With my lifelong history of depression/anxiety, I need regular counselling to help me to function. My sessions with my psychologist give me 'tools' to carry through my life, to deal with day to day functioning. I have a referral from my GP for five visits but lately this has been compressed into a period of three months out of the year. This makes me anxious. When I feel well I don't want to be feeling I have to use up my visits. If a more flexible period of time were available, I would be able to enjoy my times of confidence and have the session to fall back on as I need them. If I am left without further sessions because the three months is up, what do I do when I am desperate for help? I think the sessions should be spaced over six months. Most people with depression continue to need help. More sessions should be available as needed.
