JohnLA tried two of the three. ECT didn't help him, but Deep TMS helped him significantly. The clinician who treated him said she had seen a "higher rate of efficacy" with Deep TMS than with rTMS.

Prior to trying Deep TMS, JohnLA had also tried medical marijuana, ketamine infusions, and an experimental treatment at UCLA called TNS.

Of course, there's no guarantee that Deep TMS would help you. There's a good chance that it wouldn't help.

Synchronized TMS (sTMS) appears to help a much larger percentage of patients than Deep TMS, but it probably won't be available for a few years yet.

A treatment that's currently available that has helped people who have failed both TMS and ECT is neurofeedback. I've done this treatment, and it decreased my anxiety significantly and decreased my depression somewhat.

Neurofeedback isn't nearly as popular in the UK as it is in the US, but there are probably a few dozen neurofeedback clinicians working in the UK.
