In most information about depression there is talk about how to cope with it, understand and manage the symptoms. The most commonly recommended approach for depression is CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). This is most often recommended by the Medical model starting with your general practitioner, doctor, who may refer you to a psychologist or psychiatrist. While this approach has expanded in recent years from working with CBT strategies and tools for managing thoughts and behaviours, to EMDR and Mindfulness meditation, the main ideas are about managing the condition rather than complete recovery.
In more recent times there has also been a move to take away the shame frequently associated with depression and mental health issues generally, which has to be a good thing. However, this has led to more people than ever being diagnosed with depression and the use of pharmaceutical drugs sky-rocketing. The problem is that the Medical Model still largely holds the view that depression can’t be cured, but only managed and is often for life. The issue here is that this is not in keeping up with the latest findings in neuroscience that shows that the brain can be cured and new neural pathways can be formed with appropriate treatments and quickly, for a large proportion of the population.
So if you go down the pathway of seeking help through the medical model you are likely to be able to obtain a Medicare rebate package of several sessions to see a psychologist, often accompanied with medication. However, this also comes most frequently with the deeply held belief in medical professional education that recovery or cure is not possible and that the only option is a program of management, supported by the pharmaceutical industry.
Intention is so important.
What if there is another way?
I believe there is a need to normalise many things that are currently deemed abnormal. I know that depression is a normal state. We all experience depression from time to time. We all experience sadness, losses, disappointments, shocks, injustice and trauma. It shakes us up at a deep level. We may need to withdraw to digest it and come out of it in our own time. This is normal and I believe should not be medicalised and labelled as if there is something wrong with you. The mind and body is resilient and there is a natural process of homeostasis that takes place is we allow it to take place. I talk about this in my book Rapid Core Healing. However, if you are finding it hard to come out of or assimilate your depression, it is highly appropriate to seek effective help. We all need help sometimes. However it is hard for the public to know where to go.
Imagine if you worked with someone who strongly believes that recovery is possible and not only that, probable and that recoveries are the norm and that they take place frequently with their clients. The clients themselves notice the difference and recover and move on from their depressive states into new mind and emotional states and new perspectives and in only a few sessions.
I am a psychotherapist and clinical hypnotherapist with over twenty years of clinical experience with clients who is also a founder of psychotherapy who has created a way of working with the mind and heart that is able to locate the root of the depression and assist you in unravelling it quickly. Clearing one neural pathway at a time with most people requiring only 3-5 sessions for recovery. Why settle for managing symptoms when you could be symptom free?
I am reaching out to you to let you know that depression does not have to be a life-sentence, with effective help.
I look forward to a time when this new intention, way of working with the human experience and mental health becomes central to the medical model and available to all. In this I provide sessions in person and online to individuals and online training to those who would like to become practitioners of the ways I am working Emotional Mind Integration EMI.
