Our expert says:
Yes. A form of counselling / psychotherapy, called Cognitive-behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) has been found in some pretty good research, to be about as effective as medications in treating most depressions, and with lasting benefits. In a sense, part of what it does is to help one "get a grip" on life, to change negative habits of thought and behaviour, and control some of those symptoms.
And what you seem to be describing, as it seems to be part of a reaction to a saddening recent break-up and hence loss, may not be Depression as such, but the sort of depressive reaction which would respond especially well to CBT, and will probably not last for long.
