You make an appointment with your GP who will thoroughly assess your situation and decide what the best treatment options are for you. Whether that’s a psychology referral, self help groups, CBT, or medication.

No, you tell them what’s happening that made you make the appointment. You tell them how you feel, how you’ve changed, how it’s affecting your life.
They will probably do a questionnaire with you to get a “score” to analyse how severe the problems are. Then they will talk to you about options.

It's really the doctor's place to decide whether you need medication or if you need some other form of help that you need. As GabiAbi84 has said, just explain to them what made you think you might need antidepressants.

Talk to a psychiatrist because GP's are generally ****ing useless. They'll assess you and you go from there.

If you are going to say "talk to a psychiatrist", you should specify that you mean a private psychiatrist as you can't just see an NHS psychiatrist without being referred in the UK.
