How long have you had these symptoms?

You mentioned that you have scary images - What type of images?

Are you taking any medications? Any drugs? Any alcohol?

I'm sure you understand that it is not possible to make a diagnosis over the internet - but I would agree with you that the symptoms that you describe are more than just a mild case of "anxiety".

I do believe that you urgently need to be evaluated by a psychiatrist. The best treatment approach (counseling and/or medication) would be determined after a comprehensive evaluation.

If you have active thoughts of harming yourself or someone else (you mentioned your little girl), you should immediately go to the closes A&E Department for an emergency evaluation.

In that case you need to speak with your GP about getting referred to a psychiatrist. Some of the symptoms that you discuss are suggestive of a more serious mental health problem that may need medication.

Expert:  FamilyPhysician replied 7 years ago.
There are a number of "mental health professionals" including psychiatrists (physicians who have specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems), psychologists (non-physicians who diagnose and treat mental health problems by cognitive therapy - talking/counseling), and other types of counselors / nurses.
