Why? Why? Why?

Why? Why? Why?


We all know that life has its ups and downs ...

... We expect that, why wouldn’t it? We’re accustom to the rollercoaster ride, as life throws us it’s curved balls and we bat them back as best we can. We’re keeping on in there, keeping fighting through, keeping our heads above water. That’s just the way it is, right? Life knocks us down and we climb back up and carry on, bruised, but not broken.


Sometimes, we have that unexpected breakthrough!

Sometimes, we actually win one! We hit the mark and come away with the prize! Sometimes, everything just falls into place, unexpectedly, but we grasp it with both hands, maximising the opportunity. We smile and we laugh, with family and friends, as we recount it together. We have a new spring in our step, feel energised and ready for the next win!


But what if it’s not like that?

What if the breakthrough never comes? What if we get knocked down and can’t get back up? What if we’re drowning, too far from the shore to swim?


What if the good times are just a distant memory?

You remember playing as a child, laughing and joking with your friends, everything before you ... hopes, dreams and possibilities. Now, though, it just feels like the rug has been pulled out from beneath your feet! ... all that potential evaporated! Somehow, it just doesn’t seem fair.


As you stare through empty eyes you don’t know how to smile...

... you can’t even remember how to laugh.


If this is you, if you’ve been there, or if you're there now, I have good news for you -

It doesn't have to be this way!


However impossible it looks, to go forward right now, you still can, but maybe it’s time to enlist a little help!

Just like a wounded soldier on the battlefield, you need others to rally around and give you some support right now.
You’ve fought an amazing battle, if it were not for your efforts others would have gone down too!

But, right now, you need others... to rally around you and lift up those weary arms, to share the burden.


Maybe it’s our turn to come alongside you ...

to dress the wounds and to set you back on your feet.

Maybe it’s not so much about ‘why?’, but more about ‘when?’






Daisy to illustrate poem

My Daisy Prayer

My Daisy Prayer

“He loves me.

He loves me not.

He loves me.

He loves me not.”

Lord, You love me.

You don’t ever not love me.

It’s not like a child’s game of picking petals off a daisy.

It’s not that you love me when I’m “good”

and then not love me when I’m “bad”.

You don’t even see me as “good” or “bad”.

You see me as LOVED.

That’s it.

Loved in your goodness.

Cherished in your heart.

There are days I perceive myself

as having been “bad”.

At those times I want to hide.

I see myself doing “bad” things

and don’t know how to stop.

But you don’t see me as “bad”.

You see me as LOVED.

You want to help me.

You know I can’t change myself.

You wrap your arms around me

and tell me I am Yours.

You see your goodness in me

and that is what you celebrate.

I don’t have to hide.

Every day is a good day with you.

Every little thing I CAN do

is a little thing you celebrate.

The rest you are not holding against me.

The rest I need your help with.

I am looking to you.

I don’t know how to change this.

You understand my weakness.

Please can you help me.

“He loves me.

He loves me.

He loves me.

That’s it.”

Bags of bricks


Feeling exhausted, drained, alone, staring through lifeless eyes, crushed?

Does everything seem like an uphill battle?

Do you feel defeated before you even begin?

When did you last laugh, or even smile?

Is life like going uphill while holding two bags of bricks?

Does it really have to be this hard?

Releasing depression!

What you're experiencing doesn’t have to be your 'normal', you can let go of it, you can put down the bags of bricks!

Life has its natural ups and downs. With this often comes painful experiences. We all have different ways to cope when life throws us a curved ball: Sometimes we can face a situation head on and address and overcome it; sometimes we may release emotions, cry or even laugh.

Often, however, it’s not like that - we suppress our emotions - we think it’s how we can continue to function. We still have responsibilities, commitments - we can’t let down our children or those around us. So, we bury our real feelings. We don’t necessarily even know we have done, we just need to push on.

Often we just throw ourselves into our work even harder, pushing down and repressing our feelings still further.

Pushing on though becomes harder, it takes more energy to keep everything suppressed. We find we have less resources than we used to have, but the demands on us are ever-increasing. We may feel irritable fractious, easily say things we don’t really mean, or retreat inside ourselves becoming uncommunicative and isolated. We may just ignore and avoid situations, burying our head in the sand.

Is this how you feel?

It’s understandable that you feel the way you do, that the things you used to be able to enjoy no longer hold the pleasure they once did, that relationships around you may feel strained as you struggle to maintain them.

This is where counselling comes in, to provide you with a safe space in which you can address and work through your repressed feelings. Together the weight can be lifted and even removed. You can make sense of your past feelings, gaining a fresh perspective. Emotions can be re-processed in a gentle and safe way, allowing you the freedom to start to move on and reconnect to positive emotions and life itself.  You can start to live your life to the full, enjoying all it has to offer again.
