180 Bloor St. W., Toronto, Ontario

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.

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

Sandra Lewis, MA

Psychotherapist, coach

126 Seaton Street, Toronto, Ontario

Depression responds amazingly well to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, according to all the studies. In fact CBT is THE most researched therapy, with a very high success rate... around 95%. If you would prefer not to take anti-depressants, CBT can work quite well to manage or eliminate your depression. If you are already on anti-depressants, CBT can still work to help you feel better. In addition, EFT is a powerful tool for the release of emotions in the moment. It works instantaneously to make you feel better. Together these are powerful tools to help you feel as happy as possible.

Christina Becker, MBA, Dip. Analy. Psych. (Zurich)

Jungian Analyst, Clinical Member, OSP

437 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto, Ontario

I see depression as having two origins. It is psyche's response to being overwhelmed or being unable to deal with particular circumstances in one's life. Then energy is not available for every day tasks. Depression can also be understood as a soul-loss, that is, a lost connection to the energy that creates meaning. As a Jungian Analyst, my focus is on uncovering the unconscious reasons for the depression and to find creative ways to release blocked psychic energy.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Depression may involve feelings of sadness, guilt, loss of interest, lack of energy, and changes in sleep and appetite. Life feels dark and hopeless. Counseling can help you identify the reasons these feelings have arisen, whether from current life events and/or past hurts, and resolve these feelings in a way that allows you to regain a sense of hope, self esteem, and confidence in the future.

Clinical Mental Health Counsellor and Life Coach

123 Edward Street, Toronto, Ontario

Have you been experiencing persistent feelings of sadness or discontent? Perhaps you’ve been feeling hopeless, lethargic, achy, anxious or angry? Has your low emotional state been impacting your concentration, motivation, eating or sleeping habits? These are all signs of a depressed mood, which affects about 22% of all Canadians at any given time. Did you know that depression is one of the most common reasons people seek counselling? I use a number of evidence-based therapeutic approaches in my work with clients who are experiencing depressive symptoms, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solutions-focused brief therapy (SFBT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT).

Mitra Gholamain, Ph.D. C. Psych

Registered Psychologist

1300 Yonge Street, Suite 407, Toronto, Ontario

Depression is usually defined as feeling sad and emotionally distraught. However, contrary to such common beliefs, depression is about losing contact with life. A person who is depressed is usually lethargic, disinterested, devoid of all feeling, including feeling of sadness. Depression is about loss of vitality and zest for life. In most cases, depression is triggered by the experience of loss (i.e. loss of a relationship, capacity for work, illness, financial instability or dislocation). Psychotherapy provides a safe space to process life experiences that might have activated such feelings of loss and offer support to work through such challenging life experiences.

Registered Psychotherapist

1246 Yonge Street, Suite 303, Toronto, Ontario

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.
