I Am Interested In Cognitive Therapy Versus Medication

    Combination

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
