I went, he's name is Gordon I felt straight away comfortable with him in half an hour he seemed to have got out of me one thing from the past (he looks shocked, I'm not) He asked me what I wanted from him I looked at him with a blank expression I wanted to tell him to make the anxiety,depression go away but I know it won't not yet and he can't take it away or reduce it only I can I guess.
I'll be going back in afew weeks but thing is he says he is not a cousellor he runs a 12 week programme to try and prevent these feelings from happening but if I want more long term there is an alternative I think that this would be the best option for me, it's to advanced now but I have to explore areas of my life with these other people....am I ready to do that?
This morning I felt a little stripped because I felt like someone took a part of me away just by him knowing something about my life. I think I have got to sit myself down and think about this carefully.
Anyhow he gave me a few sheets on relaxation teqniques (excuse my spelling of that) and facts on anxiety he claims I'm pretty advanced in the stuff I know because most have not heard of the facts and what anxiety in all it's forms actually is, I thought well I should do I've read the damn psychology book a billion times just to make sure I'm not imagining it. He said I'll tell you this now if you tell me you are about to harm yourself I have no choice but to call Social Services or the Police, Police I said ''Are you serious'' so I thought if I do and I won't tell him what happened the other week I'll keep that one under my belt for my own choice. The last thing I want is this all blowing out of proportion, it's something I just don't need. I told him what difficulties I've been having and stuff like that I felt a little embarrased because I don't know him, it's easier saying stuff on here as you don't know who I am, what I look like, where I live, or my issues and can relate to me because alot of you I'm guessing have been there or still are there??? I also felt I was insulting other people who have worse problems than me when mine are alot to do with the feelings I carry from the past that stops me living the life I want to lead. I don't know guys just got to get myself together cause I'm climbing the walls, somedays I fear for my life. CATCH YOU LATERS!
If anyone is here and they want to talk to me let me know by posting the reply, we may be able to talk more than. 🙂

hi Sophie, going to therapy is great.....just make sure this is the guy you want to talk with and want him to help you.

I opened up with my therapist sooo much, told her things that i thought would make her eyes pop out of her head....but you know something, therapist have heard of everything possible in life....and they are there to help you. I think mine was more with SHAME and i had to tell her about things in my life that i did, and mistakes i have made, and its all out in the open, and not bottled up.

Now, back to you....did you feel comfy with this guy/therapist??? cuz you don't have to go back to him...i had to "screen" thru a few b4 i chose one that i would stick with. And went to see her for almost 2 years on a weekly basis.

I think Sophie the more you talk and the more you get out with any therapist, you free yourself from that pain.

Keep posting!!! (((camer))))

I felt comfortable around him it's just that I don't feel comfortable telling him stuff because I don't know him and considering I was in his presence for less than less than a hour he knows more about how I feel than my own family. I think I'm looking for closure just not sure whether he's the person to do it yet but I'll give him a go. 🙂
Good for you glad that she helped you come to terms with things.
