Retired and widowed, Sandra was 60 when she started to experience feelings of stress, anxiety, depression and anger. Left to her own devices, she could not cope with these emotions. Eventually, she decided to seek professional help, where she found REACH Counselling.
With the help from her counsellor, Sandra was able to address her deep-seated grievances which stemmed from the past trauma, loneliness, and turmoil that overcame her after her late husband passed on. She also learned how to identify her triggers and regulate her emotions better.
Her counsellor is extremely delighted in her development in self-awareness, with Sandra acknowledging her internal experiences that have snowballed since she was married. Consequently, Sandra feels validated, and she is now more relaxed and restored after gaining her much-needed closure.
