I define Depression as having an "Emotional Fever." If you're running an emotional fever and find it difficult to recover. Hire me as your counselor/coach and I will help you: 1) understand the reasons of your depression, 2) learn to read your emotional thermometer, 3) track your emotional fever, 4) establish a nurse-patient self-care relationship, and 5) build a strong support system. As a bonus, I will include a thermometer (at no cost). You will be able to take your or someone's emotional temperature quickly and easily. I have helped 1000's of people (young & old) recover from short and long term depression. Give me a try. I can help.....

Depression is a common response to stressful life events, whether prolonged or acute. I help clients determine the possible causes, healthy copying strategies, support systems. Often my clients respond well to the offer of mindful presence and an empathic ear. I prefer to be a part of a larger team helping the client by encouraging them to speak with a spouse/partner, other family, doctor or religious community. I support responsibly the client's choice to pursue pharmaceutical treatment or not.

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Not living to one’s full potential is one of the tragedies of human existence. It can, however, be remedied. In the rapidly changing world that we find ourselves in, we have to make our own meaning in life and follow our own sense of direction. If we want to experience being fully alive, we cannot simply accept a life that other people or our culture want for us. We have to be the authors of our own destinies and walk our own paths.

Depression, that heavy fog that keeps us from joy and pleasure & makes life senseless. It usually stems from past wounds that have not healed. My approach uses a warm and judgement free relationship that enables the client to gain self acceptance & empowers them to change what is making them feel stuck. I would focus on using Mindfulness based-CBT to reconnect with the present in a new way. You may also include somatic treatment, a brain-body intervention that retrains the brain's relaxation response for immediate results.

Many years ago depression was called melancholia and was not considered so negatively as it is in our current "performance" focused culture. We are expected to be "up" continuously in today's busy life-styles, with work, children, relationships, and even in our playtime. The result of this sort of expectation can be debilitating and certainly can lead to long bouts of feeling out of control, unfulfilled, unmotivated and ultimately immobilized. Depression can certainly be dealt with through very effective therapeutic techniques. I work with clients to better understand the root cause of their sadness and help them to look at the possible meaning behind their depression and how to best cope.

Depression is not a sign of weakness! I can help you alleviate the guilt that accompanies depression. I am trained in evidence based strategies that are as effective as medication, but also better for relapse prevention. Being compassionate to the self and learning to adjust negative thought and behaviour patterns are key factors in overcoming depression. I will work with you to establish small manageable goals that will not overwhelm you. I will help you to improve relationships that typically play a major role in sustaining depressive symptoms. Simply taking the time to talk and process your thoughts will help you to feel better after only 1 session.

Do you know when you feel depressed? Do you recognize the painful inner emotions that you can physically feel in your body? The feeling of depression is one that anyone can experience from time to time. However, if you find yourself frequently down in mood, not interested in your daily tasks or people, feeling isolated, crawling back under the covers or pouring another drink to make the pain go away, you could benefit from some supportive and caring counselling. I will help you deal with the emotional pains and isolation you are experiencing by working together to create or restore the thoughts, feelings and spirit that is meaningful and important for you to have in your life.

In L3P 1Y7 - Nearby to Port Perry.

I'm a relational psychotherapist. So while I know that you feel bad inside, I also see that a lot of those bad feelings - worry, low self-esteem, fear of failing, depression - exist at the boundary or interface where you meet the world. They're relational feelings as well as self-feelings. They sound like: "Am I good enough? Have I made a mistake in their eyes? Do they like me? Am I in trouble?" When you feel that the answers to these questions are negative, then you feel badly about yourself, in yourself. Relational psychotherapy helps you understand your depression, yourself and how just being bad feelings is the first step towards moving past them.

Depression is a normal human behaviour which typically indicates the need to slow down and spend time on "refueling" yourself. Depression becomes clinical when ignored and the emotion begins to interfere with everyday functioning. In a nurturing and caring environment we begin the slow process of making that person buoyant. We set up small achievable goals decided on by the client. The goal is to teach them how to accept, listen to their emotion and take action long before clinical depression.

If you are looking to this page chances are you know that life is not as enjoyable as you would like it can be. One of the symptoms of depression is feeling unmotivated so congratulation on getting out of that trap and start looking for help. Depression may be a result of other underlying issues you may be carrying for a long time. Many times I noticed accumulated anger in patients which are not able to express it in a constructive way. When this anger is directed to themselves it can result in depression. Together we can identify what is triggering and perpetuating it and we can change the course out of what feels like an emotional trap. I will be me pleasure to witness your growth.

At New Roots Therapy, we aim to understand depression in a way that is not pathologizing or failing. Depression can have both internal and external roots; many times, depression is an active response to something that is out of balance in one's life. Regardless of its cause, we ultimately believe that a person is not their depression, but a person can be influenced by depression. By the same token, we believe that people have the ability to be active in influencing the impact of depression on their lives and we hope to explore this with the people we meet.

Counsellor & Life Coach

Available for Online Therapy

Mindfulness-based therapy and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) are the primary approaches I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing depression. For clients experiencing depression, it is important to realize that most feelings of depression are the result of, in some, reliving the pain from the past. If you are experiencing depression, your therapy will include learning to recognize the those mental and emotional places where you are 'stuck' in the pain from the past, and learn to release it. If you are on anti-depressants, therapy will also assist in managing your depression.
