Felt very down with low mood and a lot of anxiety. Thoughts were running through my head and dominating how I thought and the things that I did. Was missing out on events with friends and just generally feeling awful. I hated myself and was at an all time low.
I was referenced to a Mental Health service through my GP and was on the waiting list for a few months. Then I got told that sessions became available to me with a great therapist. The sessions helped me to recognise and challenge the thoughts that I have about myself and really helped me to understand how I could improve the way that I think. It has been the beneficial thing that I have done probably in my life, as I can now challenge my thoughts and help myself do the things that I love to do with the most important people in my life.
It helped to give me more of a purpose and give me a new lease of life.
The therapist that I was with was heartwarming, kind and funny which really helped me through the experience. I now feel more relaxed in my own skin and now have the skills I need to carry on challenging the way that I think in post-therapy life.
I couldn't recommend it more.
