I've felt trapped with lack of productivity and motivation for years. The results have been bad for me which has resulted in bouts of depression that further exacerbated my issues including weight gain. So I spoke to my GP who referred me to Ealing IAPT for CBT. The waiting list was long, but worth it.
This is what I needed. My therapist was very skilled in listening to my choice of words to identify my core issue - and that was that I was a perfectionist! I knew I was, but it was only through CBT that I was able to see how much of my life this affected. And it was through CBT that my therapist was able to guide me to formulate new ways of doing things and thinking about things to change how I feel.
I now feel hugely motivated, and I am doing a lot more than I imagined I could. I feel very optimistic for the future. If only there was CBT back when I was in school!
