I have just finished CBT and my therapist and GP have referred me for long term therapy for my depression. I am not sure exactly what form the therapy will take, will ask when I see my support worker next week. Has anyone had long term therapy for depression and what does it involve. I would like to hear from someone who has actually been through it , I have been told by the support worker, gp and CBT therapist that it will be tough but worthwhile. CBT was hard to begin with but became easier and has helped me to cope a bit better but I am wondering if delving into the past (I have been told that is what the therapy will entail ) is the way forward.
