Winnie's approach to depression draws primarily from Cognitive- Behavior Therapy. If you feel that you don't have the energy to do things, or even get up in the morning, then come in for counselling.

Depression is a common response to stressful life events, whether prolonged or acute. I help clients determine the possible causes, healthy copying strategies, support systems. Often my clients respond well to the offer of mindful presence and an empathic ear. I prefer to be a part of a larger team helping the client by encouraging them to speak with a spouse/partner, other family, doctor or religious community. I support responsibly the client's choice to pursue pharmaceutical treatment or not.

Over the course of life, one could experience depression, and lose both interest and energy to engage in daily life activities. In depression counselling, I will walk along side with you to unpack your situation and to draw out those negative feelings and thoughts relating to the situation. Together, we will explore those feelings and thoughts, and examine their validity. Moreover, I will support you and assist you to come up with some strategies to break some unhelpful behaviour patterns. You will be empowered to make positive changes, which allow you to see your situation from different perspectives. Sessions can be conducted in English or Cantonese.

Markham, ON L3P 2T2

Depression is not a sign of weakness! I can help you alleviate the guilt that accompanies depression. I am trained in evidence based strategies that are as effective as medication, but also better for relapse prevention. Being compassionate to the self and learning to adjust negative thought and behaviour patterns are key factors in overcoming depression. I will work with you to establish small manageable goals that will not overwhelm you. I will help you to improve relationships that typically play a major role in sustaining depressive symptoms. Simply taking the time to talk and process your thoughts will help you to feel better after only 1 session.

Depression is still so misunderstood in today's modern society. It is very commonly mis-diagnosed or too quick to be diagnosed by our traditional medical facilities, often leaving the person feeling worse off than they were before. I work with clients to find solutions out of their depression, to create goals for themselves, even small mini goals a day have an inspiring effect for the sufferer. I offer hope and light at the end of the tunnel, so the client can see a future for themselves.

6633 Highway #7 (at Ninth Line), Markham, ON L3P 1Y7

I'm a relational psychotherapist. So while I know that you feel bad inside, I also see that a lot of those bad feelings - worry, low self-esteem, fear of failing, depression - exist at the boundary or interface where you meet the world. They're relational feelings as well as self-feelings. They sound like: "Am I good enough? Have I made a mistake in their eyes? Do they like me? Am I in trouble?" When you feel that the answers to these questions are negative, then you feel badly about yourself, in yourself. Relational psychotherapy helps you understand your depression, yourself and how just being bad feelings is the first step towards moving past them.

Todd Hayen, PhD, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

Many years ago depression was called melancholia and was not considered so negatively as it is in our current "performance" focused culture. We are expected to be "up" continuously in today's busy life-styles, with work, children, relationships, and even in our playtime. The result of this sort of expectation and be debilitating and certainly can lead to long bouts of feeling out of control, unfulfilled, unmotivated and ultimately immobilized. Depression can certainly be dealt with through very effective therapeutic techniques. I work with clients to better understand the root cause of their sadness and help them to look at the possible meaning behind their depression and how to best cope.

Everyone experiences sadness during their life time. However, if your sadness has bothered you for a period of time and affected your school/work performance, appetite, sleep, regular routine, and relationships with people around you, you may be struggling with depression. I use Cognitive-Behavioral approach which has proven to work effectively for depression to help people examine their thinking patterns and change their unproductive behaviors. Depression is treatable and cannot be ignored. Otherwise, the problem can become more chronic and severe which make it difficult to treat.
