"I now see the positives where I only saw darkness"

About: Hounslow IAPT

(as a service user),

I started my therapy journey a few years ago however I never completed as I did not feel motivated enough, so the same cycle continued. This all changed when I had therapy with my therapist Miss Kumar at the Hounslow IAPT service for six sessions in Feltham. At first I did not know how CBT would help but I was able to stay motivated with her help. She encouraged me with the homework tasks even when I found it hard to do at first. She helped me to recognise the positives in my life when I first only saw darkness. I am now much more active, I feel healthy and happy. This is a great service and I would recommend.

Dear MZ256

We are so pleased to read your feedback on your sessions with Ms Kumar - I will let her know about your kind comments. Ms Kumar reflects the skills and strengths within our team, and I'm glad you benefited from this during your sessions.

Your experience demonstrates the power of brief interventions and Guided Self-help. Clearly, you have worked really hard in your sessions and taken great steps to make use of the therapeutic skills that you learnt, which is evidence of your ability to become your own therapist.

I wish you all the best for the future.
