How else are we supposed to get anything done?

I used to go to counseling while I was working. I'd take an hour off and go, and then come back. I couldn't really 'get into it' during the sessions, some I needed to be functional right after. I also couldn't really let issues that we dealt with during session hang over me during work, so I had to be distanced from my feelings.

It made progress difficult, but a man's gotta eat you know?

A good therapist will set aside time at the end of your session to return you back to the world safely. Calming exercises and “packaging up” the feelings until you can safely process again later. Look for a trauma based therapist.
