Depression can be emotionally debilitating. Sleep disturbance, eating too much or lack of appetite, difficulty getting motivated doing daily tasks and being overwhelmed or feelings of sadness.
Psychotherapy can help with Depression.
Talk Therapy is a supportive treatment approach that can help validate your feelings and assist with making changes. It is a form of psychotherapy that emphasize the importance of the patient speaking to their counselor as the main means of expressing and resolving issues.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behavior patterns or treat mood disorders such as depression.
An important advantage of cognitive behavioral therapy is that it tends to be short, taking five to ten months for most emotional problems. Patients attend one session per week, each session lasting approximately 50 minutes. During this time, the patient and therapist are work together to understand what the problems are and develop new strategies for tackling them. CBT introduces patients to a set of principles that they can apply whenever they need to, and that’ll last them a lifetime.
Depression is a treatable condition.
