A review of Cheryl Pugh by Anonymous written on Saturday 14th of November 2020
Over a year ago when I chose Cheryl as my therapist, I would never have believed I'd cope so well with something as life-changing (for all of us) as the coronavirus lockdown of 2020. I am amazed at how much I have changed and how much stronger I am mentally, as well as physically!
It was in March 2019 when I contacted Cheryl, knowing I just couldn’t continue living with the anxiety that had followed me for my entire life and all the ways in which it had impacted on my physical and mental health. I was always ’stressed’! I knew no other way of being, and it was all self-created.
Therapy isn’t easy! You have to work hard at change and it takes courage and determination to alter the habits of a lifetime. You learn to look beneath the surface, through the layers of who you are; at why you do things in a certain way; and begin to see what you really want out of life. It can mean small steps. Sometimes you stumble and have to take a step back and review things, but after a while you begin to see a new world opening up to you; a spring in your step and feeling of well-being that you perhaps have never felt before. That was what happened to me.
Cheryl combined different types of therapy and counselling techniques to give me great resources, which I use whenever I need. The work we did together gave me back my confidence and self-esteem but also taught me to look after me! I learnt to value myself for the first time in years; gave up striving constantly for perfection, and found new ways to prevent myself from feeling under pressure. Instead of the usual ‘yes’, I’m now capable of saying ’no’, or ’not today’ whenever I know it's right for my own well-being!
Thank you, Cheryl, for your understanding and indeed your friendship; for helping me with the next chapter of my life and to reach for the light at the end of what once was a rather narrow tunnel. I certainly met you at the right time!.
