People who seek out CBT or EMDR often describe themselves as struggling with their mood, feeling stuck, trapped, lost, out of control, overwhelmed or just feeling out of sorts. 
 
This is really distressing and can start to impact on your life and what you would normally do. Some typical examples of how it can begin to affect people are: 
 
Spending time checking or doing things unnecessarily 
Worrying so much that you feel as though you’re losing control over everyday things and unable to ‘see the wood for the trees’ 
Feeling tired and fatigued with mood and struggling to get anything done 
Avoiding things that you would normally do 
Anticipating how events/situations might turn out by looking for all the things that might go wrong or be difficult to manage 
Over-analysing situations and your part in them by wondering what others think about you 
Spending time thinking about and trying to work out past events or why you are feeling how you do 
 
“Thank you so much 
for your patience and compassion. I have appreciated your total professionalism and for helping me get to where I am now. You gave me the hope to believe that I could get better. I can now face the world again and re-engage with life.” 
CBT and EMDR are evidence based therapies demonstrated to 
be effective in the treatment of emotional disorders such as anxiety and depression. They are recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE); the body that informs the NHS.
