Personal experiences of counselling and psychotherapy
The best thing I ever did
I was never a believer in counselling, I lived in an emotionally abusive relationship for 20yrs and always believed it was my fault. I was pushed to go to counselling by friends and never believed it would help. But it was the best thing I ever did. My counsellor was amazing, she helped me to work through everything and to discover myself, she never made me feel ashamed. Her understanding of why I had done the things I had done helped me to accept what was wrong and help me to discover how I could move forward by myself, stronger and happier than I had ever been before.
For me counselling was a journey of self discovery. Counselling is definitely the best thing I ever did and I know if I am ever lost again I can pick up the phone and she will be there to help me back on track. To those like me who don’t believe, trust me, when you find the right counsellor with whom you can connect it will be the best decision you ever made. I now see a future I never thought I could have thanks to my counsellor.
