"I came away from every session feeling like I can overcome my hurdles"

About: Inclusion Matters Wirral

(as the patient),


I'd like to thank Inclusion Matters for my CBT sessions, they are the best I've experienced. I've just had a baby and was worried about getting postnatal depression because I have tended to get depressed in the past, and anxiety is a big problem for me. I've also had a lot of therapy as I've always felt unstable and unable to manage my emotions, damaging relationships and myself.

I saw Dartha and this was invaluable because he gave me a chance to express myself, and he listened and appeared to understand. But, he also showed me a way forward and a way of coping with difficult feelings of fear. I've had CBT before, but during other session, it's as though acknowledging an emotion is almost taboo.

I felt validated and then able to tackle feelings of panic and anxiety as a consequence. Dartha is a very skilled and gentle therapist who is a generous communicator. I thought his style of communication and thoughtfulness encourage me to move on and I found him to be inspiring.

I came away from every session feeling like I can overcome my hurdles.
