Waking up in the morning, do you feel a sense of joy and peace, or do you experience heavy feelings of depression or anxiety? Perhaps you have experienced abuse, loss or other challenges and this makes it difficult for you to feel comfort or feel satisfaction in relationships? I may be able to help you feel better; I enjoy helping clients rediscover their own internal resources to move out of the heaviness and create a life of their design.

I teach clients with mild to moderate depression symptoms that depression can often be a messenger from our deepest self and/or a call to action. I actually suggest specific actions that they can take to break out of the depression--inaction cycles. I suggest that they do an "inner dialogue" with the depression and ask it what is the cause of the depression. I suggest that if they cannot get at the "root cause" of the depression that they at least attempt to get to the region of their psyche that the depression is coming from. I suggest hypnosis to them. Research has shown a marked reduction in depression with the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system with hypnosis.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.

Research shows that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is very effective for treating depression. Our therapists at Elim Counselling are trained in understaning the cognitive and behavioral factors that lead to and maintain depression. By using this model of therapy we have been able to help clients modify maladaptive thinking patterns and self sabotaging behaviours that are often part of the cycle of depression.

What too many people with depression seem to get wrong is the idea that when they "feel better," they will then get on with doing this or that. What I help my clients to understand is that it works the opposite way...in order to move past depression a person needs to take action, even when not feeling like it, in order to start to feel better, which can then encourage the person on to further action and hopefully create an upwards spiral. As well, I like to differentiate whether the depression is situational or endogenous.
