Depression is a mood disorder that can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest that can interfere with daily functioning. Reaching out for help is a step towards wellness. Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but it is a very treatable condition. Therapy for depression helps you overcome the feelings of hopelessness and despair and to gain control of your life.

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.

Unlike many conventional therapies, I do not view depression as a 'thought disorder' that can simply be addressed by saturating our minds with 'positive thinking'. I help clients address the root cause of suffering through mindfulness and counselling that explores the unconscious levels of self. By shining the light of awareness on the "85% of the iceberg" hidden from our day-to-day mind, we can reorient ourselves towards health and freedom.

Learning to talk about your symptoms of depression can open doors to a deeper and more compassionate relationship with yourself. Managing and understanding what lies beneath your symptoms of depression can help you open the doors to feelings that you didn't realize you were holding onto... feelings that need a voice, and that are screaming for your attention but can't be heard under the weight of your depression. I can help you safely explore your emotions, implement the changes you can, and learn to have a stronger relationship with yourself.

Depression leads to disconnection: disconnection from the closest people who love you, from your environment, from your own feelings and emotions and ultimately from being engaged in life. Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness are the earmarks for depression. I have a very high rate of success working with people with depression. My approach is eclectic.

Many people who suffer with depression find it difficult to begin a counselling relationship. Most of their energy is spent by just getting through their day. There is good evidence that both a pharmaceutical and therapeutic approach in treatment has positive results. The good news is that once counselling starts, clients often find that it becomes easier. I work with each client individually using CBT, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy may be used. It is also important to see your doctor if you are experiencing depression. Each client needs to know that there is help available. A client that comes to see me will find a caring and compassionate space to be yourself.

There are a number of issues that may present in depression, including loss, grief, trauma, and/or any experiences or learning that may impact the sense of self. Depression can be helped by direct cognitive approaches, challenging and guiding past the tendencies to judge self; by behavioural approaches that guide or help back to meaningful activity; by exploratory approaches that help look at events or learning that may have led to the current view of world, self, or future; and/or by approaches that simply support or help by instilling hope, infusing a sense that change can occur (in fact, does naturally occur), and that current distress will not last indefinitely.

Depression can be debilitating for an individual to live with as it takes over their life and is not something they asked to have and are confused with why they can't get out of the rut. As a therapist, I know it is important to start where the client is at as well as recognize when implementing strategies of change is important. My approach is to offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy where you will learn coping skills and in a safe environment be exposed to situations that will increase your self awareness to the point you are able to manage the emotions.

This title can fit many conditions that interfere with our normal energy system , including numerous medical/physical ones, hence thorough assessment is required. Much overused, often unhelpful or anti-helpful, in my experience every “depression” is unique to the individual and made of a complex of factors and aspects that need careful sorting out. A pervasively under-felt stress reaction, it has many mental components, conscious and not, and often immediate environmental/behavioral ones. Usually just the process of therapeutic exploration brings some relief over ‘baseline’: empowerment in specific areas of living is the main direction. "Oppression" seems a more fruitful concept to apply.

Depression often comes as a result of not feeling entitled to claim our life and set boundaries to create safety in our life. Instead of feelings like we can grow and become more of who we are, we get caught in the reverse, where we feel more and more that we should shrink and lose our aliveness. We work with you in a process of recognizing your feelings and getting them to work for you rather than against you. Depression is about dis-empowerment, but we become empowered when we can make sense of our inner world and use our feelings to strengthen ourselves and make the changes we need to make in our life. No need to go it alone, let us guide you through this challenging terrain!

Life events can cause fluctuations in our happiness levels, but sometimes we can get to feeling overwhelmed by life events or just life itself. Therapy can provide the support you need to sort out the origin of the depression and to make steps to finding a sense of balance and wholeness again. As a therapist, I am able to support you in this journey in order to enjoy life again.

There are many reasons why people feel depressed. Through counselling, I can help you to identify and address the causes (if not medical) of your depression. Once you understand the reasons for your symptoms and successfully address the causes, you will find freedom and hope. You will not only feel better emotionally, but you will find that your energy and zest for life will increase and enable you to function better, achieve tasks, and accomplish goals that you have given up on. By practicing concepts learned through counselling, you can have your life back.

Depression is often our body/minds’ way of saying “slow down and look at things that may be negatively affecting your life.” An unfortunate side effect of this coping strategy is that it can prevent us from having the motivation or clarity to work on things that might be helpful. The work we do together will examine past and present barriers to living a more fulfilling life. This could include processing past traumas, rethinking unhelpful behaviour patterns or coping strategies. As depression subsides you may notice an increase in motivation, a desire to connect more with others, and positive mood.

Depression can feel like a 'loss of soul'. I work with people struggling with depression or those wondering why they feel 'grey'. Burnout and vicarious trauma can also cause symptoms of depression. I use integrative psychotherapy that combines a meaning-centred approach with basic cognitive behavioural techniques and mindfulness based meditation practices. We explore the best approach for you to develop a robust set of resources for being compassionate towards yourself, mindful of triggers and slippery slopes, and a strengths based focus towards living every day with a sense of ground under your feet and feeling of hope for tomorrow.
