And that’s the impossible task. Also people really put too much stock into the efficacy of therapy. It truly does nothing for a significant portion of the population.

A pretty rigorous meta analysis of RCT studies looking at psychotherapy recently concluded that therapy is around 70% effective in the treatment of depression.

Its worth a try for basically anyone who is diagnosed with depression, and it is even more likely to be effective when combined with medication. Don’t discourage people from seeking therapy please.
