"Really helpful and made me feel like I can do things that I didn't think I could"

About: Inclusion Matters Sefton

(as the patient),

Inclusion Matters really helped me, it made me feel comfortable and increased my confidence in social situations. Without seeking help from Inclusion Matters I don't think I would be able to do things I can do now, the therapist was really helpful and made me feel like I can do things that I didn't think I could.

Talking about how I felt in social situations really helped me, as the therapist was able to give me helpful advice on how to deal with these thoughts. What I thought was extremely beneficial for me was exposing me to certain situations, this decreased my anxiety over time.

I am extremely grateful for how Inclusion Matters helped me. Thank you.
