It is said by those who study these things that we have 70,000 – 90,000 thoughts a day…up to 80% of those are negative and 95+% of them we’ve had before (figures from the NHS).  So if you are thinking that you are really bad at your job, you won’t be hearing this your head just once or twice but repeatedly throughout the day and possibly even into the night and small hours.  It is of no surprise then that with thoughts like this that your mood lowers-a negative spiral of mood lowering leading to more negative thinking and feelings of hopelessness, despair and worthlessness- rather like water going down the plug hole.  When we become aware of this cycle we have the potential to change it.  Counselling with Kim can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings and help you to see that your thoughts are not facts.  Call today for more details, without obligation.
