Prior to our first session, I asked Andrew to list the most stressful events in his life along with his desired outcomes. We then commenced three sessions with a week between each session.
After our first session Andrew felt a slight lifting in his mood. After session two, he felt calmer along with a sense of relief and freedom from distressing past events.
At our third session, Andrew arrived with a lot more energy and enthusiasm. He felt more positive and as though his life had purpose. His sleep patterns had improved and he no longer dreaded the day ahead.
A month and a half after our third session, Andrew reported feeling more at ease in social situations. In fact, he actively sought them out. He was building positive new friendships and feeling enthusiastic about life.
Healthier habits had begun to form naturally. He had started an online course in technology, and had started working with a business partner to build a business. He felt like he no longer needed the support of health professionals because he was on top of his mental wellbeing.
