  • I hope it helps you

  • I have had CBT in the past and found it very helpful for my anxiety and depression. I really hope it does the same for you xxx

  • I have been offered it and accepted via cfs clinic.

    There is a years wait!

    But it's free.

    What county do you live in, the clinic recommended that I research changing minds. I am awaiting assessment phone call. The wait has only been 3 weeks.

    Don't forget the library will have books covering the therapy. And good luck.


  • Hi i live in the UK

  • I am going to have my assessment for CBT on Monday I am not sure what it entails but someone I know says that it helped a great deal. Although you only get a set amount of appointments if she was right in what she told me. I wish you luck and hope you feel better soon.

  • Thank you ,and i wish you good luck as well.
