Bayridge Counselling Centre
Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling
9 Livingston Ave, Grimsby, ON
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.

Are you feeling unhappy, sad, down in the dumps? Do you eat to much or not enough? Or perhaps you have lost interests in activities you once enjoyed. Do family and friends suggest to you that you are different in ways? These are but a few symptoms that might suggest a depressed mood. If you are concerned about your mood and need help call David. My approach is eclectic. I use CBT, Solution Focused Approach and if appropriate Hypnosis.

Anywhere, anytime! Access help when you need it! Therapy that fits your life and joins you on your journey.
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!

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.
