I might talk to the assistant psychologist on Saturday when she does one to ones but I'm scared

Have you spoken to her before? I know it's scary to be honest but I think it's important.

I've been in her groups before but never had a one to one with her before. I don't even know what I'd say

Do you think it would be easier to just say whatever you feel like at the time, or to try and prepare something?

I've changed my mind I think it's actually a bad idea to talk to her . I can't trust anyone anymore

Given that you don’t feel able to speak to anybody, what support do you think we could give on here?

So do you feel you can talk to her? You said in your post before you couldn’t speak to anybody.

I want to talk to her but it's difficult to on a night shift cause they're busy doing meds and stuff. Still considering talking to the assistant psychologist tomorrow but I'm anxious and also I've found out she's a year younger than me (24) and she is engaged and I just feel like how can someone like that help me or understand when they've got their life together

I think it's important to try to remind yourself that you only know a couple of things about the assistant psychologist. Her having a degree/job and her being engaged don't necessarily mean her life is perfect or together, or that she has never experienced struggles for herself. I know it can be easy to assume someone's life is perfect, but really, many people who go into mental health related fields do so because of personal experience either with their own history or that of family/friends, and to get her degree and the type of job she has, she will have had to demonstrate the ability to work with patients on making changes I'd encourage you not to write her off just because superficially her life looks together. I'd really recommend trying to talk to her - clearly what you have been doing hasn't been working and although you're scared to be honest, it seems like honesty and working on stuff is the only thing that's gonna get you out. Worst case is it doesn't make a difference. It sounds like they're already aware or at least suspect you aren't safe to leave and have no plans to let you do that, so why not try being honest and see if maybe things can get better.

Perhaps her experience means she will be able to make some helpful suggestions. When we get to see how other people negotiate life we have the opportunity to adopt some of their strategies and learn from them.

Might it also be worth remembering that you’re meeting her in a professional capacity? Her job means she’s used to meeting, understanding and helping people in your position.

Maybe give the psychologist a go today? If it is unhelpful you don't have to go back.

Thank you everyone for your replies. I really appreciate them
Thanks for all the encouragement and advice. I'm going to really try but I don't know how to approach her. I just feel scared.

You could try telling her that you're feeling scared to begin with, then she will be aware and will hopefully try and put you at ease.

Turns out she was on her lunch break so got to have quite a long conversation with her which was fairly helpful. I am worried though about what might get passed on and to who.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

Well done for speaking to her. I'm glad you feel like the conversation was helpful. I understand your worries but I am sure you've done the right thing and I hope you can move forward from here. Will you be able to speak to her or someone else another time?
