So I had my first session yesterday, it went OK.
Didn’t really gain anything from it as it was just the first session but I left feeling like I had managed to get stuff off my chest to a professional, which stimulated a good mood.
I’ll be seeing her again next week and then on a fortnightly basis until the money runs out. She talked about one to one CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) techniques that she would like to try on me. I explained that I had tried CBT in the past and it was absolute wank, but I’m willing to give it another go since this time it will be with an actual person instead of ticking boxes on a form or website (avoid a website called MOODJUICE like the plague unless you want your intelligence insulted).
I was as open and candid as I could be with her. I spoke of the depression, the drugs, my disillusionment with the world, everything really. I felt comfortable talking to her so it’s definitely something I want to proceed with. Well, at the moment I do.
So yeah, it was good. We’ll see how long that lasts eh?
