My doctor has been so supportive and understanding regarding my anxiety and depression. Good to have a good dr who has your best interests at heart. Shame I don’t feel like that about my employer.

I completely agree. My doctor has been great, but in the past i have had terrible care from doctors.
Its a lottery it really is.
Are you having trouble at work?

If your doctor has signed you off surely they cannot pressurise you into returning when even the doctor says you are not ready? Is it a big company with a hr department or is it a little company?

It’s a big company, I have a welfare meeting tomorrow but my dr said don’t give any indication of return date as he is happy to support me and issue sick notes.

Thats lucky its a big company although as a big company you are just a number they do tend to stick to employment rules which should work in your favour.
Your doctor sounds very wise and helpful.
Good luck with the meeting tomorrow, let us know how you get on.
Hugs
