Feedback of the Month

"I have suffered with anxiety and OCD for most of my adult life, but have always just accepted “ this is how I am”. It was only when a friend recommended Cognitive Behavioural Therapy that I decided I had nothing to lose - I didn’t realise then that it would be one of the best decisions I ever made! CBT is a great way to help overcome anxiety because while Paula taught me the techniques and gave me the tools to tackle my anxiety, ultimately I had to put what I’d learnt into practice - it empowered ME to make the positive changes to my life. Paula helped me to finally see that the way my brain works isn’t “stupid” or something I just have to live with; I can challenge the way I think and improve my life so that I control my anxiety, not the other way round! The CBT was so successful that I made the decision to tackle my fear of flying; with help from Paula and CBT techniques, I have just taken my first flight in 17 years! This was something I never would’ve imagined I could overcome before I started CBT, and so I can truly say CBT has been life-changing for me. I would recommended CBT and Paula to absolutely anyone."

Approach

Always Listen First

Your therapist will offer you an approach tailored to your individual needs. We will provide you with a safe, confidential space in one of our comfortable locations near to you.

Together we will explore how you think and feel about the issues you want to discuss.  This may not change external circumstances or other people, however it can assist you to develop improved coping strategies and manage your problems more effectively. 

You can benefit from our experience - whoever you are and whatever your reason for wanting to improve your outlook.
