I've just started going to a counsellor (my first session friday just gone). Although I felt better getting things off my chest (after about 10 tearful moments), I still came out wondering what the counsellor can do to actually make me feel better. She didn't say much, and everything she did say was pretty much repeated, eg "I think the underlying anxiety is down to your ex partner". I already know that. What I don't know though, is what I can do to get rid of such horrific feelings.
