Anxiety Counselling With Sue Lead Me To Freedom!

I would firstly like to start by saying thank you for your amazing website and the brilliant work that you all do.

My journey with anxiety started in 2009, after the passing of my mother. I fell into a pit of fear and depression and I had no idea what was happening to my mind or my body. My life became a daily battle of worry, fear, panic, confusion and the deepest darkness. It consumed my every minute and I had never felt like this before, I was so scared.

Countless doctor’s visits, many medical tests and an assortment of medications, which none of worked and only made me panic even more. I was convinced that there was something seriously wrong with me because there was no other explanation as to why I felt so ill.

The life that I once had was gone and my world had been turned upside down.

Scrolling the internet, I came across the anxiety centre. It took a while for me to join up, but in desperation, I did. I could have ticked off every anxiety symptom that you listed, but of course, I still did not believe that anxiety could make me feel so bad.

I had just stopped seeing my third therapist when I requested a session with one of your anxiety therapist, Sue Tavener-Waugh. I am struggling to find the words to describe what this beautiful woman has done for me. She has taken me from the deepest darkness to freedom. I was once so badly consumed with anxiety, that nothing else existed. I never wanted to leave the house. I never found joy the things that I used to. I cried all the time.

Sue has worked with me for nearly 2 years. She has helped me work through issues from my childhood and she had been right beside me, every step of the way. She explained things to me that no one else has ever been able to. It brings me to tears when I think of how much she has helped me and set me free. I never thought I would ever feel this way again.

I thank God for leading me to her. I don’t know what I would have done without her. Sue saved my life and gave me back to my 3 beautiful children and a very grateful husband, who also thinks the world of Sue.

Our sessions are slowly coming to an end. From the bottom of my heart, I thank her. We will always share a special bond and I will always think of her as a very dear friend.

Thank you, Sue.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
