If you want to try a talking therapy, ask your GP. They will know what’s available locally and can help you decide which treatment is best for you.
Lots of GP surgeries provide counselling or therapy services on the NHS. If counselling or therapy isn’t available at the surgery, your GP may refer you to a local psychological therapies service.
You may also be able to self-refer for counselling or therapy. This means you contact the psychological therapies service directly yourself. You may want to discuss it with your GP first.
Find your local psychological therapies (IAPT) service.
You may need to wait a few weeks before your treatment starts.
