If you are feeling overwhelmed it could be that your emotions are becoming difficult to manage. It may mean that your coping mechanisms and mood are affected. It may mean you are left tired, lonely, stressed, forgetful, suffer from pain such as headaches, have trouble sleeping, feeling anxious or low.

Counselling can help ‘lighten the load’ by expressing and releasing your feelings. By not using energy to suppress or juggle those feelings then it can allow for clearer thinking. We can also consider your expectations of yourself and those others may have of you. It can be helpful to then think about what is realistic to expect from ourselves and others. Consideration can then be given to how this is managed going forward.
