Counselling for Sadness

When do I need counselling for my sadness?

Sadness is a very natural response to with unfavorable circumstances.  It could be a recent break up, a loss of a job, dealing with a difficult situation.  Most of the time, these feelings will fade off when you managed to come to terms with the circumstances.

Facing long periods of sadness can be crippling for both the person as well as those around them.

Sometimes, your friends or family members may advised you to just 'snapped' out of it, or just do things that make you happy.

However, these tend to help for a moment, or sometimes, do not even helped at all.

I try to be "ok" infront of her but I was actually not doing well at all. It affected me, even my relationships with others. I cannot help but feel really sad all the time. My counsellor worked with me to develop new insights that helped alot. I am dealing with it in a more positive way now"

"I discovered my partner of 7 years cheating on me. Even though I broke up with her, i just feel so angry and sad at the same time. My mood is just so low. Even when I work, i was thinking about her and all the things she done all the time. Ms Faith helped me bring some closure to this relationship. My mood has improved, and I can now focus on how I want to move forward."
