Hi all. My line manager asked me to get in touch with our workplace counselling company because my anxiety and depression were impacting badly on my work. Had first appointment yesterday.... Didn't drag up any majorly traumatic experiences or anything, however within a few minutes I suddenly developed a banging headache and felt like I was going to throw up. I was trying to hide it for so long but 40 minutes I had to admit that I wasn't well because i had to resort to head-between-knees-deep-breathing to stop me being sick. The lady said this was quite common during a counselling session as you are finally getting things off your chest. I must say it took me by surprise. Wondered whethe anybody else has experienced these symptoms when talking with a therapist? I wonder if it was just stress/tension as I had gr lost on the way and was 20 minutes late, knew I was going to be late tot collect my daughter etc Xx
