Can therapy help with emotional issues?
Client feedback from Gareth
Living life with trauma is very hard. For years I did not know what to do, how I could get rid of nightmares and horrible flashbacks.
You were so understanding and took time to explains things and why I felt the way I did.
My nightmares and flashbacks and anxiety have gone. I only wish I had known about this therapy and come to see you before. I can never thank you enough for turning my life around, hope this card shows my full appreciation.
I would highly recommend Munya as a therapist if like me you suffer from anxiety, specifically in the workplace. CBT is a long process and takes hard work but thanks to Munya's help I learned how to process and analyse challenging situations in a much healthier way. We came up with a number of practical strategies that I now use on a regular basis. Munya has helped me deal with both depression and anxiety really effectively and I can't thank him enough for his help.
Thank you for all the help that you have given me during therapy. My life has changed, I feel like a new person. Before therapy, I did not know that I had depression, OCD and perfectionism. You explained things so clearly, it made sense. The tips, strategies and techniques are so helpful and I continue to use them often. I would recommend anyone with psychological problems to see you without any hesitation. Thanks again.
What made you come to therapy?
I arrived at therapy due to concerns I had been experiencing which were not being counselled to their importance through the GP or family. My only alternative had been to speak with a specialist and I knew by allowing myself to speak openly over the fears and concerns I had with someone new, that this could present some newer insight to which I had not realised before.
- How has therapy helped you?
Therapy has given the courage and the information which I needed to understand the vary different symptoms which I had been feeling every different day, Mr. Chigwada had been so instrumental in my recovery practice ever since the very first conversation over the phone to our last unforgettable session in which we had discussed how far my worries had improved from. Without Mr Chigwada and therapy, I am certain I would have been in a much more unstable condition than I feel now and having been through therapy, it has allowed me to feel much more optimistic about the future.
- What would you say to someone who may be thinking of coming to therapy? To not to judge the idea of seeking out help is a bad or weak minded thing to do. Therapy allows you to speak with someone completely new and adds weight in speaking about any worries or concerns someone has in a controlled environment and take it from me, coming from an Asian background, our culture is built on the importance of family connections and having family disuses all problem and worries, however Mr Chigwada has allowed me to feel safe and open myself freely in order to feel much more optimistic and better about myself.
I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help over the past few months. Our sessions have helped me a huge amount, and whilst I know the journey’s not over yet, I am in a much better place than I was before. Thank you for helping me make my life better!
Just a note to say thank you so much for the therapy sessions, they were so helpful for me. I am still working on my CBT and will do a homework session tonight as I know I need to keep it going.
The way you delivered the sessions was just right for me, you were very professional but also I felt very comfortable to be able to talk to you openly. I took a lot away which I can now use everyday and will probably always need to use these tools. I appreciated the whiteboard and the exercises we did and also that I have a plan to help me if I get any relapse.
