What people say

When I first went to see Michaela I was in such a state of anxiety and depression that I needed to be carefully looked after otherwise I would have been sectioned, fact. If someone had told me that two years into therapy I would be engaged and doing what I love best, I would never have believed it. I think it is pretty clear how much I have benefited from therapy, however therapy is not a quick fix. I have only managed to change because I wanted to.
