Amazing service has left me more in control of my life both in and out of work. I feel that now I can head off or just cope with bouts of depression and anxiety while still going into work and performing well. I cannot overstate the difference this had made.
After having problems attending work (always starting and ending the day late, frequently calling in sick or pleading to work from home) I attended the occupational therapy sessions at Airdrie Community Health centre. The exercises and advice given not only achieved the end goal - attending work in a timely and effective way - but has also left me with a far greater understanding of my own mental health issues. The effect of this has been that I now feel in control of my fate, rather than the vagaries of depression ruling my life. I cannot recommend highly enough this service for anyone who finds themselves in the vicious circle of depression leading to underachievement at work (real or perceived) leading to more depression.
My therapist was Lisa Greer, thankyou for handing me my life back on a plate!
