Hi all. After going to the docs a while ago, and discussing intermittent suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, and a previous 10 years of clinical depression, i was told "well the only option for you is to pay for a private counsellor". My first (and only) session cost me £300, which i had to sell my car to afford. It was a complete waste of money. I have had some long term counseling sessions through a charity (to remain nameless), they they were of no benefit at all. Is there really no other option in the UK?
