I didn’t want counselling, I didn’t need it, yes some bad things had happened but I had a solid marriage and supportive friends. However, the consultant I was seeing at the time for balance issues pretty much told me I had to go.
Even after the first few visits I was still sceptical.
Then one visit I realised that was I was doing was thinking out loud and I was surprised by what I had to say. I had never been able to vocalise these feelings before. Sinthia never pushed me or judged me, but listened to what I had to say and offered some insights.
The problems don’t go away, but they do become more manageable and understandable. It’s also given my husband and friends a break from listening to me melt down!
