When I went to see Paul I was nervous and full of anxiety. This was my first counselling session but I didn’t need to worry. Paul made me feel at ease and worked with me at my pace to find the causes of my anxiety and panics. He was warm and friendly and showed me how to relax. After a few sessions I began to feel calmer and now I have begun to get my life back together which is a wonderful feeling.
I had served with the army abroad and had combat experiences which left me with symptoms of PTSD. When I had returned home I felt on edge. I was agitated and had flashbacks about what had happened and had frequent nightmares. I became more distant from my partner and had long periods of silence. Paul explained the specialist therapy of EMDR which is helpful in cases of trauma of all kinds. It has really helped me. I recalled the most disturbing aspects of what had happened and after a few sessions I began to feel more like my usual self. I am now much more confident and can look to the future.
I got depressed and felt life was not worth living. I saw my doctor and was prescribed some medication but I wanted to find out what was going on in my head. It was affecting my home life and work. When I plucked up the courage to see Paul I found he was so welcoming and understanding. I am now more aware of the causes of my anxiety and after just a few sessions I started to feel more positive and able to face life. Thank you Paul for sharing my journey with me.
