“Thank you for helping me with my revision schedule. The relaxation techniques and the assisted learning program you have taught me has helped me to remain motivated and focused throughout. Dealing with my underlying stresses has also been very useful. You dealt very effectively with the whole condition – thanks once again!”S.J. a memory retention patient from Cardiff.
“Your course has been a tremendous help with my asthma. The breathing techniques have made such a difference – I hardly need my pump anymore! With the panic attacks gone, I’m no longer preoccupied with the worry. I’ll keep my pump with me just in case, but I feel really confident that the breathing can alleviate so many of the problems that I’ve had. Many thanks.”W.D. an asthma patient from Bridgend.
“Thank you for helping to cure my OCD. I no longer go through the rituals of checking like I did before I came to see you. I am much more relaxed and able to deal with my anxiety far better. It’s like my mind has a way out now rather than being stuck in that constant cycle which could take up most of my day. You’ll be pleased to hear that the short-term goals we set are being achieved ‘smartly.’”G.T. an OCD client from Bassaleg, Newport.
“Thank you for helping with my son’s nightmares. It really was the tip of the iceberg with what he has been through. He is sleeping so much better and his restfulness is helping him deal with some of the ongoing problems. The most dramatic change is how much more talkative he is about the problems. This is helping us to give some support now that we are more aware of what is on his mind.”D.H. father of a nightmares client from Cardiff.
“Your anger management course has been most helpful. I used to despise myself, the way I used to overreact to the slightest trigger. This had become all too consuming before your programme. It all seems so far away in the distance now. I feel I have come a long way, managing the anger by using the techniques that you taught me. Many thanks.”K.D. an anger management client from Newport.
“Thank you for helping me with my stage nerves. I was taking myself down a very negative path with the worry and my voice becoming quieter and more constricted as time went on. Now that that is behind me I am able to develop my confident character which is bringing out the very best in me – both on stage and off it too!! I am quite looking forward to the next round of auditions.”R.J. a performance anxiety (stage fright) client from Cardiff.
“I just thought I would write you a short note to let you know that the driving test went really well. I can drive!! I managed the build-up and used the breathing techniques that you showed me. I must admit, I have been taught breathing techniques before but yours’ had quite a dramatic effect on my anxiety. During the test, I used the affirmations and they helped me get me through the day. I’m just pleased that it is all over with. Many thanks.”S.B. an exam fear (driving test) client from Creigiau.
“You’ll be pleased to hear that I have finally made it to the dentist! I’ve stopped being that “control freak” that my partner keeps calling me. With my panic out of the way, speaking to my dentist and discussing my treatment has helped me to take it in stages. I’ve ticked several conditions from your list. No doubt I will be back to show you my shiny new smile!!”S.R. a dental phobia client from Cowbridge.
“Thank you for helping me through a very difficult period in my life. You have dealt with my emotions very sensitively and empathically. Since losing my husband suddenly, it has been extremely difficult getting my life started. I no longer feel the guilt that I have carried since my loss. Perhaps now I am ready to start my journey.”E.K. a bereavement client from Pontypridd.
“Thank you for helping me through my sleeping problem. I have been through a very stressful period and working through this with you has unlocked this persistent waking. Now that I am getting a good dose of sleep, I am no longer dependant on the sleeping tablets or the alcohol. I am coping far better with my day, my work and my social life. It is such a relief to be able to go to bed without the fear of waking again.”M.D. an insomnia client from Llantrisant.
