Thank you for introducing me to Rescue Remedy, I used it today for the first time and it worked (just hope it wasn't a fluke!!!!!!).

I've got my first session with a counsellor on Monday and I haven't a clue what to expect, can you give me any insight?

Glad to hear rescue remedy helped.

A counsellor will ask you about events leading up to where you are now, any medical history and essentially try to get to the bottom of your issues and current situation.

Your role is to answer and expand on the topics that come up in your conversations.

Usually on a first meeting they are simply trying to get an over all picture of your situation, and then they usually summarize at the end and suggest a plan of action to carry you forward over the time till you meet again and what they think would be the best way to tackle these issues in the weeks ahead.

Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind.
If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.

Hi Deb

Great news about the Rescue Remedy. Bet you were pleased that it dud work.

I saw a psychotherapist for about 9 months and each week we discussed different issues that I had and she gave me tasks to do. These were things like going on a bus, going shopping, writing down my thoughts, what food I ate, how bad the panic was and I use to get a lot of dreams so she got me to write them down too.

We talked about the past and my childhood and generally chatted about anything that I wanted to to try and understand the panics and conquer them.

It will really help you even if it is just someone to talk to that understands and can help.

Good luck!

Hi Deb

Pleased the rescue remedy helped you. I bought some months ago and carry it in my bag and have one by my bed, but everytime i get anxious i take a diazepam without thinking. So hearing it worked for you will try that as my first option.

Hope it goes well with the counsellor. Only advice i can give on that is what i did and for the first time opened up completely and told her everything as knew she wouldnt jusge me. The more information you can give, the more of a picute they can build and the bigger the picture the more they can help.

Hope it goes well.

Love Sal xxxx

It works for a lot on here.

If it is a placebo and it works then people won't knock it lol.

try it and then you can tell us if it helped you.

Well done for getting off your medication !!

It certainly took the edge off difficult times for me . I used quite a lot of the flower essences and found them good .
