Psychotherapy as an effective treatment for depression

Depression is a serious mental illness that can have a significant impact not only on emotional well-being but also on daily life. Feeling depressed is much more than being temporarily down or sad. Those affected speak of persistent feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness and emptiness. They may also experience loss of energy, sleep disorders, changes in appetite and concentration problems.

Outpatient psychotherapy has proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of depression. The aim of the therapy is to identify the specific characteristics and triggers of the depression.

Psychodynamic therapy
Psychodynamic therapy explores unconscious conflicts and patterns that may contribute to the development of depression. The patient is helped to understand and process deeply rooted emotional conflicts. This process can help to promote long-term changes in thinking, feeling and acting.

Interpersonal therapy (IPT)
Interpersonal therapy focuses on interpersonal relationships and their impact on mental health. Dr Antonia von Trotha and her team help their patients identify problematic relationship patterns and develop alternative ways of communicating and interacting. IPT can be particularly effective when the depression is triggered by social conflicts or loss. 

The selection of the appropriate form of therapy depends on the individual needs and causes of the depression, and both of the above-mentioned therapeutic approaches are usually incorporated into the sessions. The therapeutic process enables those affected to explore their thoughts and feelings, bring about positive changes and achieve better mental well-being in the long term.
