A study by Sheffield University found that 46% of patients with depression who received cognitive behavioural therapy reported at least a 50% improvement in their symptoms, compared to only 22% who were not offered the therapy.
Medication can be a useful step in alleviating the distressing symptoms but talking therapies can also have an important role in helping the sufferer deal with the impact their illness can have on their life.
It is important to find an experienced therapist to work with – you would not let someone with no experience fix your car so why would you let someone poorly qualified try and help you when you may be feeling at your lowest?
We are able to offer assessments with psychotherapists and psychologists who have years of experience of providing depression support and can help you feel better.
There are many types of talking therapies and finding the right one for you may take a few attempts and depend upon what is troubling you and how best work.
