F: anxiety, worry, restrictive eating (R380, 6 sessions)
Diet is a lot better and I am eating new food. Even to take a bite of something was a big deal, I just would have said “no”; but now I try it and just go from there. I am visiting friends and going out more as well. I think everyone should get to do this – Im now a huge fan of CBT; Im so glad (mood has improved) as I didn’t want to go on tablets; I don’t believe in these. I do believe in CBT – I cant remember being this relaxed; and I have too much to be doing to waste my time being stressed. A new job and new activities keep me busy, incl a concert in X this weekend. I cant wait. Before CBT I would have just said “no” - because there would be too many people or because I would worry about the money, whereas now I just go knowing things will be OK. Everyone should definitely get to do CBT.
F:low mood, panic, and stress (R374; 6 sessions)
Im definitely very happy to have done CBT. It has really worked. I was not in a good place at the start with low mood, panic and stress. But from the start to now it is like zero-to-hero! Im just in a whole different place now in terms of mood. The strategies come in and you just use them. I now have my life back. I definitely have the fun back in life (laughing); Im just back from holiday, and I am getting out and about and doing things. Im very happy – the strategies are fantastic and they really work. Thanks so much
F: social anxiety (R367, 8 sessions)
CBT has been brilliant; it has helped me so much to understand my way of thinking, and how that thinking impacts on day-to-day life. … The future is exciting. I feel happier that I know now what to do to bring my stressometer down. And I am succeeding. I am going now into shops on my own. My confidence is also way higher than it was - so much so that I am not putting things off, and instead, am doing things that I would not have done before. The difference between when I first came here and now is huge; Im 100% grateful – thanks so much.
F: anxiety, stress and low confidence (R366, 6 sessions)
CBT has been just sooo beneficial - to have tools and strategies to cope, as opposed to just talking about how I feel. I did have a big crisis when I got referred; I think to be honest, I had been going to the GP so often that The Mental Health Dept would have been the next port of call, but they are now definitely off the radar. That is not a route I would want … I just felt I didn’t know where to go next, or what to do but that has now all changed. The tools I now have really work, and I am now the one with the expertise to create the life I want. I have definitely come around to a different way of thinking - a more “up” way of thinking,
and I would absolutely recommend this. Ann – you are awesome!
M: depression, anxiety and confidence (R360, 6 sessions)
I had never been to anything like this before. I had never spoken to anyone about things but I was struggling to cope. … Therapy was great and Im glad I came. It is the simple things that are the most help. These have a big effect. At the start … my head was full of the wrong stuff; and now, I am replacing it with the good stuff, e.g. things that make me feel happy and feel good. I have been to the gym now a few times, and it is going well; Im enjoying it. And Im doing more walking. When your thoughts change, you see things differently, you are more open-minded and life is different. Life is better, and you can be a better person. If I'm truthful, everybody should have this.
