    Expect lots of questions, some more personal than others, but you must be honest lieing or bending the truth will falsify their thoughts in your best treatment. Br open for discussion and know their questions aren't trying to make you feel worse or uncomfortable but to try understand your thought methods better. They'll start off just trying to get to know you and then dig deeper. But don't worry. Not as bad as you think!

    Hi Richard

    so have I! My appointment is on the 6th so hopefully someone here will respond long before then! I will tell you how it goes if my appointment is before yours ♥

    I did get a phone call from the assessment team, who asked quite a lot of background info. So you may find you get a call too, prior to your appointment.

    God bless xx
