Are you having trouble sleeping and eating? Do you find it difficult to get out of bed in the morning? Perhaps you find yourself crying frequently? And maybe you find that you lack energy and motivation. Depression can creep into our lives without us knowing, and without an understanding of what it is we are experiencing. As a counsellor I work a lot with clients who come to me to talk about depression. When I meet with you I will ask you questions about how you are coping with your situation, and if I think you might be depressed, I will talk with you about it. Depression can be treated successfully and I want you to know that I can use many strategies to help you overcome your depression.

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!

When depression sets in, it can feel all-consuming and overwhelming. Will it ever go away? Will I ever again have a good night's rest? Why don't I feel better when I spend time with friends? Will I ever get my zest for life/appetite/motivation back? I provide a safe space in which you can talk through your feelings. Together we can work towards an understanding of the root causes of your depression, and explore ways in which you can more effectively cope in difficult times. Understanding why we feel depressed and talking about our experience of depression, in the context of a caring and empathic relationship, can be an important and significant step on the road to recovery.

Depression comes in many forms. At its most severe, it can cripple us, zap our energy, and make it impossible to get out of bed. But more often, it can feel like sadness, loneliness, indifference, or boredom. Sometimes it comes from current circumstances. Usually it has much deeper roots. I can help you devise strategies to climb out of the abyss and to find more effective ways to stay out of it. I will help you get to the bottom of your depression, and clear it out for good.

In many cases, depression is not a disease but a reaction to your life’s circumstances. In fact, depression seems to be a symptom rather than the problem itself. Even when depression is diagnosed medically, how do you cope with your life, and the many faces of depression. Just feeling better can be a good temporary solution but rebuilding your life is the ultimate goal. I approach depression as a "Healing Response of our Mind". A natural state caused by circumstances and their root causes. Once the root causes have been dealt with, your mind returns to its normal self. This approach is very successful and is designed to work in conjunction with medication - or as a stand-alone method.

Depression is the most common mental-health disturbance worldwide and falls within a wide continuum of severity. There is an equally broad range of causes, including grief and loss and absense of a supportive community. Some believe it is biological. Whatever the cause, some individuals feel depression more acutely and more frequently than others. Current research recognizes the benefits of psychotherapy on positive treatment outcomes. My approach is to recognize the life experiences that have contributed to depression and to help address directly the feelings underneath. To find relief and hope is sometimes a matter of learning to dig deeper into feelings with help from a psychotherapist.

In a safe atmosphere we will examine and discuss historical early and current triggers, and work to resolve their effects on your mood and situation. We dismantle self-defeating ingrained beliefs that prevent inspired living, fulfillment and action. Depression can adversely effect one’s relationships with others including partners, friends, and family, making them feel pushed away. Conversely, depression can be triggered by relationships. In these depressions, we'll focus on relationships and improving them, regardless of the issues. The outcome is often experienced as a clarity of mind, a sense of liberation, confidence, love, better relationsihips, productivity, and overall happiness.

Depression is typically an outcome of a current or past life event, or both. It might be due to grief or a recent disappointment. Depending on what we explore together to be the cause, we will work with action plans and strategies to set your life area in the direction that you want to improve. Further, if there are issues from your past, which is frequently the case, we will identify these upsets, identify schemas that you have formulated that impact how you think, feel, and behave, and we will work to improve your mood. Further, we may work through various worksheets and processes to understand what your thoughts and behaviors are and how these are helping or hurting your mood.

I practice Person-centered counselling which respects individual uniqueness and steers clear of any form of advice, preferring to support you in finding your own meanings and solutions. Especially useful when your main need is for caring, non-judgemental support and a neutral space where you can get things off your chest. I also practice Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), which is solution and action-focused, especially helpful in tackling unhelpful thinking habits. Has strong evidence for effectiveness in treating both depression and anxiety.

It is formless and it is without colours or boundaries: it is depression. Depression creeps into our lives:sometimes quickly or sometimes it grows over a period of weeks or months. In it, we feel ourselves slipping ever deeper and further away from the things that had mattered in our lives.Perhaps we know that talking to someone might help, but, finding the way to that person seems impossible.Communicating will help.Together,you will share whatever or wherever you find yourself: I will hear you and stay present with you in that place. When you are ready, we will look at what is happening for you.The darkness and weight will start to lighten and greater understanding will come with that light

Yuck. Depression is one of those challenges that feeds itself. The more depressed you become the less you want to do what you have to get better. And hey, you might well have darn good reason to be depressed. I get that. I personally beat depression years ago. But take a moment and remember what a good day, or even good moment felt like? We have all had them, and we can have them again. Using an integrated form of coaching and psychotherapy I can help you build skills and experiences that push depression out of your life, and fills it with happiness and gratitude. There's a science to all this - and its not just the psychology, it is the science of neuroplasticity.

The darkness that is depression is not something a lot of people want to talk about. Depression can be debilitating, and it can be extremely lonely. When we feel depressed, we often keep ourselves isolated. It's often difficult to be with others when we are depressed. My experience is that people want to cheer you up, or "fix" you. Where can you explore these dark feelings then, if no one can handle them? I will go to the dark place with you. We can explore together how bad it gets, and we can also look at where you still have hope, and find ways to nurture it.

Clients who are experiencing depression can benefit greatly from having someone to talk to about their experience. Just the act of sharing and having someone nonjudgmental listen to the inherent obstacles one is facing can begin to lift the veil of difficulty. Therapy for depression can help people get back to work, have more positive relationships, and help enable change at the moment when people need it most. Examining depression is also an extremely fertile experience to understand more profoundly what ones values are and how to begin to strengthen oneself in order to face further challenges in life.

I am specialized in working with emotion regulation difficulties, such as depression. My counselling approach is informed by Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which explore one’s relationship with their thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and physical sensations in order to promote greater self-awareness, regulation of difficult moods, and present-moment mindedness. MBCT was designed to help clients cultivate skills to notice warning signs leading to depression relapse in order to prevent further episodes. Both MBCT and CBT have received extensive research support for their effectiveness in treating depression.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.
