When you look back on things, it is amazing sometimes to see how obvious your emotions, feelings and behaviour are to both yourself and to those around you. But at the time, you don’t see it that way and despite people telling you to seek support, you don’t think it will help, -it does. Accessing the counselling services at the epicentre provided me with the skills to look back on how I was feeling and transform my views on my personal and professional life. The end result is that I am a completely different person with a more positive outlook that was able to better recognise and react to the way I was feeling to always seek a positive viewpoint. The end result being that I have been able to move forward out of that ‘rut’ and have never looked back. This has not just been for my own benefit, but also for that of my family and friends.
