It is interesting how depression has become a common theme in North American culture. Often with an objective to eliminate or "move through" such feelings. Yet at some point in a person's life, for a major portion of the human population, he or she will experience this feeling. Perhaps another way to view depression is to recognize it for the invitation it can provide? To look deeper into one's personal experience and recognize some thinking, behaviour, or beliefs requiring growth, change, or adjustment.

Unlike healthy sadness or a "blue mood", depression is not always connected with a particular loss. It can feel as though someone threw a dark, wet, overcoat on top of us and we are unable to move forward or see the good in ourselves or the world around us. Depression is not something you can just snap out of. Fortunately using cognitive behavioral therapy strategies we can focus on identifying and changing your unhealthy beliefs that may be deepening depressive symptoms. Later as your symptoms improve, we can then focus on relapse prevention.

Counselling for depression can help you in many ways: • offer support • problem solving • recognize and change your thinking and behavior • get your emotional needs met • relate to others • improve skills such as communication, boundaries and assertiveness • increase your self-esteem • deal with guilt and a sense of failure • treat the causes, not only symptoms • get you back into living your life • avoid recurrence. I use physical, emotional, cognitive, interpersonal and spiritual methods to treat depression. I have a special interest and expertise in working with pregnancy and postpartum depression that preserves the well-being of both mom and baby and the whole family.

Feelings of sadness are a normal part of life, but if these feelings become intense or don't pass then you may be depressed. If you experience changes in diet, sleep patterns, activities, and motivation, then I can help. The method that I use in the treatment of depression is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I teach clients how to challenge negative core beliefs and thought patterns, and how to use various methods to alter patterns of behaviour. By exploring the environment, physical self, thoughts, and behaviours, the negative effects on mood can be determined and changed for a more positive outcome.

Everyone feels “down”, gloomy, discouraged, or sad from time to time. For some people, however, this “low” or depressed mood persists. When symptoms last for two weeks or more, and are so severe that they interfere with daily functioning, it is called depression. While clinical depression usually occurs in adulthood, it can also affect children, adolescents, and seniors, but it is more difficult to recognize in these groups. Factors such as low self-esteem and self-defeating or distorted thinking styles are connected with depression, otherwise known as a mood disorder. Events or circumstances in early childhood may also increase the likelihood of depression in adulthood. There is good new....

I approach depression differently from many other therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the depressing thoughts and feelings, I encourage clients to explore their depression. People develop tools and strategies to get unstuck from their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. They will learn how to change their behaviour based on what is most important to them rather than continuing to be held captive by their depression. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term.

Depression is a very common experience, whether it refers to how you are experiencing your life right now or to a clinical diagnosis. Fortunately, it is also very treatable, most often through talk therapy or counselling, although some people will also benefit from medication. I am very experienced in working with depression and anxiety, combining various approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Interpersonal Therapy, to help you better understand and deal with feelings of being overwhelmed by life right now. You will be able to regain enjoyment and energy in your life and relationships and develop new perspectives and personal resources

General fatigue, constant lateness, loss of appetite, lack of concentration and procrastination can also be symptoms of depression. For more information or to set up an appointment you can visit my website at www.Verlyne.com Most people delay seeking help for depression because they feel like they should just snap out of it or that no one will be able to help them or change their situation. It is normal to feel this way and have this all-or-nothing approach when depressed. Seeking help for depression and allowing y

Depression is the most common mood disorder in the world. But it is also one of the most treatable. There have been well over 100,000 clinical studies on depression, so a lot has been learned, and it has become clear what the best treatment approaches are. Unfortunately, only one in four depressed people will seek psychological services. This is truly sad since cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal psychology can make a lasting difference in breaking your unique pattern of depression. Why not get started today on a brighter future?
