    I don't really wanna go into a long sotry about my life but basically I suffered a parental bereavement in my early teens then in my late teens I had a big change of relationship with my remaining parent who basically chose a new partner of 2 months over me and I had to leave the family home. This is all resolved now and I am very close with this parent. However I still feel all of these things have an impact on my life and relationships now. I am unhappy. I feel like I have anger issues. I may even have alcohol issues, when I get drunk if someone upsets me I can over react massively and say nasty things I don't mean.

    Is there anyone professional I can speak to about this? If I went to a doctor would they help me? I don't think I have an actual mental illness.

    Your GP can refer you to counselling. In fact, I don't think you need to see your GP to get a referal to counselling.

    How do I do it without a GP and is it free on the NHS?
