I started counselling this week, a 6 session slot which I fully expect will mend me completely…..
It was really interesting. I didn’t have to lie on a couch. The counsellor was really nice, friendly and not judgemental (or judgephysical).
After me rambling away for the best part of an hour the counsellor observed that there was a pattern throughout the ramblings around negative self beliefs.
We agreed that we would work on understanding those over the sessions, as they are likely to be the foundations of how I think and how I feel. Described as the spokes of an umbrella supporting the material which keeps the rain off.
I was also recommended a book called the Power of Now. I’d never heard of it before but listened to a you tube interview with the author. I’ve ordered it now. Have a watch of this interview www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRcARFxZweU.
You are not your thoughts, just think about that….
