My CBT with Chris

I have found the sessions invaluable as they have really helped with my anxiety and catastrophic thinking. They have made me realise I’m strong and I can cope. I have also realised I need to look after myself and not absorb others issues as they need to help themselves. I’m now looking at things far more rationally and looking at facts rather than looking at things emotionally which has helped my quality of life immensely.
