Depression is often touted as something that people experience at any given time. That is true to an extent but when the problem manifests into something care and attention is the solution. Let us look at the various forms of depression therapies available. In truth, there are hundreds available, but let zero it down to the ones that are doable and workable from a simplistic perspective.


Psychoanalysis as a tool has been around for a long time and is considered to be the best format available. The methodology used by an expert therapist is to probe the mind of the subject by taking into account the impulses and the behavioral patterns to reach a conclusive analysis. During the various sessions which can last for a couple of weeks and may go on for years provides the professional and the patient in the treatment process and progress.

Rational Emotive Therapy and Cognitive Therapy

Another format used in the treatment of depression is cognitive therapy. The patient undergoes a series of sessions to help her/him recognize reasons why problems occur. The objective here is to turn the situation around and help the person resolve the issue at the earliest constructively instead of going through the ring for a long time. The teachings of rational emotive therapy help patients work out the chinks by tracking the triggers. It helps the professional formulate a strategy to address the root cause and work out a systemic approach to deal with the depressive state of mind.


Brainspotting is a relatively new type of therapy designed to help people access, process, and overcome trauma, negative emotions, and pain, including psychologically induced physical pain.

Brainspotting was developed through David Grand's work with survivors of trauma, and many mental health professionals utilizing the approach have found it to be an effective form of treatment for a variety of mental health concerns.

Interpersonal Therapy

Another form of therapy available to treat depression is Interpersonal therapy that can be used through NLP or neuro-linguistic programming. As a formula, it works on the patient through the prism of psychoanalysis in examining the relationship module with various people in her/his life. The depressive state may arise from something as minuscule as a passerby, a rude employee, a classmate, spouse, family member, and so on and so forth. During the interpersonal therapy sessions, the patient is encouraged to work out the problems associated with the individual either through a group session or individually. The objective here is to create an inventory so that both the counselor and the patient will work on a method to deal with depression and obstructive forces.

In a Nutshell

Plenty of options are available to treat depression. It takes time to get over a problem, but with a licensed professional on the job, a patient will be able to deal with triggers and get over a manic depressive state.
