Be warned! In the first part of therapy, you will probably cry a lot!! ONLINE PSYCHOTHERAPY

But crying's ok!

I mean, if it wasn’t that big a deal then you could deal with the depression on your own and recover straight away right?

So it’ll probably be a painful experience to lay your cards on the table and trudge through it all.

And if you’re thinking "well that doesn’t count for me because nothing major has ever really happened to me ", that’s not the point!

It's all relative to YOUR experiences and YOUR reactions to things. No-one else's!

It’s how YOU have coped with things in your life, and how YOU have perceived them – big or small.

It might be abuse, but then it might be something like being humiliated by a teacher in front of your class when you were ten.

Both are important experiences when it comes down to whether they have affected you in your life.

It’s all very subjective.

I've found a great ONLINE PSYCHOTHERAPY service that you might find interesting. You can have sessions via email, telephone, or Instant Messaging (real-time chat sessions on your computer, where you type instead of talk).

ONLINE PSYCHOTHERAPY...back to how your talking treatment can be a painful process





The Sleepydust Editor says:

My recovery from depression (whilst I had PVFS) was down to having psychotherapy.

And I can safely say that it's THE BEST thing I've ever done.


If you're depressed, then I urgently recommend that you try a talking therapy of some sort.

If you're housebound, or just want to conserve your energy and don't want to travel to see a therapist, then why not try online counselling?


There are services out there that can give you counselling sessions via telephone, via email, or via 'Instant Messaging' (real-time chat sessions on your computer, where you type instead of talk).


I've found a great online counselling service that does just that.

When I first discovered this service, my initial concern was that they might not be opened-minded about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome /Fibromyalgia (since there are still some 'uninformed' medical professionals out there who don't believe that CFS/FM is real).

So I contacted the online counselling service about my concerns and this is their reply:

"These conditions [Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia] are not considered as relevant by some of the medical community but our psychotherapists are a little more open-minded!

I have someone very close to me who went through that horrific search of trying to figure out what her issues were... finally to be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia*. So I am quite aware of what this means to sufferers.

The issues we would address with any client would be the mental health ones related to their disorder. Usually depression and/or an overwhelming feeling of giving up on living are the presenting issues for people suffering from chronic conditions.

And that is what we address.

Guiding clients out of that dark place and into a place where they feel strong enough to tackle their physical problems."

* Fibromyalgia (FM) is very similar to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome /M.E. /Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, but Fibromyalgia sufferers basically suffer from more pain.
