Heyoo,

I would literally just explain that to your doctor. That you thought you could handle it, and now you can't/you're going through a rough patch and need time to recover and get back on track. I'm sure if he is aware of it already, and you explain the situation to him, he will understand and write the sick note for you. You're allowed to change your mind.

If he has offered one before, why wouldn't he offer one now? don't be afraid to ask, he's a doctor after all and it's his job to look after his patients. Besides, you'll never know unless you try!

Screw up your courage, keep the appointment, explain the situation, and ask the question.
Easier said than done I know, but if that's what you need to do...

Just ask. Given he is aware of your anxiety and he's offered you one before I doubt he'll have any issue with it.
btw, you don't need a note for missing less than 7 days of work. Dunno why you need the note, but just so you know.

Ah. Yeah your GP shouldn't have any issues with it. All they need to do is say you have the thing you have and maybe a little mention of what that means for you. Just tell them you need evidence for the job centre. No big deal.
