Hallo just wonder if psychiatrist is fully in charge as due to see him again which he arranged with me but now my appointment stopped and a cpn he asked to be present did not appear. Trying to get answers and my gp intervening but traumatized by this.

OK Yes the psychiatrist is in full charge of your treatment and he may have you have therapy both with him and with a nurse practitioner but in the end, he's the boss and fully responsible for every aspect of your treatment
