"Therapist gave me practical solutions to help me manage"

About: Inclusion Matters Sefton

(as the patient),

I have been receiving Cognitive Behaviour therapy for a number of weeks – the person I saw was a lady called Estee. Estee was absolutely wonderful, she explained everything really well drawing pictures to show me how my brain and body worked together so that I understood why I felt the way that I did.

Estee gave me handouts on how to deal with my worries and how to develop my own solutions to them. This was brilliant as it gave me an outlet for my concerns. She also gave me another handout so that I could learn techniques to help me remember things.

The whole service was really, really wonderful. I could not thank them enough. It was not like counseling where they just listen to you, they gave me practical solutions to help me manage.

Dear 'Eft483',

Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback for us on Patient Opinion.

You give a really nice account of what CBT is like and I hope that your words will encourage others to access treatment.

I will make sure that your positive feedback is passed on to Estee.

I wish you all the best for the future,
