If you experience feelings of heaviness, sadness, isolation, and numbness, it can be difficult to lift the fog. Often, depression can present in different ways for different people. Some find themselves more irritable, quicker to cry, and frustrated at the world. Others turn inward, with negative self-talk, more time in bed, and difficulty getting through a daily routine. If this applies to you, know that you are already on the right path toward healing.
In our collaborative process, the therapists at The Toronto Centre For Emotional Health aim to help you unpack the cognitive and emotional ways depression has manifested in your life. By using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion(ally) Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness, we aim to find the root of your depression, understand how it impacts your daily life, and explore ways in which to improve the quality of your life.
Typically, individual sessions for depression will comprise of around 8 to 20 sessions, depending on a case-by-case basis.
