I’ve noticed a pattern lately where there seems to be less of a need for ongoing weekly or fortnightly counselling sessions and more a desire for one-off sessions. Perhaps this is due to financial reasons or that the current climate of ever-increasing lockdown restrictions is making it harder to reach out to those beyond support bubbles.
It can be hard to talk about deep, personal issues with those closest to you at the best of times and with the current confinement, the choice of who to speak to has become more limited. It may also be that everyone is trying hard to keep it together and not add to the multitude of overwhelming feelings and emotions that are already present within the home. There can be a worry about the impact blurting out all those feelings and thoughts will have on those around you and the effect it will have on the environment you are in. This can lead to a building up of emotions and thoughts that bubble away inside and need an outlet.
With this in mind I am now offering a one-off session of 90 mins. A space where all the frustrations, challenges, anxieties, fears and overwhelming emotions can be aired with no judgement, no guilt and no shame. Just a chance to unburden and get some much-needed breathing space.
