Major Depression is a mental health problem that afflicts many people. Its painful effects can impair a person’s ability to function normally and live a happy productive life. My approach to counselling individuals suffering with depression is based on the methods and techniques of Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioural therapies. This combined approach is useful in helping individuals to learn how to identify, dispute, and replace negative thoughts and beliefs about self, others, the world, and God that often underlie and maintain clinical depression. Between sessions clients use psycho-education handouts and homework sheets to help them practice strategies that (1) address negative thoughts and feelings that trigger mood swings and (2) develop a...(view profile to read more)

I use MBCT, which is a combination of mindfulness based stress reduction and cognitive therapy to help improve the symptoms of depression in individuals, such as stress, anxiety and negative thinking.

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

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.

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!
