Re: Not allowed to talk

I work in education and i think that what you describe is an unacceptable response from your Headteacher. Telling someone off for being unwell is completely ridiculous. I would contact your union- perhaps call them while you are off. Do you know what brought back the anxiety? It could be worth revis...

Re: Hugs needed please

Remember they don't know you personally.That was your role and you did your best. They broke the rules and so you acted accordingly. Often these things matter a great deal when they are important to us; which means you worked hard at the role and did a good job (if that makes sense). Hugs and wishes...

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Just a quick one as i want to share a positive with you- both yesterday and today i was starting to feel so low. I didn't really mention it yesterday as i wanted to be positive.

Re: Telephone counselling

Thanks so sad. Don't think i would do online- i would have to minimise myself to the size of a postage stamps to feel comfortable with that! :) I tried to fill in an online application and then for some reason it keeps refusing to upload- maybe it is a sign!!

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Hey there- i am just adjusting back and accepting that it takes some time :roll: Yah to sacking the useless ED team. Rotten tomatoes to the mega Emergy! Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey! Good luck with the mega babysitting task! 4 kids- sounds interesting. I think i would prefer that to the rugby, even...

Telephone counselling

Hi I am curious if anyone has tried counselling over the phone? There are some qualified counsellors who do either Skype or phone call counselling sessions. I am wondering if i should try. I tried counselling a few years back and despite a good relationship with the therapist i really struggled with...

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Hey Em, i am back! Trip was good- anxiety did come with me but i tried to push it and squash it away! Overall it accompanied me on a fair bit of the trip but i didn't let it ruin my break! So yes, lots of laughs and interesting sights. Time to reflect and try and make some plans about my next steps ...
