Depression can manifest as anger, eating disorders, feeling low or even as chronic pain. These are symptoms, which if we look below them often reveal a deeper discontent or trauma. We try to get rid of the symptoms with pills in order to fit in and function with the rest of society. However, until the underlying cause is healed, we will always come up against a feeling of being stuck and an inability to get what we want in our life.
I work with individuals to identify thoughts and behaviours that keep them locked in repetitive, negative patterns of being that they may feel unable to get out of. As well as working cognitively we work together to heal the underlying wounds that gave rise to those negative patterns of behaviour in the first place. By healing at the root, we interrupt these patterns, allowing for more flow, movement and direction in one’s life to occur.
