Our expert says:
OK, sounds rather like an anxiety disorder, which responds well to some medications and to CBT style counselling. Antidepressants may help some such symptoms, but not the actual situations which create them, which is why proper counsellin is FAR more effective. It is typical of the extreme short-sightedness of medical aids, that they so readily pay for expensive antidepressants even if they don't work, and not for counselling which most probably will work. Counselling may not necessarily be more expensive, especially as it can be effective within a shorter time-span than the medications
