I am now 35 years old, and I started counselling sessions just over a year ago. I am now starting to let go of all the past hurts and secrets that I have never shared with anyone. I was abused by three of my own family members and no-one stopped the abuse. Emotionally, I have never had any one offer me support, and this has led to me not being able to have a relationship or cope with others who have expressed interest in me. Through opening up in counselling I have let go of my past hurts and am now dealing with them safely. I recommend counselling as the way to help move on with any trauma in life, and it's finally letting me live the life I should have had.
