You may be looking for counselling because you are weighed down with depression. Maybe you are going through work related stress that is leaving you feeling down, overwhelmed and wondering if you are in the right job. Or you have been prescribed medication and your doctor has advised you to look for talking therapy as well.
I will spend time getting to know what life is like for you, rather than as ‘a person with depression’. Your low feelings are part of you but I’m curious about more than that, about how all the parts of you fit together. I hope you will feel that I know your story so well that you don’t have to keep starting from the beginning. Maybe you’ve never told anyone what your inner life is really like and it’s a relief to do so. It can be exhausting to keep saying you are ‘fine’, when inside you are not.
