How to Know its Time to Treat Your Depression

Currently, depression is very common. We mention that not to disparage your own experience but to let you see that you are not alone in the struggle toward getting better.

It is generally agreed upon that one of the leading causes of depression are, broadly, "stresses." An essential aspect of our treatment involves locating your stresses and exercising them.

If you are constantly distressed, increasingly tired, losing interest in everything (known as Anhedonia), deal with a general feeling of ridiculousness, or experience profound dissatisfaction in everything you do and feel – it is time to seek help.

If your depression causes you great anxiety – we will help you through that as well. Depression and anxiety often come hand-in-hand, and if acute enough, can be debilitating. Our treatment is to help bring balance back into your life. To help you recognize that, although you may be stuck with depression as an ailment, there are tools that will help you reckon with it and surpass its terrible grasp.

Symptoms of depression include:

  • Consistent feelings of sadness or irritability
  • Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed
  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain
  • Difficulty falling asleep or getting out of bed
  • Feelings of restlessness or tiredness
  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Thoughts or acts of self-harm

If you suffer from one or more of these symptoms, know that there is help. Dr. Roy is here to help you understand and treat your condition. Book a consultation by contacting Roy Psychotherapy today.

Dr. Roy's Integrative Approach

Tested. Trusted. Proven Effective.

Different treatments work better for different patients. Depression treatment is never a one-size-fits-all solution. Roy Psychotherapy utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to provide comprehensive treatment plans tailored to his patient's needs. Through ongoing assessment and evaluation, he develops real, lasting solutions based on the most effective forms of psychotherapy for each patient.

Long-term depression results in physical imbalances in the brain. Many brain currents that regulate your moods become dysregulated under depression. These imbalances can result in all kinds of undesirable behaviours that, if experienced regularly, can negatively impact the experience of depression further.

Consistently inappropriate responses to emotional events or drastic responses to negative events are signs that you will be able to benefit from Roy Psychotherapy's treatments. Our treatments aim to help stop those undesirable responses and help you achieve balance when responding to these stimuli.

Our doors are always open to you. We will welcome you into a safe and compassionate environment staffed with professionals that understand what you are going through. Helping you long-term is our goal. The tools we use in treatment mean to be taken by you through your life to use as tools whenever you need them most.

Dr. Roy's approach is integrative, blending treatment modalities to give his patients the most robust care possible. He uses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for depression treatment, but he also relies on a range of other therapy approaches to ensure effective treatment of all symptoms and conditions. CBT is renowned for its ability to treat depressive disorders—including Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)—and improve a patient's quality of life. If you need to reclaim your health and well-being, Dr. Roy is here to help.
