"very positive experience with community psychology service"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult Mental Health Services - Community (County)

(as the patient),

I have just finished 4 months of psychological therapy with a my local mental health trust. I have had a very positive experience (I haven't always felt this). I was treated with great respect, at a level appropriate to my level of understanding. All sessions felt comfortable, with me being involved all the way. I felt I had control over action plans. The appointments were always prompt, never cancelled at short notice and held in a comfortable environment. The therapist's skill and friendliness meant I always felt totally at ease and confident that my opinions were valid and respected. I feel I have finished equipped to continue my progress supported by some mindfulness. I actually feel positive-and I do not always feel that after interventions.
