Depression can be mild to severe, utilization of a strong psycho-educational approach and a shared care model to support those struggling with depression can be a beneficial care approach. Focus is also on interventions based primarily on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy interventions focused on awareness of thinking habits, activation and lifestyle supports to promote mood health.

Major Depression is a mental health problem that afflicts many people. Its painful effects can impair the ability to function normally and live a happy, productive life. My approach to counselling depression is based on Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioural therapies. This combined approach can help clients learn how to identify, dispute, and replace negative thoughts and beliefs about self, others, the world, and God, which often maintain their depression. Homework assignments are completed between sessions to assist clients to practice skills learned in therapy as part of the treatment.

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. I will 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 me guide you through this challenging terrain!

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.

Children can present with depressive symptoms but may not have been diagnosed with clinical depression. Symptoms can look like; changes in appetite or sleep patterns, social isolation, lack of interest/happiness in things the child normally enjoyed, decreased self-confidence, or increased sadness or crying. It is important to explore what may be causing these emotional shifts, for example if it is a normal response/reaction of sadness or something that should be examined by a medical professional. Exploration can be done in consultation or counselling with the child or parent to determine how to manage these symptoms and practice releasing and processing these feelings.

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.
