Hi everyone,
I’ve been having panic attacks and anxiety recently and I wish to get therapy for it but am unsure of the process. Would anyone be able to take me through the process step by step please?

Your best shot is to go and either ask your GP or find a private therapy service somewhere. I'm still in school and I go and see one of the school counsellors and she's amazing, or if you're in uni there should be services on campus.
There are helpline services you can call if you feel in immediate danger, for example, Samaritans (I would give the number but it's not coming up when I type it in lol).
You can always try for mental health services through the NHS, you'd go through your GP and then they'll explain further. If you'd like to go private, you can search up places local to you or go through your GP.
I'd say that you're best off booking an appointment with your GP and you can find the best way forward together. GPs are in the best place to help you

Referal through your doctor is the commonest way but i believe the waiting list is a few miles long so your best bet is to go private (fair warning, its pricey). Some employers/unis etc. offer it though so its worth checking with your uni (if youre a student) or employer to see if they offer it. I got some free sessions a while ago through my work but the long term and more specialised stuff youll generally need a doctors referral or pay through the nose for.
