How I learned to cope with my emotions

When I first came for counselling I was feeling overwhelmed and burned out.  Life seemed like a struggle and had done for a long time.  I came for counselling feeling desperate and needing help to cope better with my work and relationships.

My counsellor took time to really listen to me and this made a big difference in itself.  Meeting weekly with the counsellor gave me something to aim for at times when I was feeling really low. Through talking and reflecting on things both in the sessions and between the sessions I gained greater awareness of my emotions and what can trigger them.  I am more accepting of difficult emotions like feeling anxiety and anger and no longer feel overwhelmed by them.  I am learning the skill of stepping back and reflecting rather than being totally caught up in my worries.   

I continued coming to counselling for about a year and found it very helpful and supportive.  It was very challenging at times but has been worth it.  I took something useful away from every session.  I still find things hard at times but have definitely made progress that I will continue to build on.
