I Finally Feel Able To Be Happy and Enjoy Life

"Therapy gave me my life back. When I first called Efficacy and booked my first appointment, I felt at the end of my tether. I'd been suffering from depression, anxiety, very low levels of self-worth and kept constantly getting "stuck" in cycles of negative thinking, rumination, low mood and anxiety. With the help of my therapist I learned how to challenge those negative thoughts and to break out of the cycles of thoughts and behaviours which were keeping me in constant depression. It wasn't always an easy experience, but I can't think of anything I've done which has had such a positive impact on my life.

 From CBT, I have learned to have a much more positive view of myself and how to approach challenges in my life. And, more than anything else, I finally feel able to be happy and enjoy life. Challenges still come along, but for the first time in my life I feel like I'm able to cope with them."
