"Just to have someone to talk to and understand can help a person "

About: Inclusion Matters Liverpool

(as the patient),

Met by a counsellor who talked me through what the treatment and techniques used for treating this condition. He let me talk about my feelings and the effect that these feelings have on my every day life.

The activities diary I was required to do out of session helped myself to gain more motivation within myself. I did more with my day and felt I achieved a lot more resulting in a happier me.

The counsellor also recognised I was aware of the panic attacks and their causes so in the following session he had already enquired about my further development in treatment within a related area. I was so pleased that after only one session the counsellor was able to see and direct me to the area of help that I really needed.

Thankyou. This has helped me tremendously, just to have someone to talk to and understand can help a person to shed those excess stressors. I look forward to my next area of treatment.
