With depression I often find that people have reason to be depressed yet seek to get on with their lives too soon. So I help them to "honor" their depression. At the same time, I do not believe it helpful to wait until the depression is over before coaching a client back to living a satisfying life. My approach in the long run is to help the client return to a satisfying life so that the depression will disappear. Also, with mild depression, physical exercise is often very helpful; it produces endorphins. Exercise with a partner is especially helpful.
