The realisation that I needed help was like a lightbulb moment. Picking up the phone was the hardest thing I have ever done and I could barely speak at the time because I was so upset. The relief I felt afterwards was so overwhelming but I knew it was the right thing to do. I was seen very quickly at a mutually convenient time and the relief I got from my first session was incredible. I very quickly began to feel better and the sessions made me realise how little I did for myself because I was so busy taking care of everyone else. I've now been given the tools I need to take back control and increase my self care by making little changes each day. To anyone worried about making that first step, please don't hesitate. Instead of seeing no future amongst all the anxiety I now have hope.
