Psychotherapy is a form of treatment often used in depression. There are number of forms of psychotherapy including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Cognitive Behaviourial Therapy
CBT deals with changing your behaviour or thoughts, which in turn can stop the downward spiral of your thoughts. CBT identifies thoughts, feelings and behaviours and then breaks the links between these.
Once the thoughts, feelings and behaviours are identified, the aim of CBT is to break the link between this cycle and stop the downward spiral. CBT is provided by professional therapists but a lot of it is work off your own back and a lot of ‘homework’ is needed to be done. A couple of question marks above CBT include that it doesnt deal with the past which in some cases can be a cause of depression.
This treatment is something that may not be well advertised on other sites but I think anything that is on offer is worth taking into consideration and is certainly something that has helped me. Clinical hypnotherapy and not the stage hypnotherapy allows you to be put into a very relaxed state which leaves the subconcious mind open for positive suggestion. The subconcious mind is the part of the mind which controls everthing that doesnt need to be thought about to do, this also holds the key to our inner thoughts, memorys and feelings. By accessing this part of our minds hypnotherapy is able to change the way our thoughts may be processed.
