Natural remedy for depression

I suffer from mood swings and frequent tearful episodes where I can't function without losing my temper and getting moody/weepy. I have been on anti depressants for nearly 10 years (post cancer treatment) but recently weaned myself off (came off gradually under GPs guidance).

However, the emotions are returning to weepy and angry episodes but rather than start back on ADs, can anyone recommend a more natural remedy that might help please?

St John's Wort is traditionally meant to be an effective natural antidepressant. Some info here.

Have you been offered any other kind of therapy as an alternative to medication?
