Overcoming Depression – Building Self Confidence

Civil Servant

I came to see Daniella when I was absolutely convinced that I was never going to feel happy again. I broke down in tears every day and felt overwhelmed by small setbacks. As clichéd as it sounds, at that time for me, there was no light at the end of the tunnel and I had sought help to try and find a way to reconcile myself with the fact I would be miserable for the rest of my life.

I had never been to see a therapist before but from the first session (when I said very little and cried a lot), I trusted Daniella and felt comfortable with her. By enabling me to accept that I had been affected by certain experiences and that it was OK that those experiences had affected me, Daniella helped me realise that I wasn’t necessarily always going to feel this way. I started therapy feeling ashamed, like I’d failed and that I should be able to cope with life on my own. Daniella made me see that it was ok to talk to a professional and took the stigma away for me. I have since told quite a few of my friends and their reaction has been nothing but positive.

I could not tell you how Daniella does what she does. All I know is that she made me feel secure enough to face things I had previously avoided by listening, pushing me when I needed it and seemingly being really invested in the journey I took with her.

As a nervous first-timer I was unsure about signing up for lots of sessions but Daniella suggested I do 3 week blocks and then review. I ended up doing 12 sessions in all and I left feeling calmer, more hopeful and happier. I couldn’t ask for more than that.
