Watch: "I thought therapy would be like in the movies"

Before he came to therapy Amedeo was experiencing low mood made worse by the pressures of caring responsibilities and adjusting to retirement.

But he was reluctant to have therapy because of his pre-conceptions about what it would be like. He thought it would involve lying on a couch, like you see in the movies and in films, but he was pleasantly surprised when he discovered that it wasn't like that at all.

Now he is using his experiences to encourage others to accept that they may need help and come forward and ask for the support they need.
