"CBT for PTSD"

About: Sligo Adult Community Mental Health Services

(as the patient),

Care and treatment for PTSD after a very traumatic childbirth. Caroline was my CBT therapist. Caroline was very kind, patient and professional at all times. She helped to overcome my anxiety about certain issues and regain confidence in myself. I really found the Assert Yourself modules extremely helpful to apply to all areas of my life. Overall I had a very positive experience and would highly recommend CBT to anyone. I feel more confident and positive than I have ever been before and really feel I am finally moving forward in my life.

Thank you very much for taking the time to describe your positive patient experience and in particular the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It sounds as if the CBT really helped with the issue, but that also being treated with respect was very important to you as well. I will be sure to let the people involved in your care know that they were both effective and caring in their work.

I wish you well in the future,
