Bouncing back from Depression and Anxiety

I was going through an extremely difficult phase in my life. On a personal note, I had just gone through an awful break up that had left me feeling anxious, guilty, worthless and depressed for months. I had troubles sleeping, troubles functioning in general with thoughts about the relationship constantly entrapping my mind. I could not escape. I was angry, bitter and in pain all the time. I needed a change and I sought help from a counsellor at SCC.

From the moment I spoke with my counsellor, he had such a calming effect. He took his time in understanding the full extent of my problems and then began working with me internally to build myself back up. It was a difficult journey and there were times I felt like giving up but with his guidance and strategies, I slowly started seeing results. I was less on edge, less depressed, less anxious and eventually was able to enjoy life a little bit more again. That is the greatest blessing he has given me – to be myself once again. He identified internal issues that were long held and began identifying the crux of the problem. It allowed me to see myself in a different light and to stop the cycle of self blame.

Getting help is never easy. Admitting that you need help is just as difficult a process. However, I urge anyone who feels like they need to find a bit of light in their lives to take that step to get help. My counsellor genuinely cares and this isn’t just a job for him, he is so invested in his clients and has helped me in ways that I would never have imagined. I am eternally grateful to this truly kind and giving human being.
