    1 Year Ago

    I had counselling for 1 year to help with my depression. I really liked my counsellor and it helped to have someone to talk to. Of course it didn't take any of my problems away but I felt she understood me better than anyone else and I told her basically everything from my past...

    It's Nearly Over.

    No Biggie

    My older half-sister (older by 8 years) suffered from depression as a teen and eventually started to use drugs. My dad struggled with this for a long time, and when I turned 13, he got me a psychologist to "nip things in the bud", basically. I really liked my...

    A Couple of Times

    I was in counseling when I was having panic attacks about getting onto a plane for a trip to Europe in '92.  I got on the plane, so in one sense the counseling succeeded, but it brought out a ton of issues with my folks, since they volunteered to participate, too. Then...

    Is It Worth It?

    I recently started online counselling on Kooth, which seems to be a site I have hoped for for a long time. It's taken a long time to realise I need help, and finding Kooth which means I don't need to face my fears of open counselling, is a huge relief. However, I think I saw...
