John is very approachable, I feel very relaxed with him, and I don't gel with men. I feel like I have known him forever, I have told him things I have never told anyone. He is really calm, he never judges me. He treats me as an individual, he never tells me what to do, and he asks my opinion. I had some therapists, in the past, who made me feel like a textbook case. His experience shines through. He really listens to me, he doesn't forget what we talked about the week before.
Working with John has really improved my motivation. I am overcoming my fears, and the things I have been avoiding. I am reconnecting with all the people I have lost touch with, and I am building a daily routine, it’s improving my mood. If I was in a low mood at the start of a session, I always felt positive at the end of it. My mood is far better now. I have learned a lot about myself and why I have the issues I do. There were tasks to do between sessions and I found these essential to my progress.
I'm lucky to get such a good therapist.
