Feedback about Nick’s Therapy
“Nick instantly made me feel comfortable, and I was able to talk freely without worrying about how ridiculous I may have sounded. He gave me simple yet effective methods for dealing with my anxiety and catastrophic thinking, which I could implement straight away. He has an excellent sense of humour and the ability to listen carefully and know when to intervene, allowing me to analyse and understand my faulty thinking processes and change the way I look at situations.
Over the sessions I have learnt so much and seen massive improvements in both my personal and work life. My basal anxiety levels have decreased so that I can now save the adrenaline for when I really need it at work.
I hope not to need the support of Nick again, but would not hesitate to return or refer any person in difficulty."
"I had some experience with 'generic' over the phone CBT organised by my GP. I did not find this very helpful. The therapy you have provided has been at a different level. I have felt engaged and stimulated by the process and, I think, learnt a lot about psychology. It has helped me enormously, both in my professional and private life. So I am very grateful."
"I was very happy with the treatment I received from you. Although my OCD is still present, it is definitely more manageable. I felt that you really understand OCD, much more so that my previous therapists and this had distinct benefits for me. Appointment times were flexible and you were very easy to contact. I would like to have more sessions in the future."
