I work with people ashamed of their feelings and need someone to talk to. They suffer from trauma, depression, and extreme grief. They have lost a part of themselves or someone they really love. They have a lot of outer success but internally, they feel very overwhelmed with life and feel they're drowning. They do not know how to cope anymore and mostly, they think ending their lives would ease or end the pain. They are ashamed of their feelings and they feel very much alone, no one understands them and they don’t have anyone to talk to. They are fed up and they cannot see, hear nor feel anything positive anymore.

I have personal experience with extended COVID lockdowns, general anxiety, grief and pet loss. My specialised counselling training includes helping people with problems associated with reintegration into society after COVID, dealing with the loss of a loved one and over use of alcohol, to compensate for the stress and unhappiness life and throw at us along the way.
Are you needlessly suffering? Feeling like life is just not worth hanging on to? Why suffer when you don't have to? Imagine waking rested, full of life, laughing, free to go wherever you want to, with no irrational fears plaguing you, to feel connected to loved ones. It could be that you are struggling with anxiety. If you have an anxiety disorder, you may feel anxious or fearful in situations where there really is NO threat. All of which can result in you catastrophising, ‘knowing’ that something bad is going to happen. That mind/body connection thing people talk about, is real. What the mind richly imagines the body believes.
