I'll carry my new ways of thinking forever 

"I just wanted to say thank you for all your help, kindness and support over the last few months. CBT was not always easy and there were dips along the way but seeing you was the best decision I've ever made and I'll carry my new ways of thinking forever." 
Heather, Leeds 

I now understand myself 

"Everyone should do this! I didn't expect to get so much from CBT. I now understand myself and how my mind works. I now have the skills to manage my anxiety which means that going to work is no longer such an ordeal. I feel like my old self again. Thank you." 
Gary, York 

.... such a positive impact on my mood 

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my sessions and they have played a key role in helping me successfully manage my mood and anxiety. I was apprehensive at the start but my therapist was very approachable and someone I could easily talk to. I've looked forward to my sessions each week as they have had such a positive impact on my mood and I now feel better both mentally and physically. Sessions have been insightful and useful and I can't thank my therapist enough for the help and support she has given me during a difficult period of my life . I now feel well again." 
Kevin, York 

I have my old life back 

"I started EMDR as a sceptic. However, in just a few sessions I worked through the trauma of a nasty accident. Months and months of feeling dreadful changed within a few weeks and I now feel as though I have my old life back. I can drive comfortably again and I've changed my job. I achieved all that in 8 short weeks. Thank you." 
Johnny, York 

I feel so much better within myself 

"Thank you again for all your help! It’s really made a positive impact on my life. My friends and family have all seen a noticeable, positive change in me and that’s all down to what I learnt in our sessions. I used to be very shy and had low confidence. I no longer dread social functions and I feel so much better within myself." 
Kerry, Harrogate 

EMDR - Wow! 

I've just finished a course of EMDR related to a car accident I had last year. Until the EMDR I was struggling to drive, feeling anxious all the time and my mood had dropped. Within a few hours of my first EMDR session I noticed that I was driving without anxiety and my progress has continued since then. All my worries, sleepless nights, fluttering heart and low mood have gone. It's been great. Thank you. 
Debbie, Leeds 

Thank you 

"As you know there have been some sensationally low points in the past few months and the improvement in my mood has been hugely influenced by you, your strategies and techniques as well as the medication. I am very grateful to you. Thank you."

I now see potential for happiness 

I started CBT sessions struggling to survive and seeking ‘damage limitation’ in all areas of my life. My life offered little joy, it was an ordeal to be endured. I’m ending CBT not feeling ‘cured’ but feeling able to cope with my anxieties and worries which means that I have regained some control back into my life. I have been given ‘tools’ with which I have the ability to help myself. 
My family has also benefited from my CBT as I have worried less about them and given them space and freedom – they now worry less about me! 
I have learned to breathe, think and assess a situation before panic and anxiety take control which stops old patterns of thinking and behaviour repeating themselves. CBT has enabled me to stop regurgitating problems of the past and to look forward. I now see potential for happiness and joy and have a more positive outlook on life.
