Hi, i think that if your counsellor is saying this, and if your believe you are in depression, then yea i think considering getting further help would be good idea. Did your counsellor talk about what options are available in getting help. Also, do you have further support, like family, friends?
I think that if depression is causing problems in your life, and particularly if your feeling suicidal, then further help would be a good step forward.
PM if you want to talk, hope your ok.
