Treatment for Anxiety
I was referred by my doctor to have CBT with Nick Page under the Practitioners Health Programme. Initially, I was a little apprehensive about counselling due to a bad experience some years ago. However, Nick instantly made me feel comfortable, and I was able to talk freely without worrying about how ridiculous I may have sounded.
He gave me simple yet effective methods for dealing with my anxiety and catastrophic thinking. I implemented this straight away. Nick combines an excellent sense of humour with the ability to listen carefully and know when to intervene. This allowed me to analyse and understand my faulty thinking processes and change the way I look at situations.
Over the sessions, I have learnt so much, and I have seen massive improvements in both my personal and work- life. My anxiety levels have decreased so that I can now save the adrenaline for when I need it at work.
I hope not to need the support of Nick again but would not hesitate to return or refer any colleagues in difficulty.
Thank you so much for your good work.
