I'm more comfortable talking to medics who are older than me ( younger ones feel like I'm discussing things with my son ! ) but of course as we get older, doctors, along with policemen seem to get younger lol.

As far as mental health care is concerned it's even more vital you feel comfortable with the person you're confiding in , so it's not just about qualifications . ... although I would recommend they be registered with their professional body ( just in case of complaint ) . I've had more than one psychologist treat me for depression as the first ones I didn't feel comfortable with. I think you make much better progress if it feels they have empathy for you.
Hi Helen xxx

Thank you so much for your wise suggestions as always I'm so pleased that you have got excellent GPs who understand your medical needs. It must be very reassuring for you to have access to services in your new location. For people like your good self or myself, hospitals/GP surgeries are rather quite important lol It's useful to know that there will be excellent support and services where you are moving to in advance.

I saw a lot older nurse today in my new GP Surgery. She was very nice and much older and she was slightly slower than younger counterparts but there was something really lovely about the way she was. Yes, it does make a world of difference when a service provider can offer such elusive quality such as empathy. Yes, you are so right about the qualification of psychologist. I'm now on the look out for a lot older, wiser psychologist.

Thank you for your advice, Helen xxxxxx
