Suicidal thoughts & suicide attempts

It may be that you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, and here you can feel assured that

you will be met with compassion, honesty, and understanding.

Gaining a greater understanding of suicide and how it became a solution to your difficulties is vital.

Suicidal thoughts are much more common than most people realise. Its estimated that

at least 5% of the population are experiencing suicidal thoughts in the population at any one time.

In my experience it is a lot more than that, but the stigma and taboo that still exists around suicide,

keeps people from telling others about these thoughts when they have them.

Some people’s thoughts change into detailed planning, into how they are going to

kill themselves, whereas others teeter on the border with ever

increasing phases of overwhelming suicidal thinking.

Some people’s thoughts move into action and attempt suicide, and some complete suicide.

You may be one of these people who has survived a suicide attempt and may be feeling

relieved, happy, angry, sad, numb, confused or any other range of emotions.

What is it that you are wanting to escape from?

Why is it that you feel so detached from this world?

If there was an alternative ‘way out’ from what you are experiencing, would you take it?

However, you answered these questions contact me either by email

or phone and find out if counselling could be for you.
