Understanding the Past to make a Positive Future
Why I came for counselling
I came for counselling in the middle of a personal crisis where I was struggling with a lot of negative thoughts. When I started counselling I was trapped in the past. I was struggling with things about myself and others that I love, things that stopped me enjoying the present and stopped me making decisions based on my present life and not on events of the past that I can't change.
How counselling helped
During the time I came to counselling I became more aware of myself and how my way of thinking was affecting my behaviour. By expressing how I was feeling and thinking I was able to become more conscious of what I really wanted and how I wanted to live my life. So I think that my counselling was very helpful. The counsellor was listening to me all the time and giving me feedback during the sessions.
Life after counselling
I can say that now I feel more calm, confident and happy than when I began, and I can deal better with the situations that trigger some of my negatives thoughts and reactions. I think I am a better person now and I can identify better my feelings and what I want to do with them, so I don't waste my time and my life.
