Hi. Since you say he's never had one on one therapy, does that mean he's never seen a psychiatrist?

OK--is he willing to see a psychiatrist and if so where exactly does he live?

He would be willing Bournemouth

OK. We can continue after this if you'd like but it seems to me he definitely needs an individual one-on-one therapist so I suggest he call this facility
