Should I see my GP aswell as a college counsellor?

I have started seeing a counsellor at college and I have had 2 sessions so far and have 4 more until the holidays when I'm off for the summer. She will probably refer me to CAMHS (for a one off session i believe) by the end of April regarding my issues with bulimia, how my mental health is greatly influenced by my feelings about being trans and other stuff going on.
I am wondering if I should also talk to my GP about mental health stuff and see what they can do or if I should just stick with the college counsellor for now? I told my GP last week about being trans and she knows I see a counsellor at college but that's all that was discussed (as i saw her for other reasons).
Any thoughts??

Do you feel speaking with your GP will help at all? You have to go with how you feel but there is no such thing as too many people around you to support you.

Possibly, seeing as I won't have any place to go to or progress in the system when I'm not at college?
I just wanted to see if it was worth getting other people involved in a sense if it's just using up their time. Thankyou, I appreciate it :) x

Right, okay. Thankyou so much, I will talk to my GP when I go to the doctors tomorrow and see what she says :) She was very supportive thankfully.
Thanks again :)

it's defo worth letting your GP know that you are needing extra support, and defo worth informing him/her of your struggle with bulimia as they will be able to support your physical health too, and bulimia can cause some nasty physical complications which need to be on the radar and monitored if they happen.

Your GP is there to look after your health.
