Video Transcription

When you’re working with a psychologist or a therapist, you may already have developed a plan with them in terms of things that you could do if you’re feeling very distressed outside of the session. Depending on the level of distress, you might want to seek support from friends or family, or you might want to call one of the helplines out there, like the Samaritans who can offer some listening support. You might want to go and see your GP as well. If your distress is really great and you’re very worried about harming yourself or other people, then you can go to A&E at any time.
