We were invited by BBC Stories – Like Minds to take part in a video feature on how to find the therapist for you.
Each Like Minds programme explores different mental health issues, and gathers the public’s thoughts and tips on what helps people cope.
Myira Khan, BACP governor and accredited counsellor with a private practice in Leicestershire, spoke to the BBC for the feature in April.
The programme, broadcast this week, looks at how getting therapy can sometimes feel overwhelming. But if you're going to talk about something very personal to you, does it matter if you trust the person listening?
