I know I really need some sort of help, but I have a few questions before I do anything... 1) How do you go about getting a therapist? 2) Do you have to pay? (Can you get it on the NHS? I presume you'd need to wait a while on a waiting list) 3) Do you need to tell your employer you're seeing a therapist? 4) Does it go on your medical records? 5) If you decide to take your own life while you're seeing a therapist or after you've been to your sessions will everything come out of the can? (I ask, because there's some things I'd like to talk about which I have told very few people and don't want my family knowing). I'm in work at the moment, and I really don't want to be put on the sick or anything like that. Would this be out of my control? I mean, if I fess up to how depressed I feel will they tell me I need to go on the sick, even though work is one of very few things that's keeping me going. If anyone could answer, I'd appreciate it.
