Psychotherapy and counseling for depression are one of the most well researched treatments. There is no other treatment that has been shown to be more effective. If you are interested in phone counseling for depression, visit www.phonecounseling.net

I use a combination of hypnosis with psychotherapy which was how Freud had originally used it. I find it works very smoothly because hypnosis suspends the critical factor so the subconscious is more easily accessed and it makes it that bit easier to locate and release repressions. Conditions that would normally take years to resolve by psychotherapy can be resolved in months. One of my specialities is the treatment of depression using hypno-psychotherapy and 12 weekly sessions is normally what is required.

I like how sshowalter speaks about psychotherapy and the points she makes tell me that she knows what she is talking and her opinions can be trusted.

I happen to think that psychotherapy is extremely useful for treating not only depression, but for dealing with life in general. There are cognitive insights to be had, but perhaps more useful is creating a healthy relationship with the practitioner in which you can express your emotions without judgment. Good therapists (and good life or wellness coaches too for that matter) can give you support that is often difficult to find in the real world.
