"Accessing CBT therapy"

About: Sligo/Leitrim Mental Health Services / Sligo Adult Community Mental Health Services

(as the patient),

stress due to work  i felt depressed so i went to my local GP. I was referred to a mental health clinic. After discussion at clinic I was sent for CBT . After several meetings and discussions with my therapist which is ongoing i have regained some of my confidence.  

My therapist was a great help in this difficult time for me.   I found the exercises given to me to do were a great help in a step by step manner.

Dear Country man

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience of attending the Mental Health Services and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. It sounds as though you are finding the therapy sessions and the homework involved helpful during a difficult time in your life. I am glad to hear that you have regained some of your confidence again. May I wish you well throughout the remaining therapy sessions and for your continued recovery into the future.

I will share your positive story with all of my Cognitive Behavioural Therapy colleagues and I am sure they will appreciate your honest feedback.

Kind regards
