    CBT update

    I mentioned a few weeks back they referred me for CBT they offered a relaxation class I declined. Got a letter today about it they said call to confirm so I called and they took my details said they would call back but never did. I got a letter with it saying it would be a classroom set up 7 sessions it wasn’t group based but it said all chairs face the front? It says the course teaches stress control.

    I asked them if it was group based the person on the phone had little idea. I am disappointed if it is group based and I doubt I would want to go. I was hoping for one to one CBT which is did privately. It shows the lack of resources on my area if it is group based. Money is tight right now so can’t instantly book more private CBT but I may have to consider in a few months going private again. I feel let down by the NHS near me I once did have one to one seasons but when I was 16. It’s very disappointing if I have to spend more money.

    Phil, you just spent a thousand pounds on a holiday. Many people on the forums here don't have this luxury. You're better off working on your mental health and then saving the holidays for when you're more functional.

    I did holidays and CBT before so it’s not the holidays. However I struggle to pay other stuff if I do CBT. Obviously if that’s all the NHS can offer I may have to look at private again.

    Why are you not prepared to give it a try?

    I don’t like discussing my anxiety and ocd in a public group

    Oh this so made me laugh, really, Phil - you've been discussing your OCD and anxiety endlessly in a public group (this one) for 14 years !!!

    ...and maybe they think it might be in your interest to get to know other people, and hear from them, who are in the same situation.
