Our expert says:
To some extent. Medication can be very useful in dealing with the chemical aspects of Depression, which are real and serious. But one specific variety of psychotherapy / counselling, called CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) has been shown by good research to be at least as effective as the medications, with lasting benefits, and obviously it deals more specifically with aspectslike one's assumptions, habits, and exp[ectations. Nobody can wave a wand and give you back the happy life you had ; but with the aid of a CBT therapist, you yourself can create a happier and sturdier way of life, in which you for instance, might find better love and relationships, but without giving anyone else the power you gave away to this bf, enabling him to devastate you by leaving.
