I’m a big fan of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, but, inevitably, some CB Therapists are better than others. The first one I used was OK but limited; the second one, recommended by my GP, was brilliant (but cost over £100 per hour).
If you can get a good CB Therapist on the NHS, you are lucky. If you go private, even a cheap one will cost you £50 per hour. So, if you haven’t much money and the NHS waiting list for CBT is a mile long, what else could you do?
I’m going to suggest a brilliant video by the American therapist Michael Yapko, “How to recover from depression”, subtitled “Why skills work better than pills.” IMHO it’s an hour of pure gold, I discovered it earlier in 2021, I wish I’d seen something like this decades ago.
Please watch it, and let me know what you think.
