I was feeling unhappy for a really long time before finally organising an appointment to see a counsellor.  I had had some bad experiences many years ago and I knew I had not been myself for a very long time.  I began to understand through counselling that I was wearing many masks and trying to numb my pain in a very unhealthy way.  Helen helped me explore and unravel my past.  I really looked forward to my sessions after a while and it was amazing to like myself again
