Uncovering Issues and Resolving Them

I was constantly feeling depressed and suffering from social anxiety. Part of the reason was because I was bullied when I was 9 and I felt the pain and loneliness of being ostracised by my peers even those I called friend.

I never felt so helpless. This feeling of helplessness carried for the next 10 years of my life where I was always in constant fear of losing friends so I always tried to please everyone which exhausted my mental and emotional resources leaving me feeling drained at the end of the day.

I decided to seek help last year in 2019. I was skeptical about going to SCC to seek help at first since I was quite afraid it was going to be a waste of time and money but my counselling sessions with Ms Rafeah proved otherwise.

Ms Rafeah was patient and non-judgemental throughout all my sessions with her. She listened with an open mind and heart and helped to uncover even more layers of issues plaguing me. I felt overwhelmed at first but step by step she guided me through and I overcame my negative thoughts and got rid of toxic people in my life who I previously thought were not affecting me at all.

Now I feel as if a dark cloud in my heart was blown away and my worries do not seem impossible to overcome anymore. Thank you Ms Rafeah for bearing my problems with me and tirelessly helping me out throughout the past year.

Powering Up to Face Upcoming Challenges

I may not be 100% there yet, but I certainly feel more empowered to navigate and face upcoming challenges knowing that I am well supported. Thank you Joseph for navigating life challenges with me at my darkest hour.

Finding a Safe Space and Overcoming Unhelpful Thoughts

I came to SCC hoping to find a safe space to share my thoughts and feelings surrounding the difficulties I was experiencing. Rafeah was able to create that safe space for me where I felt comfortable to open up and trust her.

Overcoming a Past Relationship

After the break up, it was even harder to accept reality and how things had turn out leading me to getting disturbed sleep and losing my focus in a lot of things. To be honest, at that moment, crying, feeling helpless, not wanting to accept any help (feeling that I am not even worth helping) and committing suicide was even on my thoughts.

Restoring a Marriage

We had gone from having cold wars and fighting, to being able to have discussion about proper parenting of our daughter and how to address her developmental needs.

Overcoming Anxiety and Depression

I’m happier than I was a couple months ago. I feel less afraid of the constantly-changing world and how I thought I needed to fix everything that was wrong and evil going on all the time, if not I was just wasting my life. I have a lot of gratitude for Rafeah because she sat with me through all of this, and helped guide me towards a lot of insight and revelations about myself.

Looking Forward to Creating The Life I Desire

Now, I have the ability to do things I could never have done previously since my mind is clear without unbearable amounts of repressed grief, anger and extreme feelings of injustice clouding my justice and hampering my ability to focus and prioritize.
