      I wish I could have told my counsellor just how much she changed my life. I saw an NHS counselor named Julia for around 6 months and it helped me so much. I was a little sceptical to begin with, but she helped me to draw connections with between my issues and things in my life and even young childhood that I would never have considered to be impacting me today. This allowed me not just to focus on how to prevent my issues affecting me too much, but to fully understand them - making the acceptance and recovery much easier. I cannot state how important it was for me to fully understand my problems - it made me realise that I wasn’t just crazy and I don’t think I could have done this without her. Although I still have my dark days, counselling is something I can’t recommend enough. That being said, there are still some things that I think are extremely important: 1) make sure you have an open mind about what they may help you with, and 2) if you are not completely comfortable with your counsellor - ask to change. I felt like I was awful for preferring a female counsellor but at the end of the day - if you’re not comfortable, they won’t be able to fully help you.
