So much around us has changed since March 2020, and as time goes on, there doesn’t seem to be much let up. Many of us have found our mental health suffering over this period, and are finding it harder to enjoy our lives as we used to. We might have had more time on our hands, and found ourselves using this time to go over our pasts or our futures. If we’ve had to spend more time on our own, voices from our pasts might have started making themselves heard in our heads. Living within a global pandemic means we may have been forced to confront fears of death, both our own, those close to us, and nameless thousands of others.
Whatever the pandemic has brought to you, talking about it can help. Counselling is a place where you can say the unsayable and show the parts of yourself, both those you are proud of, and the parts you’d rather hide. There is something about having the space to do this that is healing, and can help you make sense of yourself and your life.
