Kevin's Story - Guided Self-Help
"I am contacting you as I have just completed my six sessions of italk and I would like to say a massive thank you for your kind help during one of the most difficult times of my life.
I can tell you with 100% belief that without your support and kindness, getting on the road to recovery and feeling better would have taken a lot, lot longer. The course has given me some good skills for the future that, god forbid, if the depression does come back, I will be a bit better off to cope with it.
The best part of the course was the telephone calls where it gave me an opportunity just to talk and have someone who is kind hearted just to listen. Take it from me, along with the course, the fact that I had someone qualified to talk to was a massive help."

I am so glad I've worked through this programme and it is definitely 'the nudge along' I needed when I felt lost and stuck. I think that what was I needed all along, just some help really. I am very grateful for what this programme has done for me and even just being able to go out for dinner with groups of friends and people I don't know as well without overwhelming anxiety has been such an amazing turnaround for me.
I definitely feel like my old self again, but a better version, like Katy v2.0, with more control and more knowledge about myself and my body. I'm also better at identifying moments where self-care is needed instead of just running flat out until I've run out of steam and everything catches up with me.
