Good hearing from you again Audrey. Everything I relate in the above comments occurred late in life. A big difference from someone just starting out. Ecotherapy sounds good. Physical activity, walking, running. Therapy sessions outdoors. Almost sounds like things are coming full cycle. The first psychotherapy book I read was “Depression and The Body.” The author Al Lowen’s emphasis was the same as EcoT only he called it being grounded in the body. He knew way back that the whole idea of therapy needed a radical upgrade. Sitting on a couch and talking was only 50% of his session. His Bioenergetic exercises adapted from yoga were made to facilitate body and vocal expression and *grounding.* Such things were ridiculed and considered a breech of orthodox professional practice & decorum. Much later I moved away from that and tried the traditional route. The Gestalt therapist I mentioned was good. But that led to the psychopharmacologist MD and anti-psychs. Extended insomnia, voices, working too many hours led to a routine of nasty learned helplessness and compliance (OBEY, comply) with proscribed methods. Compliance is ok up to a point. If it leads to observable psychical and mental progress. Sometimes being sedated is progress when things are really bad. As long as the “side effects” aren’t worse, long lasting and traumatizing. I saw the movie Donny Darko in 2001. Fictional Donny was taking medication for depression. Bad things sometimes happen when messing with the neural matrix. Meanwhile in 2020 another Donny likely hyped on something is making people like me depressed but that’s very much beside the point.
