    Hi I've never been on these sorts of sites before, and never seen a therapist or psychologist or anything like that. I feel like i have problems that I've been struggling to solve on my own for a long time, but I feel like seeing a therapist of something won't really do anything, because I know how i can fix, or at least try to fix these problems, but I don't have the will power or motivation to stick to these solutions. I guess I just want to know whether I can use this website for this sort of things, or I should try and get professional help.

    Hi Laura b first welcome and second I agree with everything Ggrand said but if you do find you need the extra help/support then it won’t hurt to seek it out from any type of mental health professional that your gp recommends. But only tip I’d give you is if you need/decide to go down that road is get a list of recommend mh professionals incase any you call and can’t in to see them. As that happened to me but I didn’t want to bother my gp with something so trifle so I went to the “find a professional” section here on the website when I first checked it out before joining and I found the current psychologist I’m now seeing.
