X and Y have just received their University results. They have both received a First Class Degree.
I just wanted to thank you for all the help and support you have given. They wouldn’t have achieved these results without your guidance. Thank you for helping with the support plan. It really helped reduce their anxiety during their final year.
The day after our last session together, Y received a phone call from the hospital. They had arranged a date for her surgery which was the following week. She was able to speak to the doctors and nurses and even spoke to other patients at the hospital. She was able to stay in the hospital for three nights without being allowed any visitors. She is still recovering from her surgery as it was a very big procedure so it has been quite a stressful time.
X managed to do her 45 minute music recital and was surprised as she did not have much anxiety whilst she was performing. She was originally really stressed and anxious however she used your amazing techniques which helped her on the day. She was scared of walking through the door and entering the stage after hearing the bell. She was also worried about the sound of the bell. She gave everything a number and worked on reducing the numbers. Every day she spent around 10 minutes standing outside the door of the recital hall. After many attempts the number started to reduce. She also bought a bell to practice hearing the sound and walking through the door. She kept repeating until it was boring. All of your techniques have really worked and we talk about them every day.
Since finishing University they are still working hard with their tasks. They have both joined the gym. They have been attending different classes and doing things that make them uncomfortable. I just can’t thank you enough for everything you have taught them. They are hoping to start their driving lessons soon too which they are anxious about. They do still find lots of things difficult but always use your techniques to break down each task.
