Can you say what you were going through 4 years ago? Have you worked with a counselor?

If you have had this problem for 4 years, then it sounds like clinical depression.  Have you been taking anti-depressant medication all that time?

I have not heard a diagnosis of depression that is only supposed to last 6 months.  Who told you it was adjustment disorder?  Was it a doctor?  How does the doctors think a counsellor will help?  You say you are stressed.  Has this been going on for all the 4 years.

I do hope the counsellor helps you.  Sorry to ask so many questions.  I am trying to understand what is wrong with you.

Take care.

From Wiki - "Adjustment disorder occurs when an individual is unable to adjust to or cope with a particular stressor, like a major life event. Since people with this disorder normally have symptoms that depressed people do, such as general loss of interest, feelings of hopelessness, and tearfulness, this disorder is also sometimes known as situational depression. Unlike major depression however, the disorder is caused by an outside stressor and generally resolves once the individual is able to adapt to the situation." That means you need counseling and it doesn't have a set time but 6 months may be an estimate given that you work with a counselor.
