As the nature of depression has become more widely understood, there have been more and more treatments developed which can be usefully applied to help aid those who suffer from the condition. Over the last seventy or so years, a significant amount of time has been devoted to identifying the ways in which Colour Therapy might be used as a means to complement other therapies or stand alone as a means of combatting depression. Perhaps less known than Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or the use of antidepressants, Colour Therapy has received positive feedback from participants who have used it in order to tackle their depression. As the name suggests, Colour Therapy exposes users to a variety of shades and tones which are believed to modulate their mood. Though typically carried out by a trained specialist at regular intervals (sessions can take place as regularly as daily or as far apart as monthly) Colour Therapy can also be carried out in the comfort of the participant’s home providing that all of the necessary equipment has been acquired and properly installed. Whilst extensive data is yet to confirm the effectiveness of Colour Therapy, participants have reported that their mood has improved upon completion, and, unlike medications, this form of therapy does not present any known side effects.
