I have found the Cognitive/Behavioural model of therapy the most efficient one to use with clients suffering from long term depression. Acute depression responds well to Relational, Ego-State and Attachment based models of therapy. Most important however, is a warm, empathic, supportive environment in which to explore and resolve the client's needs and instil Hope.

In many cases, I view depression as an "alarm bell" that tells the individual that there is something wrong in their life. Have they turned their anger in life toward themselves? Are they not living their best, or preferred, life? Is there something that's happened in their life that is getting them down, but they don't realize how much power it truly has? Depression can also be about learned helplessness, or having a sense, through experience, that there is no point in even trying at something. Such helplessness can come from feeling defeated, feeling significant guilt about something, & even from self-defeating 'self-talk' that an individual engages in (without completely realizing it).

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.

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 can sometimes feel like a black whole. You may feel as though the energy you once had in life has been sucked out of you and left somewhere in the past. What sometimes happens in these cases is that a series of events have caused you to stop pursuing the things you use to be passionate about and are now stuck with just worries and regret. Therapy is all about working through these hard emotions and finding your way back to your passionate self.

Therapy can be a place where clients can explore the blocks they are experiencing to feeling ok. Sometimes such things as early childhood experiences, trauma [recent or historic], challenging work situations, feeling overwhelmed in life, and interpersonal and relationship struggles can contribute to feeling disempowered, hopeless, helpless, numb, exhausted, and disinterested in life. Being able to feel supported, to explore and come to understand what is happening, to explore the body's and the nervous system's role in how one is feeling, to speak freely can often help.

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.

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.

I believe that depression is one of the most common mental health issues and I always tell my clients how it is normal to experience emotions like heavy sadness. I will work with you to find the root causes of the depression. We will work to better understand your triggers and how those link to the types of thoughts you are getting. From there we can plan new responses to the thoughts that are the result of a collaborative effort to ensure the new responses will work for you specifically!

Depression is not a sign of weakness. There are many extremely accomplished, intelligent and capable people who have been depressed. Depression can rob people of energy, interest in life and will to get better. In therapy I address depression with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques, because it helps by fostering changes in the "thinking" and promotes "action".

When engulfed in the blackness of depression we loose site of the debilitating negative cloud casting despair over all aspects of our life. We come to see our lives solely through the depression lens rather than being able to construct an accurate map of our reality. With psychotherapy we can learn to once again access a more balanced vision of our living that better recognizes the goodness in our lives and provides direction to possibilities. Depending on the level of clinical depression, medication is often recommended temporarily in conjunction with psychotherapy to alleviate depression symptoms and help bring motivation for movement--the client can begin to help themselves

Approximately 50 percent of adults who have depressive symptoms also have symptoms of anxiety, such as fearfulness, persistent worry, heart palpitations, and insomnia. Research informs us that the most effective therapies for clinical depression are therapies that are ‘solution-focused’ and seek to teach skills and alleviate suffering; therefore, we use a combination of cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy to treat depression and anxiety.

Sadness and Depression are often challenges we may encounter in our lifetime. Feelings, thoughts and behaviors associated with them can at times overwhelm and even paralyze us with their power. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand these feelings, progress through their isolation with them, find a way through their tight hold and learn to live productively again.

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!

Sometimes, over the years, we accumulate painful experiences that leave our bodies and minds broken. These experiences can send us into darkness and into a deep solitude. Depression may be caused by different factors and can happen to anyone! The good news is that there are strategies to help us understand the causes of depression and to learn how to manage the symptoms of depression. I will help you explore the causes of your depressed mood, and to walk through ways that can help you to deal with it.

Depression can be a debilitating and hopeless place to be. It is often connected to difficult life experiences and sometimes genetically predisposed. I believe in a holistic form of treatment considering health and care of the body, soul and spirit. One should never walk alone through depression for all they see is 'darkness' - seek God, others and the help of therapy in order to show you the 'light'. I believe the 'light' represents truth, hope and renewed vision for life!

Depression has different impacts on different individuals. Because of this, treatment plans specific to depression are especially unique. When I work with clients with depression, I ensure that the root of the depressive mood is explored, the current aspects in the client's life that is maintaining the depression is targeted, and that client-specific interventions and strategies are put into place. Depression has various aspects to it and it is only in exploring each of these aspects that treatment can be thorough and effective.
