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.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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!

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.

Depression can be debilitating on one's day-to-day life. In my practice, I offer a safe place to help you recognize the features and patterns of your depression with the use of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques to help you regain control of your life. In particular, CBT is among the most researched and proven treatments for mild to moderate depression. I strive to incorporate cognitive behavioural focused intervention into individually tailored treatment. My gentle integrative approach can help uncover your strength and the positive aspect that may have been absent.

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

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

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.

A depressed mood state may have many contributing factors. I work with my clients to address the negative thoughts, feelings and assumptions that may be causing them distress. If depression is situational, we work together to create an action plan for addressing the presenting problems and/or developing effective coping strategies. I draw on techniques from CBT and narrative therapy to try and shift my clients' core beliefs, assumptions and automatic thoughts.

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.

Depression can drain us of energy and prevent us from enjoying even the simple pleasures of life. Beilieving that change is possible is often very challenging for someone suffering from depression. The goal of counselling is to work with someone who can walk with you through the changes that may result in different internal experiences. It can also help in minimizing any "unnecessary" negative thoughts or cognitions that actually contribute to low mood, loss of energy and hope.

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.
