A place where you can come and anonymously (if you wish) get some advice.
This can be about anything.. Relationships, mental health, friends, any problem that you currently have and need someone to talk to. Not everyone has someone they can confide in, so let me be that person. All your personal information will be kept confidential and I will offer advice to you the best I can. I too have been in a position where I’ve had no one to confide in and know how hard it can be. As always I will respond with your best interests at heart.
I used to love reading the advice pages in magazines when I was a teen, so that’s what inspired me to create this page for my blog.
If you have filled out the form above:
Firstly thank you for reaching out to me. I appreciate your trust and honesty. And well done for taking the first step to overcome your problem. I am by no means a professional counsellor or life coach, but I am however always looking to help people and give advice in an honest and thoughtful way. Sometimes it’s better to get an outsiders view on a situation as I can consider things outside of the perspective that the people close to you can’t always do. I will read all new queries as soon as possible and send you an email when I have got an answer for you.
In the meantime take a look at my new podcast channel ‘Lozza’s Girly Gabble’ where once a week I upload a new podcast full of inspiration tips on different topics. Alternatively view my ‘support’ post.
Q: Dear Lozza, I’m having a tough time with friends at the moment. They never seem to get back to me when I ask them to meet up and I feel like I’m the only one trying to make the effort. I don’t know what to do anymore.
A: Hi Emily! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having problems with your friends at the moment. I’ve been there too and it’s frustrating when you’re the only one who makes plans; but it’s likely that it’s not personal and your friends have just been busy. No excuses, I know.. as it’s so easy to keep in touch, but it’s likely they don’t mean to upset you. Have you tried reaching out to them and telling them how you really feel? They might not realise what they’ve been doing, so if you call them or write a heartfelt message, you can really open up.
Tell them that their lack of communication and effort bothers you, and you want them to reach out to you more; rather than you always chasing them. Once they read your message it might hit them and they’ll realise how their behaviour has been affecting you. Have a good think about what you really want to say, and hit that send button! Good luck! 🙂
