More information

Everybody is different and every therapist is different so there are many different possible experiences during therapy. However there are a number of stages that you may go through.

Therapy is a positive and pro-active step, but at first you may feel nervous or shy, particularly if you have never done anything like this before.

You will be talking about things that are difficult. It may be the first time you have ever really talked about them so there's no denying that at times it will be hard. But because you are doing this in therapy you are not on your own, your therapist is there to help you and guide you. It's not uncommon to feel worse in the initial stages. You shouldn't feel put off by this. It means that something meaningful is happening, that the issues you are talking through are real and you are not avoiding the real problem. Stay with it, you will start to see a difference.

As time progresses you may start to experience a general shift in the way you think, feel or behave. Or, you may have 'breakthrough moments'. At those times something will suddenly make sense to you in a way it didn't before, or you will clearly see a way forward through a particular situation. The benefits of therapy will begin to take effect - you may see your symptoms start to decrease, you may begin to accept a difficult situation or you may begin to understand your own behaviour better and begin to be able to manage it positively. Overall you should be moving to a position where the issue that prompted you to seek therapy in the first place no longer dominates you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends 4 Therapies for depression:

1) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) affect your feelings and actions. It recognises and challenges negative thoughts that perpetuate the problems you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions. View CBT Therapists for Depression
2) Interpersonal Therapy
Interpersonal therapy focuses on the relationship difficulties you experience. It facilitates you in understanding problems differently. An objective of interpersonal therapy is to help you make helpful changes in how you relate. View Interpersonal Therapy Therapists for Depression
3) Psychodynamic Therapy
Psychodynamic therapy centres on the unconscious meaning of the issues you encounter. It facilitates you in being aware of parts of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to enhance your self-understanding to give you options. View Psychodynamic Therapy Therapists for Depression
4) Counselling
Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine which issue regarding your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you. View Counselling Therapists for Depression

"Pat is very empathic and calm. She is a great listener and is very astute in her responses. Pat is warm and accepting, I felt very comfortable when with her and found her easy to trust. Pat was very clear about my symptoms and why I may be experiencing them, which changed over the course of my therapy. Pat inspired me to hope whilst balancing this with realistic goals. Pat is really insightful and hugely knowledgable about her subject."
