If you feel that you would like to access talking therapies the important first step would often be to make an appointment with your GP or Health Care professional. You can also self-referr to all of the above providers.
When you attend an appointment with your GP it is important that you let them know how you are feeling. People will often visit their GP if they are ill, or have a problem with their physical health and will find it easy to tell their GP about this. But it can often be difficult to talk about problems that you can’t physically see, such as anxiety or depression.
Your GP is just as interested in how you are feeling regarding your mood and is there to help.
If you think you’ll find it difficult to talk to your GP about your problems the GP Ice-breaker below may be helpful.
If you are not currently registered with a GP the following link may be useful:
