Hello from Cambs

Hello there!

I'm from Cambridgeshire & a long time anxiety & depression sufferer. I'm 31 now, still live with my folks (with the excuse of "saving for a deposit") and am employed in the computer graphics sector.

I've had anxiety/depression since I was...17 or so. Started with panic attacks & this eventually lead to depression when I was about 20 or so.

I've got progressively better at handling panic attacks to the point where they hardly ever occured, but just recently depression has reared its ugly head again. Woke up one morning & it's like a switch, boom, back again. Prior to this I had had an excellent year, which makes it feel all that much worse.

So I'm here seeking help. A problem I thought I had under control, it turns out, I had not. So I want to try & sort this out.

I am particularly interested in CBT (I am already taking Venlafaxine (Effexor XL) & have done for many years) - but I am not terribly good at self motivating, so think I should see a professional.

Can anyone recommend one in the Cambs area, or suggest where I might get a recommendation?

Thanks for your time!
