Depression Counselling Calgary

 

Takeaway: Depression is one of the most commonly experienced mental health concerns. The symptoms can become overwhelming, self-perpetuating, and lead to feelings of helplessness. While depression is common, each person’s individual experience and path to recovery is unique.

Transform Your Life with Depression Counseling in Calgary

When you’re experiencing depression, it can often feel overwhelming and like things will never get better. With the right support, however, healing is possible. Depression counselling in Calgary can help you get to the root of your suffering and learn new ways to cope.

Understanding Depression

Depression, one of the most prevalent mental health concerns, can cast a heavy shadow, permeating every aspect of life with its overwhelming symptoms and pervasive feelings of helplessness. But even within its grip, there is hope for happiness, joy, and lightness in life. At our North and South clinics in Calgary, our psychologists offer an array of tools and strategies to support you.

Tailored Depression Therapy

Shelly Qualtieri & Associates in Calgary, Alberta, understands depression's nuanced complexities and offers a holistic, strengths-based approach along with evidence-based strategies such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Narrative Therapy. We guide you through the depths of your struggles with tailored depression counseling to dispel misconceptions and empower you with practical skills for motivation and goal-setting.

Recognizing the Signs of Depression

Depression often hides behind misconceptions, misunderstood as mere sadness or laziness. However, we acknowledge its complex nature and commit to exploring its intricacies with you. If you've noticed subtle or overt signs of depression in yourself or a loved one‚ÄĒpersistent sadness, changes in sleep or appetite, withdrawal from activities or relationships‚ÄĒseeking professional assistance is a courageous step.

Overcoming Stigma and Seeking Help

Despite overwhelming evidence that depression is a worldwide and relatively common experience, social stigma still creates barriers that prevent people from accessing appropriate support. More than half of people who have experienced a major depressive episode will experience it again at some point in their life. Once depression is identified and supports are put in place, the majority report reduced symptoms and are better able to return to routine functioning.

Recovery from Depression

Getting better from depression is possible, though it often feels like it takes longer than desired. It's important to understand that recovery is not always linear. Even with a solid treatment plan and good support, ups and downs are normal and predictable parts of the process. Knowing this common recovery path helps manage expectations and encourages persistence.
