Has anyone on here been through either of these for depression?

Yes, I've had CBT and I found it didn't help. I have BPD aswell as depression though. I'm in desperate need of long term councelling, but it's not available on the NHS in my area.

I've had both. What would you like to know?

I'd be interested to hear any experiences too. I've been advised to have CBT for anxiety after being involved in a RTA 3.5 years ago.

I had CBT a few years ago, It worked well for me, much better than the drugs ever did.
It's about helping you break down what the root cause of your issues are and being able to deal with things a little bit at a time to improve the situation. It wasn't a cure all but I managed to resolve 2 major issues that were bringing me down, which was good enough for me!

Sorry this has taken me a while to come back to, very busy weekend!
So I am currently going through three different types of counselling - online (which to be honest is ok, but a bit patronising) CBT (waiting for my start date but will be doing this in a group format and it will be around anxiety/perception) and then one to one therapy.
It scares the life out of me going to talk to the group, I am wondering what format it will take and already looking inwardly for excuses not to attend. I know I need help, I am literally out of control on many levels and I need to get a grip but this is probably the hardest thing I will have to do.
The one to one therapy I find slightly less worrying although still anxious, I worry that I am going to make things worse but keep dragging it all up?
Maybe I am just a lost cause!
