Could someone here lead me to tried and tested methods to repair a malfunctioning thought process after depression? I have read through http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thought_disorder. Specifically to correct the ones here - Circumstantiality, Derailment, Echolalia, Flight of ideas, Loss of goal, Perseveration and Pressure of speech.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- ""Self-help" questions are off-topic because you should probably see a medical professional instead of trying to self-diagnose / self-treat. See: Why was my self-help question closed as off-topic?" – Chuck Sherrington, Artem Kaznatcheev, Josh Gitlin
Psychotherapy is not something to be practiced without a licensed professional. It is very easy to cause damage to someone using tried and tested psychotherapy techniques. However from the standpoint of theory Psychodynamics, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Interpersonal Therapy are typically used to treat depression.
