No clue about the effectiveness of TMS (although I could point you in the direction of some studies for you to read about just that if you like) but welcome anyway.

I went through TMS five years ago and it wasn't super useful or it's hard to tell. At that time, my depression was really bad and TMS was better than every other option. And it might have saved my life. Right now though I am on antidepressants and they seem to work better than TMS. But I am no doctor and we're all different - what works for one doesn't work for the other. If you have been depressed for 30 years, I think there's no harm in trying TMS if you have a psychiatrist who's recommending it to you.

Yes if you could direct me to some studies. I tried researching but no real answers.

I don't know how accessible this is for the average person in the UK? I guess it's not on the NHS.

Okay, here's an overview: Updates on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy for Major Depressive Disorder

If there is anything specific within this that you want to search for, for example "depression", just hold down the ctrl key and press the F key and it'll open up a search box. Then just type in your word to find mentions of it within. Then just go down through the mentions using the arrows; it can save a lot of time.

You can get more here (I've done a filtered search for you from 2010 onwards but you can adjust this) or by using the search box at the top and typing in 'transcranial magnetic stimulation'. transcranial magnetic stimulation - Search Results - PubMed

Try everything. It can do no harm. Have you tried CBT?
