When self-help isn't helping or isn't helping enough
You’ve tried a number of things, but you still feel bad – or everything just seems too much. You don’t know where to start to do something about the problem and you feel discouraged.
This is when you need to find someone to talk to. So who should it be?
Here are some suggestions:
The University Counselling Service
Counselling may be able to help you to understand the thoughts and feelings which create and maintain anxiety.
It can also help you to find ways of managing the symptoms of anxiety.
If your anxiety is severe and impairs your level of functioning, your GP may prescribe medication or may refer you somewhere to help you to manage the symptoms.
You can use nhs.uk to find your nearest GP or there's the Cripps Health Centre on campus at University Park.
