This is through my GP, the last one was private and I organised myself.
Ah, see where you're coming from. In that case assuming you are seeing a different therapist this time then. Maybe with this one you'll have a better experience. I saw a counsellor first of all for my problems (I didn't do that through my doctor, I organised it myself) who didn't turn out to be any help at all. But I found when I got referred to someone else through my GP I found her to be much more helpful than the first person. Maybe the same will happen with you too.
Good luck with everything again.
