Virginia listened to me, connected with my situation and gave me exactly the words I needed to hear in a time of weakness. Those words still remain at the forefront of my mind and my heart, encouraging me to live to my fullest potential. I am thankful for the time we spent together.
I’m so pleased I took the plunge and asked for counselling with Virginia. I felt so stuck in my grief, but didn’t have a clue how to move forward. Virginia listened very carefully to my story, and I was so surprised when she introduced the idea that my “stuckness” was around feelings of being unworthy. She helped me by giving me some homework before our next session. It was hard, and I’m still working on the idea that I am worthy.
I thought I had come for my initial session with Virginia to get a better understanding of my depression. Armed with a notepad, I thought I would get concrete advice. However, Virginia quickly took me on a journey away from my present state of awareness to a new perspective, encompassing my mind, emotions and spiritual self. I hardly took any notes and felt a new world had just opened up for me! It was huge shift in reality, and I’m no longer afraid that I will succumb to an episode of severe depression. Virginia has such a pleasing disposition and a quiet, calm voice, all helping me to relax into being open to these shifts. Thanks again.
Virginia made me feel completely at ease when we first met. Since my burnout, I have experienced a lot of anxiety, which is hard to deal with. Virginia was able to teach me techniques to help to cope with my anxiety on a day-to-day basis.
