A good question – how many people feel low, lost, confused and depressed despite having a life that to all intents and purposes looks great?
I worked with a lovely man in 2019, and this is a testimonial he sent me (via my Facebook Page – Emotional Mastery. Read it to see why you might be feeling depressed even though your life is fine.
‘This time last year I was at my lowest point for a very long time.
Aged 51 with a loving fiancée, four healthy kids, a steady job, decent salary and a roof over my head I was absolutely lost. Nothing I could ever do was good enough, I was never going to succeed, how was I going to keep a family supported for the next 20 years (my youngest was not quite 2 at the time, my eldest 19), how could we continue living in our “tiny” maisonette, how did my older two kids really feel about me, what impact had my previous behaviours had on them, especially my 15 year-old daughter…..
So it went on, leading to six months absence from work, medication and walks that I could easily have not returned from.Get the picture?
I couldn’t get any immediate help from the NHS and I really needed someone to make sense of the mess my head was in.
I knew Kim through friends and my partner and we’d spoken before, so I knew that she was someone I could trust to listen and not to judge. After all, what did I really have to be so upset about, right?
I can’t really express what a difference Kim made. Kindness and reassurance just ooze from her. It wasn’t instant, but over a few appointments she shifted my perception through just talking, directing my thinking with some exercises and subtly training my subconscious to go a lot easier on me. We talked about the things that upset me, the aspirations I still had and how I might achieve some of them, and the truth about my character and what it needs to shine.
A year on and really none of those fears have gone away, but they’re in their place – they’re addressed and they’re proportionate. I can see a future that looks positive and I’m more comfortable about who I am and what I need to thrive, and more sure about the fact that I already had so much of it. Thanks Kim ‘
I saw this client during 2019 and facilitated his return to work, plus address his many feelings around who he was, what he did and how much he had, or (in his head) hadn’t achieved. From feeling depressed and lost, I facilitated a powerful transition, to feeling more optimistic about his future. He felt more comfortable with who he was.
