"I feel able to cope with life’s challenges"

About: Inclusion Matters Liverpool

(as the patient),

I worked alongside my therapist to address specific issues I had with depression, anxiety and pain. I was able to discuss treatment options and areas for therapy to carer. I worked on myself, my negative thoughts, my role within my family, pacing, worrying and how to tackle concerns by working through a pros and cons list.

My therapist guided my current problems and helped me by focussing work in sessions around home work. I think its really important for clients to take responsibility for themselves, to work hard outside of sessions, to be open with therapist and at least try new techniques – with aim at goals agreed by both parties. I feel able to cope with life’s challenges, and reassured that I can come back should things become too difficult for me. My family life has improved and I am more confident dealing with mental health problems.

Massive thanks to Inclusion Matters.

You're absolutely right- therapy is very much about you and your therapist working together to help you achieve your goals. I'm sure others will find your comments helpful.
