Depression therapy is a type of therapy designed to help individuals suffering clinical depression. Symptoms of depression include fatigue almost every day, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, impaired concentration, insomnia or other sleep disturbances, diminished interest in most activities, feelings of restlessness or being slowed down, recurring thoughts of suicide and significant weight loss or gain. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the treatment of choice for depression as studies have shown that it works at least as well as antidepressants for people with moderate depression. The focus of CBT is on how people think (cognitive) and act (behavioral). Components of treatment often include increasing daily activities such as exercise and socialization. Therapy also helps clients identify negative thought patterns and replace them with more balanced thinking. If you are experiencing feelings of depression that you are finding difficult to manage on your own it may be beneficial to seek out the help of a CBT therapist.
