All of us have times in our lives when we feel that we’re in a fog and can’t seem to find our way out. This can be especially difficult if you’re usually the one that others rely on. If it’s the first time you’ve felt like this, it can be really confusing – and frightening. You can feel like you don’t know what’s happening to you, or why. For some, it can be an all too familiar pattern. It happens again and again and you start to wonder if it’s all your fault.
Maybe you think it is just the way you are and there is nothing you can do. Or there may have been a specific event that has caused you to feel unable to cope.
Who says that we have to be able to cope all of the time?
Sometimes we just need the time and space to be heard. Sometimes we need help in clarifying our own thoughts. Sometimes the past can simply overtake any chance for a future. Sometimes, even if you’ve already spoken to a doctor and received treatment, medication alone doesn’t solve the problem.
Sometimes you need to seek alternatives and that's where counselling and psychotherapy can help.
