My First Therapy Session

On Thursday this week, I had my first therapy session.  After finding myself in a vicious cycle of anxiety led thoughts at the beginning of the year, I found myself on a waiting list for psychotherapy.  My appointment date came through a couple of weeks ago, and although I knew the session was looming, it…

The End of the World as we Know it?
