Do I need counselling?
I guess if you are reading this blog then you might not be sure or you are pretty sure but not convinced. Something may have happened to you recently or in the past to start your search online to find someone who might be able to help you.
The incident or event keeps popping up in your thoughts and you can't seem to shake it off.
Or you may have had a relationship breakdown which has really hurt you.
Perhaps your relationships seem to end and you or your partner leave and you have started to notice a pattern. Maybe you always find a partner who is needy, demanding and betrays you or perhaps you tend to be unfaithful or look for excitement outside the relationship.
People decide to come to counselling for all sorts of reasons. They can have relationships problems with partners or with work colleagues, parents or their wider family. Often people find their way to counselling with a deep dissatisfaction with life or have always had a feeling of sadness or hopelessness which may have intensified recently.
"I really can't go on feeling this way for much longer" may have crossed your mind. You may have gone to see your Doctor concerned that you could be depressed as your sleep and appetite have changed and you aren't enjoying life or looking forward to the future.
Often those closest to you have noticed you have changed and tell you so, you may feel annoyed or defensive about being told this and deny you are not yourself.
A loss of some sort may have triggered your feelings of sadness, a bereavement or an upheaval in your life such as children leaving home, retirement, redundancy, chronic illness, divorce or separation.
Perhaps there's a deep feeling of being unfulfilled in life.
