The Personal Stuff: My Journey into Empowering Therapy
I started my counselling journey over 11 years ago when I lived in Malaysia after my marriage of 17 years suddenly ended in divorce.
At that time, with what felt like everything collapsing around me, I felt worthless, lost, almost helpless, and this in turn, caused extreme anxiety and stress.
Being in a foreign country with no job also added to my stress and anxiety levels.
Before leaving Malaysia, I had tried to kid myself that I would get back to my best self under my own steam.
But I was struggling.
So after some intervention from a good friend, I reluctantly (at first) sought the help of a wonderful counsellor.
