Iíve definitely found trying to discuss anxiety or depression with a GP to be quite anxiety inducing and in the end not helpful at all. I feel like you have to know/trust your doc well to get into all that with any real sense that itíll lead to better things otherwise having awkward experiences trying to get help can really put you off trying for long spells or completely.

With a psych I found therapy sessions werenít really helpful to me not because I was too anxious to open up but rather because I didnít really see my reality outside of the session room lining up with what I was being told to tell myself when I was in them, not to mention when it takes suffering through panic attacks to get and from the appointments thereís only so long anyone will put themselves through that without the sense that thereís an improvement over time
