Testimonial

“I saw Chris because I was lacking confidence socialising in groups and struggling to meet and chat to new people. The CBT techniques that Chris taught me have really helped me to get over the barriers that existed in my mind. Chris was easy to talk to, patient and explained the CBT techniques clearly making them easy to apply. She has helped me get through the problems I was having and I am now a much happier and more confident person.”

In just three sessions I went from having crippling anxiety about exams to feeling like they are much more manageable and something that I can deal with. It has been massively helpful!Testimimonial from Uni student

CBT is not something I would have thought would have been helpful. I was desperate so wanted to try anything. Chris has helped me by what she has taught me and now I can use it everyday. IT REALLY HELPS!Testimonial from a young male

Chris, I would like to thank you for all of your help over the last few months. I was referred to you by a friend who said that you are brilliant and CBT would change my life, she wasn't wrong!Testimonial

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.

"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 becauseTestimonial
