I'm sorry that you had a bad experience with your new counsellor. I don't think that was right of her to say that to you.
I can understand how this must have felt really demeaning and offensive to you. Given the stage 4 lockdowns you must feel as though your options of freedom and distractions are limited, leaving you to only confront your thoughts and mind.
This can be frightening if you have unwanted thoughts or negative emotions, but I want to assure you that you are not alone. Always feel free to contact us at beyondblue or continue using the forum chat rooms. I recommend during the lockdown restrictions to try a few new activities or hobbies, this will make you feel more liberated and free as well as less imprisoned to your home and mind.
Some activities I recommend and personally enjoy is writing. Sometimes writing can be a very effective method in processing thoughts, emotions and daily events. The second activity is reading self-help books, this is very inspirational but also practical advice for making effective lifestyle changes. The third activity I recommend is trying to get some exercise in where you can, even just walking around the room! This is important for maintaining physical and mental health.
Are there any activities or projects that you are interested? If so, I think this will be a great time to pursue those endeavours. Perhaps this will aid you in feeling less confined.
Hope this helps!
