When clients are stressed or depressed medication may assist in helping the client to cope initially.

However long term changes have to be made in the clients life to ensure a full recovery.

Why were they forced to seek medication in the first place?

Why have they become depressed/ stresses?

These underlying issues need to be addressed in order for the client to fully recover and understand why they became ill n the first place.

This is where one to one counselling explores those issues and lifestyles that can then be readdressed.

Brave people enter counselling, as they are saying I want a better life and are committed to change.
