CAN TREATMENT HELP?
The effectiveness of psychotherapies on reducing anxiety, stress and phobia and bringing down depression are well established. Cognitive behaviour therapy and clinical hypnotherapy have been found to be particularly effective. Psychologists will help you understand your thought process and the reasons for it.

Mere understanding can bring down anxiety levels and guilt.

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT
The treatment will depend upon several factors including the level of depression you are experiencing.
