    Hi there,

    I've been having issues for the past few years and I think it's time to admit I can't man up and seek advice. I think I just need a chat with a professional. Anyway, I'm based in Edinburgh and I'm trying to choose a therapist but have no idea how to do it. It's easy enough to do a google search but I'd rather hear people's opinions from visiting therapists. I'm just a bit worried opening to a stranger so I'd rather have some assurance of their competence.

    I don't want to ask people around me because this is a very personal thing and I'm not sure how they'll react.

    Any suggestions or should I just pick a therapist and see how it goes?


    Have you considered going to your GP first and then maybe you could get referred to someone on the NHS rather than paying the sometimes quite expensive private costs to see someone? Might work out better in the long run. GPs are used to this sort of thing so they should be able to help with any problems that you might have.
