I’ve had a restful break, I hope you have too. It felt really important for me to take some time out to connect with and check back in with myself after such a challenging year.
And we are still being challenged aren’t we? I haven’t heard of a single person who hasn’t felt challenged beyond what they’ve felt they could cope with. These are unprecedented and unimagined times. On the whole we are coping and finding new ways of being resourceful and maybe even finding some positives, if I dare to say that?
It never ceases to amaze me how resourceful human beings can be. I hear incredible stories all the time of people being kind, caring and generous to those who are struggling and unable to cope. Often human beings shine in the most adverse conditions.
I am choosing to focus on the positive here. I know this isn’t the case for some. I urge you to show kindness and offer support, if you are able, to anyone who appears to be being challenged beyond what they are able to cope with.
And if you’re the one really struggling I urge you to reach out for help. Is there someone: a family member, friend or neighbour who you could ask to help you?
Counselling can help. If you’re considering approaching a counsellor it’s important to find one that you feel able to work with, so feel welcome to take them up on their initial offering, whether that’s a brief chat, consultation or introductory session.
There are fewer limitations as sessions are online and so counsellors are experiencing opportunities to work with clients further a field than ever before. If you’d like to enquire about my availability please email:
