    Have you seen a Psychiatrist?

    Hi to you all 😊
    Has anyone ever seen a psychiatrist for their anxiety/panic? Is this easy to do (for people in the UK) via the NHS?
    Thank you 😊

    lol I saw one in Oz too, and he was useless. When I told him I get bad anxiety symptoms when going outside, he said "look at the trees", and I waited for him to go on, but that was it hahahah.. gave me a good laugh.

    Many of them go into the profession in an effort to heal themselves!

    I had a GP who was a sufferer of both depression and anxiety.
    She was great cause she understood exactly how I was feeling unlike other non sufferers who learn it all from a book.
    She actually had her release papers from a psych hospital on the wall next to her Drs certificate.

    You're unlikely to get to see a psychiatrist on the NHS unless you have a serious mental health issue. A psychiatrist is like a boss level psychotherapist, and is the only one available to prescribe certain medications.

    You're more likely to have antidepressants pushed on you, or hopefully a course of CBT.
