Are You Feeling It?
Butterfly Tree Counselling
with Dana Webster
Covid-19 fatigue. I've got it bad. You? I am the kind of person who does well with a routine even if it is super-flexible. I like to know there are some things in my day/week/month that I can count on. My touchstones. My reasons for getting out of bed in the morning (as opposed to morphing fully into feline sleep-all-day mode). Every time they change the rules about who, what, where, and when I find myself getting angry.
I know anger is a pretty natural response to this past year and I also know that uncertainty and the anxiety that it produces underlies the anger, as it often does. I try to compensate by setting some core tasks that I can manage regardless of the moving target rules. Daily walks, daily writing, eating properly more times a week than not, communication with our children, being kind to Paul even though he is the closest thing I have to a scapegoat for my moods.
Email Support ~ $25/30 min, $50/60 min
Unfortunately, it looks like April will be in lockdown so in-person sessions are suspended. I know how hard this has been for so many who are reaching out for much-needed support and for whom video conferencing is not a safe or practical option.
To that end, I'd like to offer an email support option. Here's how I see it working: book a 30 or 60-minute session with me in which you send me an email, tell me what's on your mind, and I will respond by addressing the main issue at hand, and with some practical and supportive suggestions on how to cope. If you care to respond and engage in a back and forth, the session is yours so respond away! Sometimes it helps just knowing there is someone who is listening.
Care to give it a try? Book at firstname.lastname@example.org
**Texting is also an option but I would request you download the free privacy texting app Signal on which to converse.
