Cheltenham Counselling Service

Testimonial

“I initially sought help from Chris having suffered from generalised anxiety and panic attacks. This had become so significant that it was beginning to take a toll on my work and family life and my physical health, not least because I did not know what was happening to me and this was worsening my anxiety. Chris helped me to understand what was happening to me and to identify the symptoms of anxiety. She also helped me to organise my work life more effectively and equipped me with the strategies to, firstly, manage panic attacks when they occur and, secondly, to reframe the negative thoughts that had accumulated to cause the anxiety in the first place. For the first time in over five months I am now confident that I can control my anxiety and that using these tools I will eventually eliminate it entirely. I cannot thank Chris enough for helping through this incredibly difficult time and giving me back control of my life.”
