If you are currently depressed and this is the main problem you’d like help with, then you might want to consider the Behavioural Activation course, as there is strong evidence for this approach and it can help when the symptoms are more severe as well as when they are relatively mild
If you have quite a lot of anxiety alongside your depression, then you might prefer the Back on Track: ACT for Anxiety & Depression course as this deals with both sorts of problems
If you have experienced depression several times in the past, and are currently doing reasonably well, then you might want to consider the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course, as this has been shown to be effective in building resilience so that depression is less likely to come back.
If anxiety is getting between you and the life you want to be leading, then the Back on Track: ACT for Anxiety & Depression course may be best as this has a strong focus on setting goals and learning how to build confidence so that our fears and self-defeating thinking no longer block our way forward.
