Psychotherapy and medicine use are the two basic approaches to treating anxiety disorders and depression. In recent years a number of experiential therapies are emerging that are shown to be fast acting and more effective than basic or cognitive therapies.
Experiential anxiety therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses expressive tools and activities, such as role-playing or acting, props, arts and crafts, music, animal care, guided imagery, or various forms of recreation to re-enact and re-experience emotional situations from past and recent relationships.
The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP™) is one of the latest experiential therapeutic process that successfully resolves the effects of trauma and symptoms such as anxiety and depression, in fact it has been shown to be very effective at reducing your body’s systems down to calm.

Stress is insidious. When stress goes unchecked, its symptoms linger and chip away at both physical and mental health. Many grow used to the constant feeling of stress pressing down on them, while others wear their stress as a badge of honor.
That being said, it’s okay to have some stress. A healthy level of stress pushes people to take care of their responsibilities, without keeping them up at night or damaging their health. The goal isn’t to eliminate all stress, it is to keep stress at levels that are helpful, rather than harmful.
At Stone Wellbeing I provide strategies for managing stress in a healthy way.
What is Stress?
Stress is a feeling of being tense, overwhelmed, worn out, or exhausted. A small amount of stress can be motivating, but too much stress makes even small tasks seem daunting. Symptoms can range from mild (e.g., headaches and stomachaches) to severe (e.g., anxiety and depression).
Acute vs. Chronic Stress
Acute stress is brief but intense. Short-term stressors, such as giving a speech, getting into an argument, or studying for an exam cause acute stress.
Chronic stress, on the other hand, is long-lasting. The symptoms may not be as intense in the moment, but the long-term effects are more severe. Long-term stressors, such as a difficult job, an unhealthy relationship with frequent arguing, or financial difficulties that cause chronic stress.

What treatment is good for depression?
The best treatment for depression is the one that works for you and can depend on the level of severity and cause. If the depression is moderate to severe, then two main treatments are antidepressant medication and psychological therapy. The main aim of treatment with antidepressants is to relieve the symptoms of severe depression. It’s important to determine whether your depression symptoms are due to an underlying medical condition. There are many types of therapy available and the established methods focus on cognitive and behavioural intervention. Other forms of therapy, such as TRTP and internal family systems (IFS), focus on treating the cause which is usually some form of traumatic experience(s).
