Depression can present as a low grade depression "I never really feel light hearted and happy' or as a Severe Depression that can be agonizing and debilitating 'I don't know how to ever get out of this dark hole'. Depression attacks the Sense of Self. Most often it is early life experiences that contribute to a person's vulnerability to depression. I like to work with EMDR, a trauma treatment method that helps the brain to process painful experiences from the Past and integrate those experiences into a healthier Here and Now. EMDR can support the person to leave the depressed state of Helplessness and supports the person to build Strengths and 'to come out of the shell' into a stronger Self.

Depression has many different forms & causes. It often involves anger at oneself, guilt and shame. Depression is sometimes related to life events in which one has been hurt, and treatment may center on facing and resolving the effect these experiences have had on you. Many kinds of emotional losses may lead to depression. Relationships with others and feelings about oneself are often painful in depression; these feelings can be worked through and resolved in therapy. Depression can be severe and present for a long time-- often tied to childhood experiences-- before one reaches the point of seeking help.
