"I am still working things through, but no longer on my own"

About: Inclusion Matters Liverpool

(as the patient),

For a long time I struggled. I went to see my GP with what I thought was a physical problem. I couldn't sleep and was on edge. He found nothing wrong physically but asked me questions about how I felt. He referred me to Inclusion Matters but I just couldn't face it so I struggled on alone.

After six weeks I went back to my GP and this time followed it up. It began with a telephone consultation that I think I cried throughout but then I was I introduced to Barbara whom I met with very two weeks and slowly I began to feel better. It wasn't easy or pain free yet the mist lifted as she challenged and supported me. I am still working things through but no longer on my own.

Response from Jeanette Warner, Inclusion Matters

Dear Lawro59,

its great to hear that after struggling to face your problems alone for sometime, you were able to engage into therapy and found support to work through your problems with Barbara. I will ensure that Barbara receives positive feedback about your response.

The decision to engage in therapy can be difficult for people to make initially and as you point out can be painful, challenging but worthwhile.

I am sure your feedback will be encouraging to other people who may be wondering whether to seek support.

I am glad that you feel that you have support to continue to work through things and wish you the best for your future.

best wishes
