I first went into therapy after a difficult relationship breakdown, my life felt chaotic and out of control. It's taken almost 12 months, but through talking, and sometimes not talking, I've learned so much about how and why things went wrong and will hopefully not make the same mistakes again.
Therapy gives me the time and space to talk about emotions that are difficult to share with other people for fear of upsetting them. I can say what is on my mind without being judged. I learned to manage my anger better by exploring what triggered me, and whilst it was difficult at first to take an honest look at myself and my behaviour, however my therapist never judged me and I started to feel more alive than I had done in a long time as a result.
