I managed to locate free Counselling today,



I have felt really off balance lately and was unable to keep my appointments due to feeling a little worried. I will run out of medication at the weekend and they will not prescribe unless they see me. I have now made a GP appointment next week. I have felt so worthless and felt that any meetings would reinforce these feelings and when unwell it gets oh so complicated. :low:

Today I came across a Counselling service that is totally independent and used to be part of MIND. It is run by volunteers and they only require a donation. It is also not time limited. Not too far to travel either. A possible 6 week waiting list so not too bad although if I start to feel well it may change things but I will try not to cancel.

There are so many Counsellors and Therapists but the majority is not affordable to me.

I'm pleased you've managed to locate some free counselling.
It's certainly not easy to come by and a lot of private counsellors are very expensive. I'm quite lucky that my counsellor offers low-income slots.

When are you due to see your GP? I hope the appointment goes well for you.
