    Somehow I Fell Apart Within A Few Short Months

    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...

    It's Nearly Over.

    I've had counselling for nearly a year because my insecurities were taking over my life. My last session is the week and I am excited but scared of being 'alone' again.

    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...
