Cheltenham Counselling Service

Testimonial

———–
Coming to these sessions has helped me to accept that despite issues in the past they can be dealt with. To not be consumed into negative thinking. Allowing me to feel positive and dealing with building on a calmer and more rewarding future.
CBT has enabled release of some of the pressure- like being in a pressure cooker- relieving that pressure and taking time to look at things more realistically.

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.
