Your doctor can assess your symptoms and talk with you about what might be the best way for you to get treatment.
That might mean taking medication, going to talking therapy or referring you to someone else who has specialist knowledge.
Not everyone is right for you, and it’s important to get the right fit.
The first health professional you see might not be right. If you don’t like their answer, or if you’re not happy after the first session, you don’t have to stay with them.
