Depression and Psychotherapy (6)

Abstract – Depression has become highly treatable and this article explores some ways of treating it with the use of psychotherapy. The approach presented is a communication focused psychotherapy which has been developed and described by the author before. Psychotherapy alone may not be sufficient in more severe cases, where medication is usually added to bring faster relief to the symptoms of depression, which also facilitates the psychotherapeutic treatment.

Burnout and Psychotherapy (3)

Burnout is largely determined by how connected one is with oneself and others. The quantity of messages from oneself and the world is not what causes burnout, but how one selects and processes the messages, which is also related to the ability to draw healthy boundaries. Openness and transparency can prevent burnout on an organisational level. On an individual level, the communication with oneself is important, the identification of own needs, values and aspirations. Treatment of burnout needs to focus on the self-communication, the discovery of more meaning in one’s daily life, and especially so one’s true values, interests and aspirations, and on the communication used in interaction with others. In therapy, awareness for and experimentation with communication patterns and styles in self-communication and communication with others is very helpful in the treatment of burnout and the symptoms associated with it.

Communication-Focused Therapy (CFT) for Anxiety and Panic Attacks (2)

Communication-Focused Therapy (CFT) is a psychotherapy developed by the author, which can be  applied to a number of mental health conditions, including anxiety disorder and panic attacks. It focuses  on creating greater awareness and insight into internal and external communication patterns and  making changes to them. This also helps gain insight into the basic parameters, the needs, values and  aspirations which are important for motivation and the direction of changes, behaviors and interactions  with oneself and others.
