Sunday Cuppa’ with Susanne – Iniquity

Published on February 12, 2013partner By Susanne

Jackie sat fidgeting in her chair, obviously wishing she was anywhere but sitting in the counselling room with me.  She had reluctantly made the appointment and I knew there were deep and painful issues she needed to share. 

After 20 minutes of sidetracking and beating around the bush, she finally let slip one reason for coming to see me: ‘My grandmother died two years ago and, ahhh, I need to find a way to let her go.’ 

Tears come to her eyes and I knew she had stepped across an invisible line to let me into her private world or pain.  …but before I could reflect back to her what I had heard as her need, she quickly changed the subject and put back on her brave face.  Our session closed without her making another appointment but I knew she needed to open that grief and loss box.
