CBT or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is the most well researched and well regarded form of therapy for Depression and Anxiety.
Most doctors today request CBT for their patients because they have seen the results and outcomes for themselves. When it comes to treating Depression CBT is the treatment of choice.
Information about Depression
We all experience some degree of depression in our lives. Some people experience depression more often and more severely than others.
It is quite difficult to assess ones' own depression and reach out for help.
Our defense mechanisms, such as denial, anger, shame, are always telling us that we should be able to deal with life and that asking for help is a sign of weakness.
The consequences of untreated depression can include relationship conflict and breakdown, work problems, anger, moodiness and procrastination, isolatory behaviours such as not socialising and cancelling arrangements, alcohol or drug overuse and in extreme cases self harm and suicide.
