Hi everyone, had my first counselling session today, couldn’t get my words out properly, he said I’m stuck in the guilt/denial stage, said the usual things of nothing would of changed had I been there, I couldn’t of done anything more than I did, have to try self care, asking what activities I do, i said none, I was always with my mick so we did things together! What am I meant to do without him, I can’t even think that far ahead yet! next one is 3 weeks
Same here, we did everything together so now a bit lost having to do it alone - so lost and so heartbroken .
Hope you can say more in your second session
I had 18 counselling sessions and it really helped me especially towards mid way through receiving more input from the counsellor once she got to know more about me & my angel.
Best wishes x
@Angel1309 thankyou, I didn’t know what to say really and only had an hour, went slightly over because of me rambling on about what it should of could of, so hopefully next time I can be more calmer, hoping it helps eventually, sometimes just takes a stranger to hear what we’re saying to change how we think and feel thankyou
You’re very welcome we are all here to share and support each other always,
so please keep on sharing
I used to just let it all out when I saw my counsellor totally got everything off my chest and she was responding so kindly. Our sessions were often over-run too and every week I was looking forward to the next session as there were so many things I wanted to get off my chest. I talked about my angel so much I could have sworn the counsellor knew him so well.
I personally think it is good to let it all out to a (professional) stranger, who neither know us or our love ones so the feed back we get is the non-bias one.
Please take good care xx
