Dr. David Lake talks about how depression can be related to social anxiety, and about the different kinds of depression. He speaks of the kind that gets results, and the kind of depression for which you need medication. Here are a few quotes (this is a MUST listen if you’re depressed):
“When people have “melancholic depression” and they just drag themselves around and they can’t think and they can’t do anything at all, they’re absolutely exhausted all day long that’s actually a nasty business and is very very serious. And it’s important to recognise it because ordinary psychological treatments don’t work at all. Not at all. Not in the slightest.
Whereas with the other kind of depression, where people are reactive to life, either over a long period or fairly quickly, reactive to negative events, you can often use psychological treatments very successfully. Especially the energy therapy treatments.”
“We need the best of both worlds, we need the best of orthodox medicine and we need the best of natural medicine.”
David is a medical practitioner and psychotherapist who has been in private practice since 1977. He’s a supervisor of therapists. Dr. Lake completed 17 years of medical hypnosis, and 4 years of Analytic Psychotherapy supervision, as well as comprehensive training in Provocative Therapy.
Dr Lake is the author of ‘Strategies for Stress’, ‘She’ll Be Right” (a book on relationships for men); co-author with Steve Wells -whom you’ve heard of on podcast #5- of ‘New Energy Therapies: Rapid Change Techniques for Emotional Healing’ and ‘Enjoy Emotional Freedom’. With Steve Wells he is the originator of SET (Simple Energy Techniques) and PET (Provocative Energy Techniques).
“Medication doesn’t treat an underlying problem, but it gives you an opportunity to address all these personality issues that people bring to the table when they have depression.”
“A lot of people don’t realise that anxiety and depression often coexist. And even that depression can drive anxiety. So when you actually treat the depression properly a tremendous amount of anxiety may well resolve quite quickly.”

And David also mentioned “Transcranial magnetic stimulation”. See here what Wikipedia says about it.
I would really appreciate a simple (one sentence is enough) review in iTunes as this is seen as a “stamp of approval” which causes iTunes to know this show is great and will therefore be shown to more people who’re struggling to beat their social anxiety.
