Support when you need it
One off sessions to help debrief the emotion when you are leaving your legacy.
There is so Much Emotion
There are so many benefits of recording your life story and reminiscing. It can help with your sense of worth and the impact you have had in this life and know that your story mattered. When you are taking the time to reflect on your life and aim to record your history and for those around you, you are creating a legacy. For many it is comforting to know that your stories will be heard and read for generations.
However, during this time, it is very common for people to feel overwhelmed with the emotion that this process brings up. Our life has many ups and downs, joys and trauma. Undertaking this project, can direct your thoughts to painful experiences, losses in life, situations that you wish were different and thinking about the future, a time when you are no longer alive and it is normal to think about the loss of future plans and connections.
Debrief and Support Sessions
That’s why there is an option to get one on one support from an experienced therapist. Melissah has worked in palliative care and bereavement and has worked with 100s of people facing the end of life and who have reflected on their life and are trying to make sense of it. It is common when people are experiencing a transition in their life , be it facing end of life, relationship change, children, career change, to have feelings of sadness, overwhelm and stress. Having someone who can support you when engaging in a ‘life review’ means that you can process things safely to ensure your emotional well being. We offer one on one sessions with a skilled facilitator who can hold this space with you so that you can process what you are feeling and going through.

Going through a life transition can be emotional. A one off session with an experienced counsellor can help process the feelings and reflect on past experiences. Counselling can help provide strategies to support you through this process.
Most people find having one to three sessions helpful in providing that support and debrief they need. People find that one session can assist with a tune up and quickly get strategies that help with managing difficult emotions.
