Testimonial

My life had gradually become controlled by anxiety and irrational fears that stopped me doing everyday things and left me feeling like a failure. Chris provided practical and simple to understand techniques that really work, giving me the skills to help myself when unhelpful thoughts arise. I am now gaining confidence and have already started ticking things off my goals list that I did not believe I could do anymore.
