If you feel you need some help or advice for your situation, please read through this list. It provides contact details of some helpful and friendly organizations.
Counselling Directory [0844 8030 240]
The purpose of the Counselling Directory is to provide the UK with a huge counselling support network. This is a free, confidential service that will hopefully encourage those in distress to seek help. The website also contains a number of sections on emotional disorders (types of distress section) and provides some useful statistics. Every counsellor on the site who has submitted their profile has either sent a copy of their qualifications and insurance cover to us, or is registered with a professional body online with recognised codes of ethics and practice, this way we can be assured of their professionalism.
