Given your symptoms you could be experiencing a neurotic type of depression. Anxiety episodes can also be present in neurotic depression although depressive thoughts are still dominant. Good for you that you are going to psychotherapy. Antidepressant drugs like those from the group of SSRI can also be useful.
