Depression - Counselling, what's it all about really?
on 1 June 2013
Had depression for some years now, sadly, just had another 'dark cloud' hang over me for a while. However, thanks to some excellent counselling I am feeling so much better. My counsellor advised it may be of some benefit to obtain this book from the local library, tried but they had a long waiting list.
Ordered form Amazon yesterday, sat and read it earlier today, only circa 150 pages.
If you think you are depressed or someone you know and care about may be depressed, this is an excellent way of explaining what counselling can do and what people can actually do for themselves.
It is presented in a totally uncomplicated way, set amongst the classic tale 'Wind in the Willows' that most people are familiar with, not to worry if you are not, it works with or without previous knowledge.
It provides a really easy way to recognise both a person suffering from depression (in this case, myself) and their friends and close family describing how they can react to someone close becoming unwell.
I will continually recommend this book to any and all depressives out there,what do you have to lose within it's 150 pages it may enlighten, educate and enable you to start on that road to recovery, get well soon and I hope you find happiness.
