"Not far enough along in my therapy for this course to help me"

About: Six Degrees Social Enterprise (CIC)

(as the patient),

I attended one session every month (30 mins) with a counsellor. For me the sessions were too far apart and too short to have a lasting impact on my health. I became more depressed and was referred to a mindfulness course while waiting to see a counsellor every week. The mindfulness course would have helped me if I was further along with the therapy, but as I am still waiting for therapy I feel too much anxiety to relax in the sessions, although I do feel they are good for the majority of the group who seem to be already on the other side of therapy.

Response from Chloe Preston, Gateway Worker, Six Degrees Social Enterprise

Thank you for writing your personal account Narrow555.

I am sorry to hear your mood has deteriorated and you haven't been able to fully apply the mindfulness at this time. I will feedback to the team the length between the 1-1 sessions were a little too long for you.

I hope the counselling you are awaiting will be helpful for you.
