Talking therapy made a huge difference to how I was coping in my life.
My therapist was brilliant - I felt an instant rapport with her.
I think the main benefit to me was that for the first time in a long while I was validated as a human being and felt that I was perfectly entitled to have the feelings I did about the circumstances of my life. I was not a bad person. This alone began to lift my depression.
Also, I didn't really have much support elsewhere, it was a huge comfort to me to know I had this time every week when somebody was willing to listen to me and try and help me resolve/improve my problems. The only negative is the length of time I had to wait for therapy.
PS my therapist was Krystyna.
