My partner and I are in such a better place. We are kinder to each other and understand each other better. CBT has really helped.
I asked for help at a point when the problems I was experiencing became overwhelming and were affecting sleep and my ability to see my way through. After one session I felt back in control and following several further visits to Chris I was surprised how helpful it was just to talk through those areas of my life that were causing me anxiety. Chris was helpful and practical with suggestions for handling day to day anxieties.
I came to see Chris for help with panic and anxiety. She has helped me over just 4 sessions by teaching me ways to manage my anxiety over work and feel in more control.
Having suffered with Anxiety for many years, I decided to give CBT a go. I wasn’t sure if it would help as I have tried many other things in the past but even after the first session with Chris I felt more positive I could change my negative thoughts. A few months down the line and I feel more in control of my life.
Chris changed my life after 4 sessions I’ve gone from being so anxious about everything. I struggled leaving the house, to feeling barely any anxiety. I feel I have the tools to apply to every situation now and feel so much hope for the future.
I had suffered with Anxiety and Depression and felt nothing would help ( except for anti depressants). On my first session with Chris she said I might need 5/6 sessions and this would change my thinking and my life and I did not believe that, but I was wrong. CBT works, if like me you have tried other counselling that did not work for you,
Try CBT it really works.
When I booked to do CBT I was unsure if it was the correct course of action to help me with how I was feeling. I contacted Chris and outlined how I was feeling and what the issues were and she got back to me very quickly to say CBT would help and we booked up an assessment.
I was feeling very down with myself and felt unable to deal with things I’d previously been able to. Over the corse of 4-5 sessions we unpicked how I was feeling and the cause of it. I learnt a different way of thinking and strategies to deal with my thoughts and emotions.
I now feel my self esteem has come on leaps and bounds, I feel so much better in myself and in all my personal relationships.
Chris has helped me find myself again and provided me with the tools to take on anything life throws at me. Thank you.
I came to see Christine after I realised that my depression and anxiety had reached a stage where I was feeling completely numb and isolated from the outside world. I was extremely anxious about my first session however Christine immediately put me at ease and made me feel comfortable about discussing my problems. After several sessions I feel like a completely new person with a healthier and more positive approach to life which has had an amazing effect on my relationships with people around me. For the first time in a long time, I feel great! I only wish I had done this a long time ago.
Life has a habit of throwing things at you and now I have the tools to deal with it. I have had to face my fears but it is surprising that I can work through them. I never thought I would be able to deal with certain situations calmly but learning CBT from Chris has helped me. Changing my low self esteem by telling myself all the good things I have done.
I was in a dreadful way when I first found Christine. I felt responsible for everything and everyone, I felt invisible, and the toll that had taken on me had left me with no self-esteem and anxiety. Christine helped me realise that I have rights as well as others. I have started to look at people in a different way and recognise that their issues are just that, theirs. I can say ‘no’ without feeling guilty and I am beginning to rebuild my life. I have become a much stronger, happier person who is looking forward and not back. I am so glad I took the leap that day and had my first appointment. Thank you for everything.
when I first came to my first session I found it very difficult to get out and do things on my own and would end up shying away completely. After my second session I already felt a difference in myself. Chris makes you feel completely at ease and like you can discuss anything. Now at the end of my 6th session I have improved so much and feel like I have the confidence to do so much more and get on with my life. I would 100% recommend CBT for anyone who needs a confidence boost or a boost in self esteem.
Before coming to see Chris I felt I had nothing to look forward to in life. I felt an impending sense of doom no matter what I was doing and I found even the smallest of issues hard to deal with. However following my sessions I now have a completely new outlook on life. I am focusing more on myself and following my own interests- I feel in control of my own life instead of being puppeted by dread and doubt. Everyday I became more and more positive and it’s thanks to these CBT sessions. Take the advice Chris gives you and use the techniques because they do definitely work.
I was quite down when I first went to see Chris having had issues with low self-esteem and anxiety for many years. I had always found it incredibly difficult to socialise and meet new people, and especially talking to clients at work. Chris was excellent at teaching me invaluable CBT techniques to deal with situations that I would usually find anxiety inducing, and to prevent unhelpful thought patterns that would feed my anxiety. Now, I can quite easily face situations that I would have found too daunting before. This has made a massive impact on my life and for the first time in a long time I can say that I am happy and hopeful for the future.
I have struggled with anxiety all my life, but, in recent years, it has gotten a lot worse. I was feeling constantly anxious and guilty about even the most trivial of things. Seeing Christine has made such a difference. I’m no longer in a perpetual state of anxiety and can rationalise my thoughts and feelings. Christine has helped me to realise that I’m not inherently this way, it’s a product of my experiences, and I don’t need to be defined by my anxieties. The first time I realised that I had subconsciously used Christine’s CBT techniques to deal with a situation that would previously have had me in knots was a real Eureka moment. I can’t recommend Christine highly enough.
