Depression is one of the main reasons people initiate psychotherapy. A critical step for patients is understanding the origin of their depression. This may include past and/or current experiences. I work with my patients to help them change the way they react to internal and external stresses. Techniques may include cognitive-behavioural, relaxation, psychodynamic, hypnotherapy, and meditation. I help patients cope better with the physical and emotional symptoms of depression including sleep disruption, fatigue, weight loss and gain, decreased sex drive, and problems in personal relationships and at work. Treatment helps enhance self-esteem and improve life satisfaction.

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!

Sadness is a common emotion. However, when sadness lingers in our lives, is long term, and affects our day to day life, then it is something to be addressed. I help clients to take steps towards reducing depression through related actions. Alongside this, I work with clients to understand how the depression is controlling them and what strategies we might consider to reduce this control. For example, clients often find it helpful to engage with others, challenge their thinking, consider their past positive experiences, and consider changes to their environment to begin to feel more and more positive emotions and less depressed.

Depression is one of the areas of therapy that requires a great deal of patience and understanding. Trying to overcome depression or even depressive moments alone can be a difficult task. Through cognitive and behavioural therapy depression can be worked out and handled. Calm and compassionate counselling is at the heart of all treatment for 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.

Depression is painful--and a possible goal in treating this condition can be finding its cause. For some people, depression results from the way they treat themselves, like being very hard on themselves or harsh and critical in their self-talk. For others, depression comes about from feeling like they can't assert themselves or that they are somehow less valuable than other people. The Emotion-Focused approach can help us understand the dynamics beneath the depression so we can work to lift and resolve this painful condition.
