Depression Hurts, But Cognitive Training Can Heal It

Of all the cognitive disorders, few can stifle personal development like depression. The signs of depression are an overwhelming heavy feeling and lack of energy all the time.

But depression is not insurmountable. At Critical Thinking for Success, we work hard to help people understand that the key to overcoming depression was within them all along.

The power resides in their magnificent brains!

Read on to learn how we train the brain to combat depression at Critical Thinking for Success!

What are the Root Causes of Depression?

To treat depression, we must first understand where it comes from in the brain. Depression occurs when parts of the brain slow down their operations.

So why does this slow down occur?

Often people will cause this slow down by repressing painful feelings like hurt, loss, or anger. They will literally decrease their brain function to protect themselves from the pain.

Depression can also occur when an illness or injury impacts the brain and slows its functioning.

Who Will Typically Suffer from Depression?

Depression can impact anyone. But it most often occurs in people who have experienced a significant loss in their lives. For example, someone who lost a loved one or got fired from a job they enjoyed will likely become depressed.

People who grew up around family members with depression will also likely experience the disorder.

No matter who experiences depression, no one is without hope. Our team uses proven cognitive treatments to show the brain it can defeat depression!

How Can Depression Treatments Train Your Brain?

We have developed many techniques for combatting depression. What makes these methods so effective is their focus on treating the root causes of the problem. Our team also personalizes treatment for each patient based on their needs and situation.

Here’s a quick summary of how our services accomplish this:

  • Neurofeedback/Biofeedback – These proven methods identify what parts of the brain have slowed down and then send signals to those areas to speed them back up.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy This technique identifies cognitive skills the depressed brain lacks and provides exercises for developing those skills.
  • Success Coaching – Our success coaches help clients to understand why they’re depressed and develop strategies for dealing with the condition.

What Results Can I Expect from These Depression Treatments?

Many people have come to us after coping with depression for many years. And we are proud of the many successful partnerships we’ve had.

We have seen countless people go from being hopelessly miserable to being engaged, excited, and optimistic. Some of these clients even found this relief in a couple of weeks!

It is all part of our mission to get people back to enjoying life again!
