As I said the last time this message was posted, it's important to discuss this with his treating doc, as maybe a different antidepressant might suit him better - and drugs alone are rarely the best solution. Counselling of the CBT form ( and SADAG, number on this page ) could help you find someone providing this, can help him revise his unhelpfully negative habits of thought. If is practical, active, and gets HIM to be actively involved in finding and testing solutions.
I am not convinced that any other variety of counselling would help ( none has the quantity of good research showing efficacy which CBT has ) ; and am sceptical about Life Coaches generally, as their actual training and skills ( if any ) seem unreliable. I'm sure there are some good guys out there, and also others whose ability to be genuinely helpful must be in doubt.
