The future feels exciting and full of promise and I'm able to cope with anxiety much more effectively than before, when it inevitably does rear its head from time to time (especially during a house move!). I think the most helpful aspect of the treatment was facing the trauma. It allowed me to recognise triggers and I still occasionally use the technique of thinking about my "happy place" to break the unhelpful thought chains that can lead me to becoming panicked and overwhelmed. The treatment also helped me to see how hard on myself I often was. That in many cases I suffered twice because I would castigate myself for feeling anxious or upset about things. It has certainly helped me to be much kinder to myself which in turn has helped me deal better with the relationships in my life. I see now my thoughts and feelings are valid and the assertiveness techniques you taught me have helped me to take more control both in my personal and professional life. You also helped me to change the way I view pain. Previously I saw it as a physical manifestation of my weakness and a constant reminder of my [traumatic event]. As a result it often ruled my life. Now I am able to be more rational about it, accepting of it. I'm not afraid of it anymore and therefore, it has reduced significantly. I honestly cannot say what I think could be improved. It's no exaggeration to say that the therapy has changed my life for the better. I am extremely grateful and I know my family is too.
