How does counselling work?
In bereavement, for example, we do know that talking is one thing that can make a difference. So why is that? I think that these pictures go some way to describe what happens in the counselling room.
Pooh bear is quite right. It's hard to ask for help. But sometimes we do need to.
I think this reflection on the experience of many people with depression is very moving. Talking therapy is about sharing the burden in the hope of being able to put it down.
I think we often feel that we will be judged by others and have to hide our human-ness. But if we let it, our humanity is what connects us in the deepest and most rewarding ways.
