All of us humans including myself have grown up with the stigma attached to counselling or as also know attending a shrink. I came to a rocky part of my life where I felt extremely down and unable to cope with life. I was dealing with a very busy work environment while also keeping family life on the right path. After attending my GP who prescribed short term medication to take the edge off I also felt I needed additional help. I attended counselling with Ruth who was extremely helpful. She listened to what I had to say, how I was feeling and after a few sessions I quickly learned that suddenly I was getting a lot of my mind and mentally feeling like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. My view is for anyone who may be feeling this way to please take that first step to the rest of your life, open up your feelings which does really help. Sometimes it’s hard to open up to your true feelings with family and friends who do not completely understand you. Fantastic work Ruth and thank you so much for all your help.
