Coping with Depression

Coping with depression involves understanding that feelings of sadness are a completely NORMAL human response to loss and also that time is a significant factor in the dissolution of depressed feelings.

Depression or depressive thoughts and feelings can happen to anybody at any time.

The psychiatric model of depression suggests that people experiencing these types of thoughts and feelings are suffering a ‘medical illness’ that is totally beyond their control and that the solution to the ‘problem’ is obtained through the application of pharmaceutical drugs that ‘correct’ the chemical imbalances in the persons brain.

You may be surprised to know that although widely disseminated within our society as ‘fact’ that this is neither ‘true’ or particularly useful.

The psychiatric diagnosis of depression is actually based on an opinion rather than on biological science.

There is no actual biological test for depression, just an opinion based on the behaviours the sufferer describes to the doctor/psychiatrist.

The latest research into the efficacy of anti-depressants (not carried out by the drug companies) suggest that they are only ‘marginally’ more effective than placebos and even this ‘marginal’ difference is a statistical difference with clinical significance falling below the criteria (3 points on the depression scale) allowing the conclusion to be reached that they really work (Scientific American).

A New Approach to Coping with Depression

We believe that the best and most sustainable way of coping with depression is to learn how to manage the unhelpful thinking associated with feeling this way. Evidence clearly demonstrates that depression responds very well to ‘talking’ interventions and we offer a highly developed programme that tackles mental health issues from a completely new paradigm – that we can learn how to make fundamental changes to our core beliefs which reduces the production of depressive thinking at the deepest level.

This is what is focused on whilst following our Tranceformental CBT programme.

We offer all prospective clients an initial consultation to discuss your mental health problems prior to commencing any counselling.

The consultation is free and lasts around 50 minutes.

Initial consultations are also available as part of our online counselling service.

At Tranceform Psychology we emphasise the importance of the therapy relationship in helping people to bring about effective change, so its important to be able to ‘meet’ to discuss our change programmes BEFORE proceeding.
