    transference gone wrong

    I have been I therapy for the last 6 years and almost from the beginning felt strong feelings for my therapist (shes female and so am I and no I'm not gay). I recognized it as transference from the beginning but didn't feel safe telling her. Shes noticed it somewhat over the years as shes...

    I'm being targetted by a Phiser. I've received bogus emails purporting to be from various organisations asking me to login and check my account as it is in disaray etc. I always check the address of the email to see if it really comes from that organisation or not. Surprise surprise it don't...

    Unsure about how "open" to be at work

    Afternoon all, I'm posting to ask, or get a gauge on how wise it'd be to open up about certain parts of my mental health. I'm recently promoted into a job, my boss is great and supportive of my progression. Work has known for a while I get mad levels of anxiety, and my confidence is in bits...

    when does opening up cross the line?

    I was always that person who'd shut myself out and wouldn't tell anyone anything about me, I thought my feelings didn't matter because I was always told that others had it worst and I just didn't trust people at all Now it feels like I say too much, I've lost all my friends and can feel the...

    The right mindset to fight and overcome depression

    I'm going to throw some information at you which will help in analysing your problem rationally: (try to keep an open mind) Simply acknowledge that emotions are just stupid obstacles and focus on living your life without giving them much importance and you'll see that sadness and feeling down...

    I Think My Friend Is Self Harming, but I'm Not Sure What To Do

    Hi. One of my closer friends was talking to me tonight. She mentioned that she was depressed and I didn't think much of it at first as she is usually pretty humorous and open about her depression/bad days. However, I realized that this was different when she pulled up her sweatshirt sleeve to...

    Hi, new member here

    I wanted to take a moment to say "hi, I'm new!" I'm a 20-something living in London and I have a long history with bipolar disorder, OCD and anxiety. It's taken me literally years to be open about my mental health problems; they started when I was a very young teenager and caused me to alienate...

    Quietening the Mind

    So I thought it would be worthwhile to collect some thoughts about this. It's something we as mental health sufferers have a unique amount of difficulty with, but perhaps people have also developed particular techniques to do with it.

    Shamanic, Mysic, Visionary or Psychotic state?

    i can't get away from the first experience that i had that lead to being sectioned for 4 months on a locked ward. i think it was dealt with & responded to largely very inappropriately, & in a very damaging way. A lot i have seen, studied, researched & read seems to corroborate certain...
