Rising above depression

I was once a very cheerful and talkative person when I was young. Things changed when I was 17 where I was bullied and all my friends that were once close to me left me for their own selfish reasons. I was distraught and irritated of what happened to me that I sunk into a lifetime of depression. I became a person of low self-esteem and had an inferiority complex. However, all these changed when a relative of mine noticed the drastic changes in me and she recommended SCC to help me cope with my depression and all the issues that I had been facing.

Hence, I decided to seek counselling help from SCC. When I first met my counsellor, Mr Joseph Rajagopal, I was very reserved and shy when interacting with him for the first time. But as the weeks passed, I started to look forward in seeing him. He has taught me so many things for the past one year like emotional intelligence, how to deal with social anxiety, how to not live in the past and how to think positively in life by doing it step by step. And because of these I began to be less anxious around other people and started doing better in my exams.

He even tells me about his life experiences during our counselling sessions and puts himself into my shoes advising me what I should do. I am really grateful to have Mr Joseph as my counsellor right now. If not for him, I would probably be a sad and angry person right now.

Thank you Mr Joseph for all those sessions we had together and I really hope that he will be able to help other people to overcome their problems and help them prepare for the future.
