Leah came to Wellspring earlier this year and here she shares about her counselling journey.
(Client and counsellor name have been changed to maintain confidentiality.)
I decided to access Wellspring’s service when I started experiencing sudden, intermittent bouts of depression. Sometimes, I would feel very tearful, and although it would pass, these bouts continued for about twice a month for a few months. I wasn’t sure if it was the result of being in lockdown. I also knew that I had some issues from my childhood that were constantly on my mind.
The counselling sessions at Wellspring were absolutely excellent. I was relieved that there was a service that I could access. I’d had some counselling many years ago, but I got a much better outcome this time than I had before.
My counsellor reassured me that my thoughts and feelings were normal and that lots of people have these problems. I was able to accept my past and to stop thinking about it all the time. Since my counselling sessions, I feel completely positive. The past is dealt with and it’s no longer on my mind.
I have already told a couple of friends about my great experience at Wellspring. The counselling has been very helpful.
