I don't think any of us imagined at the start of this year just how much the life we took for granted could change so completely, yet here we all are, still trying to get our heads around a whole new way of being that keeps changing by the day!
Does that mean that the issues you were already struggling with before Covid-19 have gone away? Unlikely – in fact so many people are now feeling completely overwhelmed and exhausted trying to cope.
Are you the kind of person who usually tells everyone that you're fine but you're not? Do you always put off sorting out your problems, tending to put others before yourself?
Do you put on a happy face but it's like a mask hiding what's really going on for you underneath?
Well, I can guarantee that you are definitely not alone.
So many people have personal problems that family, loved ones and work colleagues can often know nothing about. So many people hide their worries and fears because they don't want to "burden" people, they don't want to "upset" people and they don't want to be judged, especially now that so many people have very different worries to deal with. Perhaps before or because of the virus, the following statements may sound familiar?
- You just want to be happy but your relationships always seem like hard work!
- You're feeling stressed, anxious or even having panic attacks trying to keep pretending you’re ok?
- You’re prone to overthinking, criticise yourself and lack the confidence to do the things you really want?
- You can have a tendency to feel inadequate when comparing yourself to friends, family or colleagues, even though they might look at you and think you have a great job, great family, good life etc?
- Sometimes you feel depressed/low in mood but you don't really know why;
If any of this sounds familiar and you’re exhausted from putting on a brave face all the time, then I may be the Counsellor for you - I've been there, done that and have the proverbial t-shirt. (See About Samantha Lee to get a better idea of what I mean!)
Pretending is draining and it doesn't get us anywhere.
So despite Coronavirus, you can still make this year the year that you drop the Happy Face, stop pretending you're ok and use counselling to work on understanding the issues that are causing you unhappiness.
Online Therapy | Counselling in Southend-on-Sea for Relationship Issues, Stress, Anxiety, Low Confidence, Depression and more
How can Counselling help you?
During your counselling sessions, we will look at what's really going on behind your smile - this alone can be such a relief. Just being able to talk to somebody neutral without fear of upsetting them can be a huge release and being able to say out loud what you're really feeling can be a game changer.
The result? Clarity about how you feel and the confidence to make changes. Together, we will get you back in the driving seat, back in control of your life and where you’re heading once again.
Samantha Lee - Online Therapist | OTI Certified | Counselling Nationwide and in Southend-on-Sea
I am a Counsellor based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex but my online practice means that I can now help clients living across the UK, as well as locally.
I also offer Walk and Talk Therapy in Southend-on-Sea for those who still like to meet in person. My Walk and Talk page is currently under construction so please contact me directly for further details.
I not only help busy working professionals juggling high-pressure jobs with family life, but clients from all walks of life who, for a variety of reasons, may be finding it hard to cope right now.
I work with a wide range of issues from relationship problems to stress and anger issues but I do have a special interest and experience in working with men's mental health problems and helping people living with Domestic Abuse and Anxiety & Panic Attacks.. I offer a free telephone assessment where we can discuss what your are having problems with but in the unusual event that I cannot help with your issue, then I can usually refer you to another Therapist who may specialise in that area..
