" into the light through talk therapy can bring a lighter feeling to the felt darkness. In counselling therapy we will talk about what is being felt, the uncomfortable and unpleasant feelings, and look for strategies to lighten these feelings.

People experience depression for many reasons. Sometimes it feels like we've lived with depression forever, sometimes a cluster of circumstances or event(s) knock us over emotionally and it feels hard to move forward in a positive, hopeful way. I work with clients to identify symptoms of depression they may be experiencing, as well as the underlying factors contributing to the distress. We work from many angles to maximize your support resources and shift in a healing and hopeful direction. * Please note: My services are NOT designed for those feeling suicidal or those in immediate crisis. In situations of acute distress please contact your physician or go to your nearest emergency room.

In therapy for depression, my clients usually learn strategies and techniques to strengthen their coping abilities, to rebuild their strength and to regain control over their lives. Clients learn how to deal with negative thoughts, how to reframe from negative thoughts using certain behavioral strategies. Clients are taught how to identify symptoms of depression and how to prevent its recurrence.

Depression can be devestating for the person who experiences it, however, when looked at through a slightly different lense it can also be an opportunity to make the changes your body, mind, emotions, and spirit are demanding of you. I have supported many clients to recover from depression and live their lives with a renewed sense of meaning and hope.

Feelings of low mood and depression can take a toll on us emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Counselling support can alleviate these challenging symptoms by exploring the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that cause us to feel "stuck." Often times, changing one of these elements will have an effect on another; Counselling serves to facilitate the exploration of this process in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental space.

I teach clients with mild to moderate depression symptoms that depression can often be a messenger from our deepest self and/or a call to action. I actually suggest specific actions that they can take to break out of the depression--inaction cycles. I suggest that they do an "inner dialogue" with the depression and ask it what is the cause of the depression. I suggest that if they cannot get at the "root cause" of the depression that they at least attempt to get to the region of their psyche that the depression is coming from. I suggest hypnosis to them. Research has shown a marked reduction in depression with the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system with hypnosis.
