Cause of Depression

Reverse therapy refers to this condition as de- pression for a particular reason. When our headmind thinking tries to force us to conform to be a particular kind of person e.g. "strong", "nice", "dependable", "always in control" etc then any emotions that don't fit that self image are de-pressed back into the body. For example a person could try to be the perfect employee, never complaining even when pushed to the limit. They may feel anger at being repeatedly asked to stay late or fear at having to do something new. Their body would be telling them to speak up to their boss and also ask for some help with the new task. But they don't because headmind thinking is saying that's weak or selfish.

The most common emotions that are de-pressed are fear, anger or sadness. When the emotions are left unexpressed and not acted on they build up and there is a pressure cooker effect. This leads to an alarm response being created in the hypothalamus (part of the emotional brain or limbic system). This alarm response creates a state of anxiety and over-arousal using the nervous system and the hormonal system. The body then tries to compensate by reducing serotonin (a mood booster) and increasing nor-adrenaline which damps down the nervous system creating lethargy, low mood and other symptoms. This is then called clinical depression.

Treatment for Depression

Reverse Therapy works with clients to find out in what situations emotions are being de-pressed. Clients are then encouraged to take the action their body needs to resolve those emotions. Clients are also taught how to be aware of their bodies so they can notice and take action on their emotions in the future to stay well. Part of the process is reconnecting clients with the things they want to be doing with their life and taking small steps to increase confidence.

Symptoms of depression include:

  • Sleep disturbance
  • Poor concentration
  • Appetite problems
  • Cravings and addictions
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Inner emptiness
  • Low mood
  • Anxiety
  • Lethargy
