Psychologists are accredited professionals, why would they laugh at you?

Anyway, see a GP about your mental health issues. They are your first point of call to accessing services.

Just remember, none of this is your fault.

Are you going to be at a University in the autumn? If so, there will be a counselling service there.

the psychologists i've seen just laugh a lot for some reason... as if i'm telling jokes or something. then they tell me i was just showing off or something lol

Are you planning to go to University? I just think it would help you. When did you sit your A Levels?

I'm wondering whether things would improve if you went to University this year. You may be able to find a good course in Clearing.

One of the reasons for this suggestion is that you would have access to a lot of support at the University.

Re the psychologist whom you mentioned, how did your referral take place?

I am at a loss to know why this psychologist would laugh at you, though. That's not appropriate.

By the way, are you sure that your mother's sentence was 12 months suspended? I wouldn't have said that this was typical of sentencing for cases where a fraud has amounted to £40,000 and the offence was committed by a solicitor.

What did the SRA say?

they didn't do much; there were mitigating circumstances-she was given lowest possible sentence. i'm not sure if struck off i haven't asked

A psychologist would not laugh at you. The things that are happening to your family are serious.

So if you think talking to a psychologist would help and can you get one, don't hesitate to.

your mum was extremely lucky.

Most people would have spent several years in prison for that amount of fraud...

That is so sad. Do you have anyone in your family that you could speak to? Ask your GP to refer you to a counsellor if you need help. Are you able to speak to your mum? The helplines that are suggested above might help you as a starting point.

Awe bless, for sure you'd get some sort of mitigating circumstance, that sounds very difficult and stressful for anyone to handle. It's good you're so open and willing to get help x
