Our expert says:
Generally, you seem to be describing a fairly typical depression, with a good initial response to treatment. Usually medication that starts working doesnt stop working, but your psychiatrist could do a useful re-assessment of this. I believe that a psychologist can be useful, but not much if they're just using a wishy-washy chat - where there is good evidence of effectiveness, it's for Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ( a specific form of counselling ) which can be much more efficient. Check how your psychologist is working, and maybe the psychiatrist can recommend someone using a modern and effective method like CBT.
