CBT or RET/REBT Worksheets or Own Methods that Work for You

I have struggled with intense anxiety and depression for many years. My counselor who still uses RET (REBT) is helpful. I have read Feeling Good (CBT) along with other books of RET author Albert Ellis...but I have difficulty finding a way that makes sense in disputing my thoughts that I stick with. I am willing to put the time in but I am curious is anyone here is willing to share their own style of doing CBT or RET homework that works for them. I'm not asking for shortcuts but unique ways you may have tweaked either layout or jotting down things. I am open to whatever you might suggest. (For what it is worth, I find Albert Ellis' writing rather strange but understand the philosophy of REBT and CBT.)

CBT Workbook Reccomendations?

What is the best Cognitive Behavioral Therapy workbook (for depression) currently out there? I just did a search on Amazon and came back with an overwhelming number of results, and I trust MeFites more than I trust Amazon reviewers. Any and all suggestions welcome. I'm a complete newb when it comes to CBT.

End in sight for PPD?

New mom to an 11 week old (who was 6 weeks premature). Postpartum depression still spiraling downward. I spent the last 5 weeks convinced the PPD was caused by a lack of support and put a lot of energy into setting up that support network, but it hasn't helped. How long did it take, and what did it take, before you started recovering from your postpartum depression? [more inside]

Am I paying too much for therapy?

I found a CBT doctor here in NYC, Dr. Fader, and he charges $300 per session with no sliding scale. My insurance, United Healthcare, covers 70% after I hit my $500 deductible. So after hitting that I would be paying $90 out of pocket. Is this a typical amount to pay w/insurance? I'm asking because I can always look around, but this doctor is supposed to be very good and if it's a typical price I might as well stay with him. Thoughts?

I have dystemic depression and I'd like to try CBT. I found an in-network doctor but he doesn't push me at all. Im looking for someone who will give me structured exercises and be tough on me. Im tired of just talking about things all the time. I have United Healthcare Insurance and I've found plenty of doctors in the directory, but I have no way of knowing if they are any good. Any ideas?
