Client comments

The very first time I met Veronica I was very upset and could not speak about my car accident as I was so overwhelmed by my emotion.  The second time I still felt emotional but Veronica made me feel so relaxed as she was so easy to talk too. I am in my 8th week of therapy and today being discharged and feeling so relaxed. I can speak about my accident with my family and friends without feeing emotional and overwhelmed and am enjoying life again. I am feeling much more confident and am glad that I had cbt therapy,  I no longer feel traumatised and feel that the last 8 weeks of therapy have been extremely beneficial to me. Mary 68

I was apprehensive of talking about my emotions something I have always felt difficult. However life was not going great and I had found it increasingly difficult for me to control my emotions. I would find myself tearful or angry with the people l loved the most. A friend of mind recommended Veronica. I found her to be warm and kind and I was amazed at how much I spoke about my feelings on that first session. She helped me make the connections between my past experiences and now and how to let go of past hurts and difficulties.I had a number of sessions with her and always felt a little better after each session. I am so glad that she was recommended to me FC

I came to you when aspects of my work and family life were getting out of control and I felt completely overwhelmed.  Stress and feeling inadequate had led to unhealthy habilts and unhelpful thoughts. Negative thoughts kept leading to negative actions and I needed help to break the patterns.  With your help, I have learned CBT techniques which help me to appraise situations objectively and think about things in a more positive and proportionate way.  Through our sessions I gained the confidence to finally leave my job and start a new one which I would never have considered prior to CBT.  This has been the right decision and it was liberating when I realised I had a cholice.  Very importantly, I have regained my sense of perspective and feel extremely lucky for all I have.  Thank you for being so caring and for all your help.  The future is looking very bright.

Thank you for all your help.  I did not think it would be possible to feel the way I do at the moment.  I had lost much of my confidence through a relationship breakdown, stress at work and feeling pretty low.  CBT has worked wonders for me.  I still get some days that I find challenging but I now know how to catch my negative thoughts and try to think in a more helpful way about the situations I find myself in.  Thank you very much Veronica I really appreciate everything you have done for me.

I was a bit unsure at first what to expect as I had never been for therapy before.  You quickly put me at my ease and I felt able to talk about my issues.  I have found therapy extremely beneficial and would recommend this to anyone who has struggled with issues from the past.  You are a very kind, warm and caring person.  Thank you for everything.  Best Wishes, Marie.

Life's pretty good at the moment, having been through some fairly tough times.  I found trying to cope in my own way was failing badly, my stepdaughter had very good results with CBT so I thought I'd give it a go.  Fear of flying was my initial reason for contacting you, however, it soon became clear the death of my parents in quick succession had hit me considerably harder than I first thought.  Talking to you, as a neutral outsider, so to speak enabled me to quickly come to terms with one or two demons I had regarding my parents death i.e. blaming myself, could I have done more etc etc.  The answer was I did everything I could I just needed to change the way I thought about what was going on at the time, that's where CBT came in, the strange thing is by just talking things through with a third party it all suddenly becomes very clear. I now feel I can find closure and get on with life. Many many thanks for all your help I couldn't have done it without you.
PS I am now looking forward to some nice holidays abroad too forgot to mention this as sorted my fear of flying too. Best wishes Steve T
