"Would recommend CBT to anyone"

About: Cheshire And Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

After suffering from facial twitching and a panic attack I attended CBT not knowing what to expect. My high-intensity therapist Michaela who made me feel very calm and relaxed about talking about my situation. Michaela did an amazing job of breaking down my problems and finding the root cause to it all. Little did I know that my OCD and adrenaline rushes which caused my anxiety was feeding my twitching even more and caused me to have social anxiety. Michaela helped me to changed the way I think and along with other techniques I was able to break the circuit of the mental health circle that I was trapped in.

Since my therapy my twitching has reduced massively and I'm able to relax and do more social stuff that I shied away from with confidence.

I would recommend CBT therapy to anyone. things didn't changed over night as its all time in practice but it was worth every minute.
