The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which matter regarding your early years or adulthood you explore. An aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It explores your ideas, emotions and relevant events in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover appropriate methods of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

If you practise mindfulness using your breath as an anchor, you may notice how often your mind wanders off into fantasy, thoughts about later that day, tomorrow, next week, something that happened yesterday, or a distressing event 10 years ago. If you gently bring your mind back to your present anchor each time you notice it wandering off, you are practising mindfulness. It doesn't matter how many times you wander off, it is the gentle 'bringing back' to the present that changes the way your mind works. In effect, it builds a calmer, more focused brain. The great thing about mindfulness is that it can be used in conjunction with a number of therapeutic approaches. For instance, the focus on the here and now is useful to help clients leave traumatic pasts behind them. As an integrative therapist, I teach clients techniques to help them calm their anxiety between sessions. This is helpful for clients with traumatic histories as they may not have been helped to self-soothe in healthy ways during their childhoods.
