When I first went to Tina, I had huge fears of cancer. I had had an x ray last Christmas as I'd had a bad cough. I was terrified of having the x ray and even more terrified of getting the results as I was convinced I had lung cancer. I was terrified of the post coming or answering the telephone - I then realised I needed help. I went to my GP who suggested therapy.
I have found it amazingly useful and so many anxieties have come to light and how one anxiety may well have set off another anxiety, or the reason for it.
I have always been frightened of flying, so the last few years have avoided doing it. I now find myself telling my husband that although I'm not exactly excited about it, I'm prepared to try flying again - quite a result.
I have found Tina so very helpful, and although I might, in the past, have found counseling for me would have been rather self indulgent, I now realise how important it has been for me to be able to move forward.
