Counsellors can help clinically depressed or even mildly depressed individuals find the origin of their depressive episodes, so their medical condition is treated more permanently.

In combination with antidepressant medication or without, cognitive behavioral therapy, bi-lateral stimulation as an exposure therapy are skillfully woven into Shift’s protocol, to create a structured and highly effective treatment for a condition that may have been thought to be previously just treatment resistant depression and loss of interest.

Risk factors and development factors are investigated in the initial intake session to find the best treatment for major depressive disorder which will positively effect mental health care. Continued screenings for treatment progression and depression symptoms are present in all subsequent sessions, as well. Additionally, Shift provides a downloadable app to enhance the client’s ability to assess their mood and results across time.

During therapy, limiting beliefs and dysfunctional needs are removed and risk factors such as isolation from friends and family, overloading with work, social interactions or previous trauma is treated. Shift’s treatment is effective for children, elderly and adult individuals. Depression counsellors and psychologists can help to remove the symptoms to allow you to get back to an enjoyable life.
