Hi everyone. How long would you keep on with counselling? I started last January,swapped to a new counsellor in October(I was training to be a counsellor but couldn't cope). I've carried on seeing this counsellor but I can't really see that I'm getting any better and I've worked out is cost me over a thousand pounds and I really need to watch my money! Yes it does help to talk about stuff I guess but it's the money really.ive tried free counselling through my surgery but they were rubbish. I've tried cbt and it did help but I am constantly challenging everything I think now and it's exhausting. I have pretty severe fibromyalgia that has stopped me working and I'm constantly worrying about money and keep a roof over me and the kids heads. Sometimes it feels it will never end. My doctor has mentioned me seeing a psychiatrist I'm wondering whether I should as counselling doesn't seem to be helping.
