"I can now stop negative thoughts before they set hold of me"

About: Inclusion Matters Liverpool

(as the patient),

Having gone through years of childhood abuse my ability to process thoughts as an adult was very difficult. Sam at Liverpool’s great Homer Street help me feel in control again. I can now stop negative thoughts before they set hold of me. Sam was always happy to go at a pace that suited me and made me feel at ease and accepted. If I could change anything it would be to have more sessions over six months perhaps such that you can reflect on how CBT helps you and keep up the stability.

I would like to thank Sam for her help she made a big difference.

Response from Tracey Murden, Inclusion Matters

Dear Edge750,

Thank you for sharing with us your positive and helpful experience of CBT. Sam will be delighted that you found the sessions so helpful. It's interesting to hear that you would have found having your sessions spread over a longer time more helpful. We will certainly keep this in mind.

We always hope that CBT equips you with the skills to continue with your progress, however, if you do find that you need further support in the future do remember that you can refer yourself back to the Liverpool IAPT service.

Kind regards
