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.

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.

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 articleTestimonial
