I did counseling along with taking anti-depressants and I thought it was great. I was very comfortable with my counselor and she was great. I went once a week - same day and time each week. It was a good way for me to vent about the past week and get things off my chest without judgement. No one was telling me I was wrong for feeling how I felt or anything like that. If I was having a problem and was trying to work through it, whether it was an issue just emotionally or I was having problems with someone (at that point it was with my dh - I was extremely sick and he thought I was exaggerating and said it was all in my head. 10 months and many many tests later I was diagnosed with a extremely rare infection) My counselor helped me work through it.
Honestly my counselor did so much for me.
