Testimonial

My life was increasingly being dominated by anxiety and negative thoughts

that were stopping me from living the life I wanted. By chance I read an

article on Low Self Esteem and recognised all of the symptoms that I was

feeling. The article also mentioned that CBT had helped them cope. I booked

a series of sessions with Chris where I learnt strategies and techniques to

cope with anxious and negative feelings which includes replacing them with

more positive evidence based thinking.

I am now feeling more confident for the future and ready pursue my life

goals.

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.
