People talk about being 'depressed' when they really mean they are feeling sad. Depression has very specific signs and symptoms that accompany deep sadness. Insomnia, exhaustion, over sleeping, loss of appetite or over eating are a few signs. Self-criticism, hopelessness, concentration difficulties, overall negativity and suicidal thoughts are some of the thoughts that overtake the mind. Irritability, anger, guilt, shame and nervousness can accompany the sad emotions. Both psychotherapy and couples therapy are very effective in treating depression by helping to reflect on what brought on the depression and what options to take on your own or together to over come it.

Depression is a natural & healthy response to depressive conditions, i.e. painful, toxic, disempowering & generally unhealthy environments & relationships. "I'm just a human being trying to make it in a world that is rapidly losing its understanding of being human." (John Trudell) - one of my favorite quotes. I do not pathologize depression (or any other kind of human distress), nor do I victim-blame (e.g. blaming it on genes or life choices). Instead, through our collaborative relationship & analysis of your story(ies), we work to develop meaningful insights & perspectives that work FOR you, not against you, to help you better get through what you're going through.

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.

Depression is a mood disorder that can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest that can interfere with daily functioning. Reaching out for help is a step towards wellness. Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but it is a very treatable condition. Therapy for depression helps you overcome the feelings of hopelessness and despair and to gain control of your life.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 is not something to be ashamed of, nor is it a character flaw or a sign of a weak personality. No one with depression can just "snap out of it". You wouldn't ask someone to "snap out of diabetes or some other illness and you cannot expect it of a person with depression. Everyone gets sad sometimes - a brief blue mood, feelings of disappointment or loss. The great news is that up to 80% of people who receive proper treatment improve as a result. There are two principle modes of treatment for depression - Psychotherapy and medication. You’re not alone; millions of families and friends have felt exactly like you. Your one step closer to change.
