My primary approach to the treatment of depression is to explore, in order to find the core issues or stressful events causing the present symptoms. Once the main contributory factors have been identified, I support my clients through a process of honestly and openly expressing their feelings and thoughts patterns. I am able to teach them effective coping skills in order to be able to function in the present, and possibly, resolve the symptoms of depression with time.

We all experience sadness from time to time. However, if you find you are feeling hopeless or stuck, a therapist can be beneficial. Often, depression strikes when you constantly ruminate about the past or worry about the future. You may have had painful experiences in your past or you may be suffering right now, leaving you feeling uneasy, tired and unmotivated. Sharing your problems and feelings with an impartial, empathetic therapist can help to lift the pain. Learning skills to keep you in the present will help you heal and give you hope to fulfil your life's passions.

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.

Depression has been described as if you have been dragging a massive weight behind you. Difficulty getting out of bed, finding pleasure in activities, finding or maintaining employment are many things with which depression may affect. Living with depression is possible, discovering ways to manage depressive symptoms take time and may require assistance. Therapy is one treatment that may help.

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.

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.

Depression can look very different, for different people. In fact, many people suffering from depression don't even realize they have it. So, whether you're chronically depressed or concerned about a mild, but generally low mood - there's lots that can be done to turn things around. I work using a blend of mindfulness-based therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy to address mood dysregulation and help feel better day-to-day.

Depression is not a sign of weakness! I can help you alleviate the guilt that accompanies depression.

Depression can rob one of energy, motivation, clarity, and the ability to make decisions. Often described as a dark cloud, depression can leave people in a bad place, feeling that they do not have much to contribute in life. Therapy has been found to be one of the most effective ways to improve functioning in those who have depression. By having someone truly listen, without distraction, talking about it can make things much better.

When coming to counselling for depression, I will help you come to a place of renewed hope, and a place of greater acceptance of yourself. I will listen to your experience with depression and together we will seek to identify the source of the low mood and what we can do to enhance the way you feel and think about yourself, others and society. Also, we will discover what coping strategies would be most effective for you in increasing your overall mood; and learning how to stabilize it over time.

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.

I encourage self-compassion and take a gentle approach that empowers the client and helps to renew a lost sense of hope.

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.
