I had talking therapy with Bromley Working for Wellbeing as advertised in local library stating it could help with being in work and stressed etc.
I was feeling really low and have suffered depression before and engaged in this. I spoke to someone who referred me to Social Services without telling me so this came as a complete shock when a Social Worker turned up at the door while I was at work and was shouting at my children asking to speak to me from outside my property as they looked out of the window. She then asked to speak to my child's dad - he left me whilst pregnant. This was terribly traumatic. Even worse is that the talking counsellor cancelled our appointment and referred me to Stepping Stones as my problems were apparently too severe for Bromley Working for Wellbeing. Stepping Stones told me I did not fit their criteria at all. The talking counsellor also informed Social Services that she had spoken to my family GP and that the GP had said I was "alcohol dependent and suffering serious thought disorder". My GP did not say that. I want to know why I am not allowed to see this report as because of a result of this my family was traumatised and had to endure social workers visiting my home with my teenager there.
