Here are some comments that I have received from patients whom I have assisted in the past:
I want to say a huge thank you for the last few weeks, you have been absolutely brilliant and I’ve learned so much from you. It has helped me massively to hear your experiences and other people’s stories of depression and anxiety.
I feel like I understand a lot more about the “downward spiral” that happens when worrying kicks in that can lead to depression and general negativity and because I understand it more I feel like I can combat it and beat it before it gets too bad. I’m not sure that these feelings won’t ever come back but I AM sure I can deal with them now far better than I ever could before.
I feel like I’m back to where I was and who I was before all this happened last year and that’s brilliant. Thank you!
I cannot thank-you enough for all your help and support and I feel I would not be in this place I am today if it wasn’t for you. I shall continue to put into practice all you have taught me and hopefully control my feelings with all I have learned.
Just to give you some positive feedback - GT speaks very highly of you and the work you did with him. Many thanks for your efforts with him.
I struggle to find the right words, but wanted you to know how much I have appreciated you being there for me over the past few months. You have been a big part in my life over a difficult period and I will miss you.
I can’t say it doesn’t worry or upset me to move on without your support but over the months you have given me some valued tools and advice which I will use. You are a very special person who does an amazing job.
Thank you so much for all your support in our sessions. You are very patient and kind and it was really nice to have a laugh with you. I’ll miss you, you’ve made a real difference. Thank you again.
Thank you so much for giving me hope and care for the future, I will always reflect back on the lessons you have shown me.
Just a note to say thank you for all the help, support and kindness that you give me. I really do appreciate everything you do for me and how you make me feel, even when I get upset. You are a lovely person and I am very lucky to have you in my life during this hard time.
Thank you very much for your help, being able to talk things through with you really helped me work through difficult thoughts and feelings. Thank you so much, you are appreciated.
Thank you Emmajane. Couldn’t have done it without you. Take care and speak soon.
Just wanted to say a big thank you. I have tried to put my CBT into practice - some areas I'm doing quite well but others still need a lot of work but I've accepted that I am human and that life is not perfect. Sometimes I imagine you sitting in front of me and you are asking me questions and I am answering them - in some cases out loud - but I choose my location carefully - so I can't be overheard! I had a conversation with my sister over the Christmas period and she said 'thank you for listening to me. Now I have voiced and heard my emotions and thoughts outside of myself I feel so much better. I still don't have a resolution but I'm making progress.' This has really stuck with me and hence I have been thinking about you. So thank you for always being there.
Emmajane, thank you so much from both of us.

Just to say thank you for your support and understanding last Tuesday. Having cleared my head I think I will see if I can stay on the tracks and get back to you if I can’t cope on my own. Thank you again and best wishes.
Just writing to say a huge thanks you for all the support and help you have given to me over the past few months. Not only have you helped me to overcome some extremely difficult and upsetting times, but you have provided me with the knowledge and courage to live with and overcome my anxiety and intrusive thoughts.
I have never felt so comfortable and un-judged as I have during my sessions with yourself, you have allowed me to finally accept my condition, I no longer have to hide away from it, and I finally do not fear it.
Thank you once again, because of you I can finally start living again. Our sessions together are now something that I can look forward to, a time to share my successes, no matter how small, and even better I know I always have someone to turn to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
