While we all have days where we feel sad and 'depressed', if it goes on day after day so that negative thoughts make us feel exhausted, powerless, empty, discouraged and hopeless, then we need help. Leaving depression untreated can lead to several physical and mental complications and even suicide. Fortunately, trained counsellors can assist us in retraining our mind and teach us new skills to challenge depressive thinking so that we can lead a confidently depression free life.

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!

I want you to know that you do not have to be silent anymore or hide from your truth. I know you walk out the front door of your home and try to put that mask on every day. The mask that tries to tell the world that everything is okay. When people ask how you are, you probably respond saying good, when all you really want to do is scream "not good, not good at all, help me please!" Or maybe you have been stored up in your home and avoiding connections all together because you are tired of pretending that you are okay. I want to say to you, "I got you, I'm here to help, you don't have to pretend or be alone anymore, we really can do this, have faith."

Depression is the most frequent reason that people seek help through psychotherapy. It is estimated that 30% of people will have one episode of clinical depression in their lifetime. Many people don’t realize that depression has many faces. It’s certainly not just “feeling down” for a few days. It doesn’t always involve crying a lot – sometimes it’s more like feeling numb. It might look like not sleeping and feeling agitated and anxious and angry. It might look like just not wanting to do anything anymore and sleeping and eating too much. It might look like fatigue and body aches. Clinical depression is a real illness that effects so many facets of your life – physically, mentally,

We overuse the word " depressed" The typical short term "depression" people experience, is entirely different from the physical illness of depression that exhausts, immobilizes and sickens us. Your sad feelings and low moods deserve attention. Thankfully many options move us to enjoying life again. I can help you to navigate the challenges and to assess what resources best suit you. Medication is not for everyone but can be a life saver for many. Let's give you the compassionate attention you deserve. I can help you to decide whether its time for a medical opinion. You have suffered long enough and deserve help now.

Depression needs to be carefully examined in the context of one's life, past and current coping skills. Rhonda has extensive knowledge and skill in helping people to understand their depression, gain fresh insights about their lives and process those past or present events that may be contributing factors. She is strongly empathetic and intuitive and guides people through a process of coming to terms with their condition and navigating their way towards a "new" normal state. She often uses EMDR as part of the process, a technique which is highly effective in treating anxiety and depression.

Feeling depressed, discouraged, hopeless or helpless can be a painful "stuck" place to be in. We can help you process and overcome the adversity that contributed to this state of collapse, work through the thwarted survival responses that can underlie depression, well as develop skills to address the negative thoughts, assumptions, self-criticism and limiting core beliefs that might be maintaining your low mood and discouragement. We work with the emotional, mental and physical aspects of depression, using mindfulness, cognitive and body-based approaches that are trauma-focused. Together, we can support you to climb out from the depths, and restore hope and a sense of embodied aliveness.

Depression can be devestating for the person who experiences it, however, when looked at through a slightly different lense it can also be an opportunity to make the changes your body, mind, emotions, and spirit are demanding of you. I have supported many clients to recover from depression and live their lives with a renewed sense of meaning and hope.

Depression robs us of our enjoyment of life--either through physical symptoms, loss of hope that things will get better or joy in activities that we once loved. When we suffer from depression, our world can become very small. Therapy is a way to start to regain your world. Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I will work with you to look at the thoughts that are contributing to your depression. We will explore lifestyle changes that can help in your healing, as well as develop ways of coping with any anxiety that may be contributing to 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.
