Thank you to anxietycentre.com and especially to Sue
I don't know if you remember me. I have Sue as my anxiety counsellor and when I started personal counselling you were my counsellor for a while and Sue was listening in, training I presume. After a while Sue then became my counsellor.
I am writing to let you know that Sue is absolutely fantastic. I have gone from being an absolute wreck who at my lowest thought quite seriously about suicide. I just couldn't find a way out of the mess I found myself in. I thought I'd be an anxious mess for the rest of my life.
I really clicked with Sue. With her patience and guidance she has pulled me through a very difficult part of my life. I have been taught skills that I know will remain with me for the rest of my life. I'm almost a year into my therapy and I'm doing so well.
My mum was diagnosed with ALS 18 months ago and has deteriorated and continues to do so. So many of my friends told me that I wouldn't recover until my mum passes away. That made me even more anxious. I felt I had little hope. I'm happy to say that yes my mum is still around but I'm almost my normal self. Sue has pulled me through this despite my life’s challenges. I'm now able to spend quality time with my mum. I don't feel sick to the stomach when I see mum or rather her condition. I have been able to get past mums illness and realise that she is still my wonderful mum that I love dearly.
Sue has helped me develop coping skills. She is the voice of reason. I can't thank her enough for all her help. I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful counsellor you have as part of your staff. I now can smile.
Thank you to the Anxiety Centre and especially to 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.
