I went to see my GP a few months ago about my anxiety & depression and he referred me to an emotional wellbeing place, and i've been having Interpersonal therapy with a guy who's been amazing, he's sent a letter to my GP recommending I get put on medication to help a little bit. I do feel a bit better because I'm talking about things instead of bottling them up, but my anxiety is basically ruining my life still.
I can barely leave my house without overthinking everything, and even if I do leave my house I'm on edge all the time and worried. I can't have a phone call unless I MAKE myself do it without getting a nervous rash all over me and panicking every second, I also have to be in a room away from everyone and everything so nobody can hear me before I'll even consider making a phonecall. Then this makes me depressed because I get frustrated at the fact my anxiety ruins things and it's just a never ending cycle. Also, I haven't even been "diagnosed" with anything because obviously a therapist can't officially diagnose things and my GP just referred me to see him.
Anyway, back to the point of this thread, I don't know what to do, I don't know whether to keep doing the IPT and see if things get any better or go back to my GP or what, I'm just at the end of my tether now and I don't know what to do. Any help or advice would be useful thanks

See if you could be referred to a psychiatrist? Mine is really nice and has prescribed me some medication called Xanax for anxiety and panic attacks. Do keep going to the IPT though, as you said, you are able to talk about things to him instead of bottling them up.
