Managing depression is easier when you use positive coping strategies. Talking about and addressing your thoughts and emotions realistically helps to break the downward spiral of depressed mood. Together, we will work to change the patterns of behaviors and thoughts that keep you depressed, and move towards a more active and fulfilling life. The heavy cloak of depression can be lifted and you can live again.

At times everyone experiences sadness in their life and can become depressed when things don’t go as planned. It is important to recognize the difference between everyday situations that cause feelings of sadness and more extreme feelings of sadness that affect day to day function. I'll help you sort out these feelings and cope with the different life situations.

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.

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.

Depression is all encompassing. It affects all aspects of our life including our physical health, our emotional state, our thinking patterns, our behaviours and reactions, and our relationships. We often lose interest in participating in life and this can lead to feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness. Working together in therapy, we will reconnect you with your world using proven techniques, and help you reconnect with joy.

I understand that reaching out when you have depression can be extremely hard. I also know that the experience of depression can be different for each person, thus, I tailor the treatment to suit you as an individual and your unique needs. We will work together to view ways in which your thoughts, emotions and behaviors are contributing to mood, and work to identify areas to intervene to help you feel better.

I use Cognitive-behavioural Therapy (CBT) for depression and it starts with education about depression and helping the client establish structure around daily activities (behavioural activation), to become more aware of their mood and challenge intrusive thoughts in order to engage in pleasurable activities. The client and I continue to work together to replace intrusive thoughts with more balanced thoughts the client holds about the self, the world, and the future, which may contribute to feelings of hopelessness.

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.

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.

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.

In my practice I work a multi pronged approach to this difficult state being. Traditional talk therapy: Giving space for the client to explore and express feelings, own awareness’s, transform thoughts, grieve, vent, and neutralize guilt, anger and fear. New understandings and thus new neural pathways begin to form. Also marital therapy, Somatic focusing: A profound process of accessing the deep subconscious through breathe work and closed eyed dialoguing with the body, the mind and spirit. And Life Coaching, meditation, visualization, Emotional Freedom Technique, New Decision Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Cranosacral, Reiki, forgiveness and acceptance work. The combination is powerful.

Depression can leave individuals or even the couples system stuck in a negative cycle. These feelings and experiences are normal, and individual and/or couples therapy can help. You do not need to do this alone. Within a relationship it might feel like one partner needs to engage with this on their own either seeking counselling or doing their own work to recovery. The research, however, would suggest that engaging in couples therapy might just be the best investment for your relationship.

Toronto, Ontario M6K 2P8 | 6474927254

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 more than just feeling sad. It drains your optimism, energy, and drive. It can seem like there’s no way out. By understanding the cause of your depression and recognizing the different symptoms and types of depression, you can take the first steps to feeling better and overcoming the underlying problem. It tells us something is off and needs to be looked at.

When people are self-critical, beat up on themselves, put themselves down and pressure themselves therapy offers exercises that can help you develop an antidote, a supportive voice that can counter the negative thoughts and self-treatment. It is also often helpful to access core feelings of shame or worthlessness and work through early experiences contributing to this believes and experiences. With the knowledge you now have as adult you can revisit old memories and rewrite the narrative with more support for yourself and perhaps others in your life as well. Resolving depressive feelings may also involve changing circumstances in your life, through behavioral change done in planned steps.

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.
