Testimonial from Counselling

My Anxiety was spiralling out of control and I felt like my worries and fears were controlling my present and future. I can now rationalise, explore and ‘sledgehammer’ (a perfect choice of word coined by Chris) negative thoughts. I can now look forward positively. Thank you for giving me the strength and strategies I wish I had years ago.
