I always ask people for feedback when therapy is complete to help me monitor what I am doing right and what I could do better.
Here are some testimonials from people who have been willing for their comments to be published.
“ Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help. The therapy has been a real life changer. I am still a ‘work in progress’ but the strategies you have taught me really help on a day to day basis. I am undoing 52 years of negative thoughts about myself so it’s never going to happen overnight but I am heading in the right direction and can see a more positive future ahead”
“I had no idea what CBT was prior to meeting Lesley. I was struggling with some general anxiety but health anxiety in particular. Lesley was warm and welcoming, she always made me feel at ease and allowed me to open up in a safe and none judgemental environment. After only a couple of sessions with Lesley, things started to click into place and I was able to understand and unravel my thought process using the CBT techniques that Lesley had shown me. Gaining an understanding on the background to my thoughts really helped me to combat my anxieties, this is something I do not feel I could have done alone. Seeking help was a big step for me and I am so pleased that I decided to choose Lesley as a therapist. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody who is struggling. Thank you for your help Lesley.”
“Lesley is fantastic – my CBT sessions were very effective and helped me to better understand and manage my anxiety. Lesley is very knowledgeable and supportive. Each session I was able to make great strides and I came away feeling like I had the tools to make improvements in handling my anxiety. I wholeheartedly recommend Lesley for anyone seeking CBT therapy.”
"Having never had therapy before and being very anxious I was amazed how easy I found it to talk to Lesley. She helped me understand why I was feeling the way I was with anxiety, depression and menopausal symptoms and gave me coping strategies and simple techniques I could use very easily in my daily life to help. The sessions were very in depth without me feeling she was intrusive and she made me feel as though I could say anything to her without judgement. She has a very calming nature and I looked forward to each session I had with her. The results have been fantastic and I am aware of my triggers to look for if I relapse so I can quickly address my behaviours to ensure I don’t end up the way I was before. I have copies of all my notes and ‘homework’ so I can refer back to them whenever I feel I want to or need to. Would definitely recommend Lesley to anyone in need of a friendly listening ear and coping tools"
