Today’s counselling was different to normal.
I actually felt able to speak about the ‘worst stuff’ without dissociating and I was able to control my emotions.
That is huge for me.
Lots of reasons, mostly about my counsellor/doctor showing me what I needed to see/hear to be able to have the level of trust needed.
I’m still processing this, as I always process everything deeply, and it takes time.
Lots of validating, honest, open dialogue spoken both ways.
Things that surprised me, which showed a side of her that I didn’t know about.
It felt ‘safe’ to talk.
That is huge.
To feel safe to be vulnerable, well that is new territory for me.
