But you ARE an expert. You might not have medical diplomas and credentials plastered all over your walls, but that doesn't mean a thing. Sure it deserves a disclaimer, but that's as far it goes. And for that matter, ALL supposedly expert psychiatrists would have to offer the same disclaimer...their advice might be bad, and they might not get us better. Real expertise as I see it comes from personal research and personal experience. An expert on drag racing engines for example didn't learn his/her best hotrod tricks from a class or a book, but from realworld experience under the blazing heat of the dragstrip.

I would wager a bet...put any psychobabble regular, including you, up against a psychiatrist. The contest is to see who can get a depressed patient well the fastest. I'm placing my bets on you James.

Disclaimer well taken. But like I said, even a supposed credentialed expert would have to offer the same disclaimer. They don't know any more, and probably less, than you do.
