Ever since I was very young, I have been prone to anxiety.
This became a serious problem after a work related incident, triggering severe depression, which required medication.
Counselling helped me understand the background to my illness, but even after several other forms of therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I still found myself prone to relapses.
I came to understand that in order to become well, I would need to change the way I thought and reacted to situations. Unfortunately, I did not know how to do this, and the NHS did not seem to be able or willing to help.
Whilst attending a course run by Ursula, on Overcoming Self Doubt, I got into conversation with her, and mentioned that I was becoming increasingly frustrated by my lack of ability to move forward in my life.
She suggested that I might benefit from Life Coaching, and offered me four trial sessions.
In those four sessions, I felt I had made more progress than in years of other therapies, and had no hesitation in booking additional sessions.
I look at the future with a sense of optimism. Before I met Ursula, I was resigned to the fact that I would continue to be plagued by anxiety and depression, for the rest of my life. Now I believe it is possible to free myself.
