What does depression treatment involve?
Depression treatment involves talking to a trained depression counsellor about what is bothering you. Together with your counsellor you’ll identify what the issues are at the root cause of your depression. You’ll also experiment with the different techniques and activities that have proved to work for depression. Usually at least one or a combination of these will help lift the fog and get you started in the right direction again.

Anxiety and Depression, are they linked?
Anxiety is often linked to depression. It’s important that both conditions are treated at the same time.
Your counsellor should be trained to deal with both anxiety and depression and after an initial assessment (and with your consent) will work with you to tackle both issues at the same time.
Will I get better?
Yes, while there is no absolute guarantee, the majority of clients do get better over time. Although it may seem impossible now, a brighter future lies ahead for you.
Should I take medication?
For severe depression medication can be a suitable thing to try. You will need to discuss this with a clinical psychologist or your local GP. Different anti-depressants work differently with different people, so you may need to experiment with a few to find one that works for you.
It may be advisable to seek out counselling at the same time so the root cause of your depression can be found and got rid of. If you are considering stopping anti-depressants it is worth while making sure you have the necessary social support in place either through friends and family or through a professional counsellor.
