Ortrud explains how, despite being reluctant at first, counselling has helped her.
Though I was a bit apprehensive before the first session, the counsellor was very kind and understanding. My only hope was that she would help me to work through everything and show me ways how to empty, or at least order, my mental wastepaper basket. She has helped me process a lot of difficult memories and my mental health has certainly improved. If I had not had counselling, I would have been in a very dark place during lockdown. I strongly recommend counselling. It will really help you.”
