I'm not sure about others and about your feelings and any MH issues but I have to say my counselling is helping , it's hard work and emotionally difficult but it feels like I am moving forward slowly xx

part of counselling is to find what helps you, so if it doesn't work or you can't open up to who you get you can ask for something/someone different if possible

ive went through loads of people in the mental health team, only one or two have really been right for me

Yeah hopefully. Well I need to get in a better state of mind anyway because im going to university in September. I am glad my old college wants to help me before I go.

I just need to find a way to cut the negative people from my life, talk about the issues i have had. I mean even finding this site it is helping

Try to find a counsellor you feel comfortable with, no point trying to deal with issues talking to one you dont trust :hug:

The counsellor has to be a good listener as well, i had one who cared more about his paycheque than helping :sorry:
