Andy(28): "I had been experiencing acute depression, was homeless as a teenager, and needed to resolve my inner struggle. I had Integrative CBT at FreeMIND clinic, and it showed me how to manage my low mood, capture my negative thinking before it spiralled out of control and build my self-esteem in the present, not reflective of my past......"
Adam (45): “my life was full of turmoil, I nearly went down the route of despair… I needed to understand the conflict I was feeling - after a course of integrative psychotherapy, I realised what was maintaining my anxiety and it showed me that I had to change my perspective on life; all my thanks go to Dr Laura Fontaine.."
Richard (53): "I was experiencing flashbacks, intrusive thoughts and avoiding all places and people that reminded me of the past trauma I experienced... I started Individual CBT with Laura and at the start I was petrified, but I began to quickly feel calm and safe with Laura. After 24 weeks of CBT, I was able to think clearly, I know longer avoid places. I have truly met an angel that assisted my painful journey, I am so glad I sort help from FreeMind Clinic, now I am more aware of my needs and have the confidence to improve my life even further.... thanks for everything".
Dennis (23): "I came from a life of drug abuse and other addictions, my views in life was blurred and I was on the verge of loosing my career. I only had 18 sessions of CBT and 10 sessions of personal development and it has changed my life. I have learnt to utilise values and morals in my life instead of outside gratifications - this has reduced the social anxiety and depression I was experiencing. I would definitely recommend Laura Fontaine to anyone..."
