I had become unclear on a number of things in my life and it left me feeling confused and lost, which was starting to have a negative impact on my home and work life.
I had my views and thoughts as to what might be the causes and the solutions to help but was never really able to move away from the negative feelings or take control of them.
I decided it was better to seek help and advice from a professional than continue to try to convince myself that I had it under control. This was the first positive changing point for me and, after every counselling session, things became clearer and better. Through the sessions, I discovered a lot about myself and soon began to realise that I had missed so many things myself. I needed to have someone help me through this discovery and offer advice and guidance.
I can thankfully say that everything has now been turned around and I feel that all aspects of my life are now heading in a positive direction. I also learnt skills that aid me to deal with future situations that before I would have been overwhelmed with.
I have no doubt in my mind that this was a very positive turning point in my life, that has changed so many things as a result. I suggest that if anyone else can relate to the feelings I described at the start and is asking themselves "should I see a professional?", I strongly encourage you to do just that.
