My Personal Experience with Counselling

The Day Before My First Session

I remember vividly, the day before my first ever counselling session, I almost cancelled. The uncertainty and fear of opening up about my deepest concerns to a stranger was overwhelming. But, I’m so glad I didn’t give in to my apprehension. I won’t pretend it was all plain sailing. The process was challenging and at times, incredibly painful. There were moments when I questioned my decision and wanted to stop the sessions. But, I kept going, pushing through the emotional discomfort.

Despite these difficulties, counselling had a profoundly positive impact on my life. It helped me view my issues from a fresh perspective, enabling me to cope better. Even now, I book occasional counselling sessions when I navigate through challenging phases in my life. Seeking help is never a sign of weakness. On the contrary, it takes a lot of courage to make that appointment and confront your fears. Counselling can significantly improve your life, helping you find better ways to handle your worries in a more healthy way.
