I was a little skeptical of the benefits of counseling at first and was pushed into going by my partner, but now I am very happy and relieved that I did. I had no idea how little I really knew my own mind and that I had been carrying around misconceptions about myself and the world, the result of mental scars inflicted at an early age. A weight I never thought possible to lift has been lifted! I am eternally grateful to my counsellor for their skill and compassion in helping me to uncover the reasons I have been unhappy in certain areas. I and my partner can now look forward to a much more positive, happy and less stressful future.
