Everywhere we look during December, Christmas is shown as full of happy family-fun, with laughing people, plenty of festive food and drink, a sparkling tree and glittering presents.
For many of us tho’ life is more challenging and messy. Christmas can be expensive, complicated and stressful, often leading to turning ourselves inside out to bring off the perfect Christmas for others.
It’s a time when our relationships are under extra pressure because families are not only a source of joy but also unimaginable tension. It can also be is a time of heightened sadness, because we’re alone, or remembering better times, or grieving a loved one.
I can help you find your way through. I offer telephone counselling and face2face counselling where you can be honest about what Christmas is really like for you. You don’t even need to leave your home for you to have my professional help and it can help you feel so much better.
