Sian's Purple Therapy

Testimonial 14 – counselling

I am a 60 year old man, and before I sought help from Sian at Sian’s Purple Therapy I had been struggling with my mental health for many years.  I had never tried to seek help before.  I had held down jobs throughout my working life, and done fairly well, and I think I was embarrassed that I could not sort my issues out myself.

I knew that I had issues with my childhood, and felt angry and resentful towards my parents.  Generally, I struggled to control my anger, and I was constantly anxious about minor things.  I had regular bouts of depression.

I felt unable to feel happy and as I got older it increasingly made no sense to me.  I had a happy and loving home life and family, but I was putting a strain on them through my behaviour.   I wanted to be a role model to my kids who were now young adults.

I decided something finally needed to be done, and I found Sian online then emailed her.  As soon as we had our first session together, I knew I had done the right thing.  She immediately put me at ease, and I was struck by how non-judgmental she was, and how seriously she took what I told her.  I immediately started to feel more positive that things would improve.

I had a number of sessions with Sian over a period of a few months.  We started by talking, to identify the root of my problems, and then moved on to hypnotherapy.  This was all dealt with highly professionally, and I found the process very effective.  Sian was good at explaining how things would work, and answering any questions I had.  When I was comfortable with where we had got to, I went away with a recording that I could use to reinforce my mental state as and when needed (I have done this and it works).

I saw Sian two years ago, and I am now calmer and happier than I have ever been.  Being more relaxed has had an effect on those around me, and has enabled me to have a clearer idea of what I want to do now, and to feel positive that I will make good choices.  Sian’s input had a big effect on my ongoing wellbeing.
