> Sorry, I didn't mean to insult your intelligence by suggesting that just having somebody empathetic sitting with you for an hour or so would be enough to help your depression.

No offense taken.

> It's just I'm really cynical about these alternative treatments. For me, when I'm feeling suicidal and extremely anxious, the idea of being given something like Rhodiola Rosea is something akin to spraying lavendar around a woman in child birth, when she just wants an epidural!

I've tried Rhodiola Rosea, and lavender aromatherapy, and more herbs and supplements than I can count. Neurofeedback is the treatment that's helped me the most, long-term. This includes all treatments, conventional and unconventional.

> I read the link you sent me on neurofeedback, thanks for that. It sounds interesting. I will do a bit more research on it. How could you tell it was helping you?

For over a year before I tried neurofeedback, I'd been ruminating many times a day about a former girlfriend. After about ten neurofeedback sessions, I realized that I was rarely thinking about my former girlfriend anymore.

For years, every time I went to a restaurant or to a bar, I would unconsciously rip my paper napkin into little bits. I hated this habit, and tried many times to stop it, but I couldn't. After I'd been doing neurofeedback for a while, I stopped ripping up my napkins.

I used to feel extremely self-conscious when I was out in public -- at the supermarket or the mall or while walking down a busy street. Neurofeedback eliminated this self-consciousness.

> I came off my seroxat around January of this year and I was kind of dabbling around with all of the meds that I have. I was doing ok until about two weeks ago and then all of a sudden I started to spiral down, panic attacks, really empty, disorientated feeling, constant anxiety, no interest in anything and not sleeping for days, not eating and retching, then come the suicidal thoughts. I'm back on the Seroxat now and feeling better but would something like Neurofeedback help me when I'm in that state do you think?

There's a good chance that neurofeedback would help you. There are several neurofeedback protocols. I greatly admire Peter Van Deusen, a neurofeedback clinician and trainer. A few years ago, he developed a protocol called Whole-brain Training Circuit. There are six Van Deusen-trained neurofeedback clinicians working in the UK. You can find them here:
