If you are in need of help, please find a list of charities and helplines below. I have usually seeked therapy through my GP, but I know that the waiting lists can be extremely long, so using one of the helplines below in the meantime can be a great idea. There is always the option of private therapy if you can afford it. The helplines and charities below are all free.

Personally, I have found LifeLine particularly helpful, they were able to set me up with a face to face meeting with a counsellor very quickly, and the counsellor was genuinely amazing. For more specialised therapies however, I have always went down the GP route.

You know what you need, don't wait if you are in distress now - you deserve help.
