Proven Method in Help for Depression


If you seriously want help for depression, It’s not what you should focus on to resolve it. And there is no need for ongoing session after session. There is an emotional cause behind many discomforts including depression and you don’t even have to know what the cause is. Time and again this proven method of Af-x Therapy (affects) applies a very unique and highly successful approach to help with depression, as well as many other discomforts.

Supported by the study of Affective Neuroscience, this method actually opposes the “mainstream view” of how people think their problems should be fixed. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to talk about your problems to beat depression. And as you continue reading here, you will discover that there are very good reasons for that.



A Different Approach:

For the treatment of depression, many people believe if they talk to an “expert” about the physical event that caused their depression or even about any depressed thoughts they may be experiencing, that information can then be analyzed so they can subsequently go about dealing with the depression.

And it may not just be depression that is of a concern. There are many other health, behavioural, stress and emotional problems that can accompany depression. Problems like anxiety, anger, headaches, sleep deprivation and digestive problems, just to name a few. And an abundance of negative thinking often coincides with depression.

No Talking: 

When it comes to help for depression and many other discomforts, Af-x Practitioners actually ask you not to talk about any confronting problems you may be experiencing because we believe that this can only deepen the problem. This “no-talking” approach has been of great comfort to many past clients because some people don’t know why they feel the way they do and some people are sick of talking about their problems. They simply just want help for their depression.

For those people who feel they do know the cause, we greatly respect the condition you are in and the discomforts you are experiencing, but talking about it over and over can only temporarily make you feel better anyway. Additionally, when you tell your story to a practitioner, you are putting complete trust in that person, hoping they will relate to exactly how you feel. nobody could ever know that, not even the best therapist in the world.

What we do in Affectology is present you with new information about how your mind works in specific ways and how your previous affect learnings greatly influence who you are today. This is aimed to give you new understandings as to why you really feel the way you do now and also give you a greater respect for your subconscious mind with the realisation that it knows what the problem is and how to fix it.

So in a nutshell, for overcoming depression and resolving the cause, you need to hand over responsibility to your subconscious mind, whilst an Affectologist simply “guides you” to do your own healing with the words that are spoken to you.

What Is Affectology?

Affectology is the modern science of understanding the dynamic that really influences our current recognizable emotions and feelings. It is partly, but clearly, supported by the research of Affective Neuroscience which shows that we begin to learn our feeling responses and reactions in our infant days before we can talk, think and analyze things on a conscious level. These early learning’s are encoded into our subconscious mind and then carried forward into adult life as unconscious memory responses.

As adults we are then influenced by unconscious response dynamics that can’t be verbalized (spoken about), however deep down we know that they are there because we feel and experience the results.

Affectology is also the study of how feelings and emotions, no matter how slight, have an influence over our physical and biological selves. Even though the foundational support behind affectology is sound and definite, unfortunately it is not readily accepted by “mainstream views”, as mankind is so engrained with the notion that a person still needs to talk about and analyze their problems to fix them.

The common belief from society and more so professional psychotherapy, that the client needs to “tell their story”, “dredge up the past” or “face their demons” for healing to take place is not the view of Affectologists. We believe that this can often do more harm than good. When it comes to overcoming depression, talking and analysing peoples problems is simply not what we do.

The Cause is a Feeling!

We all experience stressful situations throughout our lives and some people have had a rough childhood. Other people have had a happy youth, but they may experience stressful situations later in life, and there are also others who simply don’t know why they feel the way they do.

At the time of a stressful event (and happy events for that matter), we unconsciously react in an instinctive feeling way. The way we react depends on our individual and unique emotional matrix that was formed in our pre-verbal and pre-thinking days. This important affect learning period spans from about half way through gestation and up until the approximate age of 18 months.

Two people can experience the same stressful event but one of them may ‘perceive’ that particular event as being more stressful than the other person. This in turn, can cause more emotional damage to the person who perceived it worse. They “felt” that the event was worse than the other person because of the way they first learned their individual and unique feeling reactions as infants.

In those early infant times, because we are not yet consciously thinking, we are essentially operating and learning in a feeling way. “Feeling memories” are being encoded into our subconscious which is forming our Feeling Self.

These important affect learnings then help determine how we will react to all other situations in life thereafter. So later in life when we experience events (good and bad), we instantly and unconsciously react “in a feeling way” similar to a learned feeling memory that was encoded in our pre-verbal days. and then, (because of our “analytical” learnings as adults), our conscious mind starts “thinking” of what to do logically.

This is why we ask you not to talk about any discomforts you maybe experiencing, because only your subconscious mind knows about any negative feeling encodings from those preverbal days. Your subconscious-feeling-mind has been around longer than your conscious-thinking-mind and your subconscious knows what the problem is. Nobody can analyse the cause of your problems in a thinking and analytical way. It’s something that can’t accurately be described. It is simply “a feeling”.

We have often heard past clients say before, “I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s just a deep uncomfortable feeling inside of me that I can’t put words to”.


Many past clients have been attracted to the “Privacy” factor of Clinical Affectology. Yes, this method is the opposite approach to many other “talk” therapies, but as mentioned above, many past clients have said that they’re “sick of talking about their problems and some people simply don’t know why they feel the way they do. Why would you want to talk about horrible things like a bad event that may have happened to you or suicidal thoughts if you don’t have to?

So Affectology respects the clients privacy by avoiding any unnecessary analysis of their presenting problems and also respects the clients subconscious by not interfering with what their subconscious already knows how to do. We see this as an imperative of any good therapy.
