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.

At the center of depression is buried life force, but the causes of depression can be complex and varied. So first we work to find the source of the pain and negative self-concept. The counseling can take place in conjunction with medication or without. Therapy centers around interrupting depressive thoughts and behavioral patterns, healing old wounds and often, for Highly Sensitive & Gifted/Creative clients, re-framing their challenges as gifts and augmenting social skills. Often in this population there is a long history of anxiety that has interrupted the meaningful social connections they yearn for, caused adrenal fatigue and created hopelessness. Re-establishing Self-Compassion is key.

Clients who come indue to patterns of depression, ask me how they can shrug off the heavy oppressive feeling that they live with on a regular basis. Many of them are tired of being tired. I remind them that the act of making and keeping an appointment is a big hurdle and congratulate them on reaching out for a collaborative professional hand. We co-discover their daily and seasonal patterns as an important first step. I work closely and compassionately with Clients to increase their awareness of how their thoughts and body are intimately connected.Through mindfulness meditation techniques and learning to be in the present moment, people begin to see the light at the end tunnel.
