  • Is there a Cure for Depression?  Read here. Depression is very often poorly understood. There are 6 kinds of depression we identify at Wisdom Counselling / Living Wisdom, and only one kind is a bio-chemical and most likely not the most common cause. The other five types of depression are volitional, or life issues not being faced well. Are you depressed or know someone who is, and do not know that if your / their depression is non bio-chemical, then it can be cured with good counselling?. See full details here
