Testimonial

At the start when I first came to see Chris  I felt my worries and anxieties consumed me and I found it very difficult to put things in perspective. After a few sessions and being taught how to overcome my unhelpful thinking with new techniques and thought records. My worries have diminished and don’t seem as big as I once thought or as scary as I once thought – as a result I have noticed how much happier I am in myself.
