PG Diploma (TA Counselling)
I believe that we all have the capacity to completely turn our lives around, even when believing that life is a living hell.
Please feel free to send me a message or contact me on 07927158528 should you need more information, or if you'd like to hear more about how I work.
It Doesn't Have To Be Like This
Slowly I strive, slowly I thrive,
Slowly I'm walking, not wanting to die.
Are you concerned? Do you know what I'm going through?
A collection of images is what I shall give you.
We are all a potential. Live & let live I say.
But would I still say this if in thoughts I did pay?
I collect my illusions which lie heavy like intrusions,
On a mind so naive filled with fear & confusion.
Thoughts hiding heavy on a guilt ridden child.
Left to discover alls not easy in this world.
Buy me Father, don't you bother
To consult with loving Mother.
Feeling like a legless spider,
Childless mother undercover.
A tickless clock, a silent walk.
Would all be well if I could talk.
Lying deep, subconscious thoughts came out twice
Only to be locked up alone like me,
In my mental vault. Fighting for survival
In a world of black assault.
Craving for love, less anxious for life
As it is who can blame me? Cliched toil & strife.
Forgive me. I'll leave you, but remember this well.
How happy are those who will kiss but not tell???
