    Medication Vs Counselling

    i definitely dont believe in medication as a cure - check out socialaudit.com for some answers, medication is just a way of brushing true problems with inadequate services for mental ilnesses underenath the carpet and in the longterm only makes the problem worse

    Can't It Be Both?

    Cognitive therapy is great.  David Burns, MD book, "Feeling Good Handbook", made a huge difference in my understanding of my negative thinking.  Logically pointing out  erroneous thinking was what I needed.  I had a lot of twisted thinking going on: All or...

    Cognitive Therapy

    I have been in therapy for a while, but I have to have meds as well. Depression is real. And cannot be controlled without therapy and meds. So is bi-polar disorder. You need to talk and have meds to get your head on right.

    Eclectic Approach

    Cognitive therapy works well in helping to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.  Where counseling and therapy can benefit more than medication I agree with the approach.  I would much rather learn and think my way through things than pop another pill.  I have had...

    Cognitive Therapy

    Cognitive therapy is meant to be a complimentary therapy I believe. I found it really helped me to change my thinking. It enabled me to really consider my thoughts and question the truth of how I was thinking. I really enjoyed this book for that reason. I think everyone...

    Cognitive Therapy Works!

    I suffer from clinical depression - there are two sides to it. There is the physiology (chemical imbalance) and the psychology. I tried traditional therapy combined with medication - and it didn't help at all - my problems were not in the past - they were based in how my...

    Combination

    As most of the research says I think that a combination of both works best. Medication can help to relieve some of the physical symptoms of a disorder whereas cognitive therapy deals with the emotions and behaviours.
