"Emetophobia and panic disorder therapy "

About: Inclusion Matters Liverpool

(as the patient),

My experience with inclusion matters was rocky at first (all my doing). With the stigma attached to mental health and seeing a therapist I was reluctant about even going, so with a Failed first attempt and then having to be moved due to not being able to travel to the clinic I was assigned to (all of which the service was more than happy to accommodate with).

I pulled up my socks and accepted the help I knew I so desperately needed. That was 6 months ago and I can't tell you how different of a place I'm at now due to my therapist at inclusion matters! The sense of relief I felt about being able to share my problems with someone who GOT IT! ! Was amazing, I immediately felt a weight had been lifted!

When I started my therapy I was hardly leaving the house, the thought of going the corner shop would give me a panic attack and I felt so helpless and alone! The Inclusion matters therapist made me see I wasn't, gave me hope that it would get better and made me believe that I would be able to function again!

Now don't get me wrong it wasn't all plain sailing, I had my ups and downs and days I wanted to give up and never leave my house again but my therapist helped me realise that a few bad days are ok..as long as your willing to put in the hard work and want to change your life you can! And that's what I did!

Now that I've finished my course of therapy (I did 20 weeks) I can see a future, I know how to deal with the bad days and I have the tools to function like me again!

I couldn't be more happier about my decision in taking inclusion matters help and I wouldn't hesitate in taking it again if needed! Wonderful service, thank you
