Therapy has helped me
Therapy has helped me start addressing some of the issues I was having and look at things in a different way. Some of the sessions can be challenging but more in a thought-provoking way. The therapist appears to understand my issues and puts forward helpful suggestions.
I found being able to talk about my health issues very useful
I found being able to talk about my health issues very useful. I have learned new skills by means of meditation. I find being able to meditate helps me deal with my anxieties. The levels of depression and anxiety I first felt at the beginning of therapy have reduced greatly. The therapist showed great levels of empathy for my issues. I would recommend this service to others.
Paul understands every issue
Paul understands every issue I have discussed with him. He is a very thoughtful and understanding person who is helping me to cope with my problems. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Paul, he calms me down and makes me feel more positive. He is very professional and understanding man.
Paul is a good listener
Paul is a good listener and understood what we needed to talk about, even, if on occasions I didn’t. I had a couple of goals relating to improving my ability to have happy relationships, and talking to Paul, who understood me felt easy and natural. If relaxed and unthreatening is what you are looking for, then Paul will be perfect for you. Unthreatening does not mean unchallenging, because my therapy was hard work at times, but definitely worth it.
Attending therapy has helped
Attending therapy has helped me regulate and understand my emotions and consequent behaviour to a greater extent than I previously did. Paul has helped me create action plans going forward to help me deal with situations that I previously struggled with. Since attending therapy, I have felt a lot less anxious with regard to certain situations and a greater sense of calmness in my life. I would recommend Paul to anyone who wants some help in any specific or general part of their life due to understanding nature and commitment to helping people become the best version of themselves.
It is very useful for me
It is very useful for me to be able to get thoughts off my chest. and for someone to listen and help with my understanding of issues relevant to my current situation. He has helped me a lot to get to a place where I feel a lot freer and able to get the moments of insecurity and intrusive thoughts. I would say Paul has a great understanding of OCD which I struggle with.
I have found being able to talk has helped me
I have found being able to talk through issues with someone who is not personally involved has helped me to come to decisions that I feel will help the situation has been very useful. It has helped me feel more in control. Paul has worked in the NHS for so many years he has been able to understand my issues also my family dynamics and my health issues. This helped because it was more like talking with a friend and that helped me open up. We have taken our time and tackled one issue at a time and really focus on the next steps. My anxiety levels have reduced drastically and I feel more able to deal with what life throws at me. I have had my slips but Paul has helped me to get back up and carry on.
Therapy has allowed me to acknowledge, accept and appreciate my anxiety
Therapy has allowed me to acknowledge, accept and appreciate my anxiety as well as helped me to cope with it. It has enabled me to see my worth and make me believe in myself and my abilities. It has given me confidence and pushed me outside of my comfort zone which has made my life so different all for the better. It has given me knowledge of how my brain thinks which affects how I now deal with situations. Paul understands completely my issues and always helps me to resolve and think about situations whether big or small. Always makes me feel that my views, emotions, and opinions are validated.
I am extremely happy that I made contact with Paul and believe that since therapy all aspects of my life have changed completely for the better. I am the most content and happy I have ever been in life and believe that is completely down to the progress I have made in therapy. I am so grateful for the help and support I have had and don’t know how to thank you enough for giving me a new perspective and outlook on a life that before meeting you, I had decided wasn’t worth living. What a turnaround!
To have a professional listen helped
Having a professional listen and offer a different opinion helped me make sense of my problems. I believe he recognised my situation very well and understood my problems.
The therapy has helped
The therapy has helped me massively so far since I first started. I was so nervous and anxious but can’t believe how much I have overcome my anxiety. I now deal with it instead of having panic attacks and worrying all the time. I’m much more chilled and enjoy life. Paul really understands my issue and has helped me understand and learn how to deal with it. It has grown confidence for me. I am really happy to have found Paul as I have tried therapy a couple of times and felt it never worked or I couldn’t open up but it was nice to feel comfortable to open up and talk about my problems.
Booking my son in for therapy with Paul is probably one of my best decisions
Booking my son in for therapy with Paul is probably one of my best decisions. Not only did it help him deal with the habits I was aware of, but it also brought to light other issues that were restricting his life and stopping him from being a happy teenager. Being able to regularly talk to someone who clearly understood every aspect of his OCD has been really been, for him, life-changing. My son found Paul incredibly easy to talk to and came home from each session with a positive, confident attitude, putting him in a good position to follow the advice and strategies he’d been given.
If I’m honest, not knowing how it would all work, I was initially concerned about the financial commitment of seeing it through, but now I can honestly say it is the best money I have spent. Paul is clearly passionate about his job and, from the results I have seen, incredibly effective. I cannot recommend him enough!
There was very little if anything that he didn’t understand
There was very little if anything at all that he didn’t understand. Even if there were specific situations or obsessive things I did that he wasn’t aware of, he could still provide useful information and techniques to combat them. I felt that what I was experiencing was easily explained and that it was not something unique to me. The strategies that I have learned are always useful and have allowed me to free up a lot of time that would previously have been taken up. It allows you to help yourself. What you learn in CBT can be used for the rest of your life. In the case of CBT, you do not necessarily need to detail every obsessive action you do, which allows progress to be made quickly.
