I decided I needed to see someone and found a lady on the Counselling Directory website. As a live-in-carer I never managed the time to look after myself. I realised I was very low and made the appointment. I connected with my counsellor within five minutes and she has done wonders for me. I had a huge sense of guilt over a bereavement that happened 23 years ago and had been carrying it ever since, yet this lady gently guided me through the process of seeing that what happened was not my fault. Such a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. She has also helped with other issues and although our time together is drawing to a close, not by choice but circumstances, I will never forget what she did and what she taught me. I will take it with me, back home to South Africa. I would recommend anyone to talk about it, whatever it is, with a therapist that suits you.
