dear Ally, I'm so sorry that your comment has gone unanswered, however when the posts come in thick and fast, so to speak, they get pushed over to the second page, so they seem to be left alone, please it's only by accident.
When anybody is suffering from any type of depression we are not so concerned on who you actually see, but we want to help you overcome your this illness, plus this other counsellor who you have trust in.
Many professional people all have different ideas on how to help someone, some maybe to help you and agree with you, while others may rub you up the wrong way, the main idea is that you get the attention that suits you.
I personally have no argument in you seeing a hypnotherapist if he/she was able to help you try and get over this hurdle, because different methods work for different people.
We wish that people could always feel this way as you say ' It's important to keep your mind busy with positive things', and yes this is very important, but when you are in the depth of depression this is so hard to do, however now you can do this is certainly a positive way forward.
It's also common when you are in a new or existing relationship to worry that your partner will be having contact with another person, in other words having an affair, because the human mind is not perfect and suspicious even just a little bit.
I hope that your love for your friend is still going along in a strong way. Geoff. x
