How to Go to Therapy

Want to go to therapy but no idea where to start? In a time when everyone could do with someone to talk to, Stevie and Tessa chat to the totally brilliant Psychology Well-being Practitioner Melissa about how to self-refer through the NHS, how to get the most out of your sessions and to how to stop trying to make your therapist laugh. 


Melissa's recommendations if you're looking for a therapist; (Some of these are private and some are NHS):
