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!

Depression robs us of the motivation to do things, including what we need to do to feel better. It can be like a black cloud that follows us around interfering with work, relationships, & enjoyment of life. Coming for counselling will provide you with a safe place to talk about what is troubling you with a caring, non-judgemental person. Together we will explore the causes of your depression, whether they be something recent, or old hurts. I will help you to identify the strengths that you can draw on to recover, & teach you the skills you need to cope with challenges & keep the depression from coming back.

The role of therapy in treating clinical depression is to help the person develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. Many studies support the idea that therapy can be a powerful treatment for depression. A review published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, for example, concluded that therapy combined with antidepressants worked better than depression medicine alone. Although there are fewer studies of therapy for treatment-resistant depression specifically, many experts still recommend it. One 2007 study found that for people who didn't respond to a specific drug treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy worked as well in reducing symptoms.
