Another change…….I have phobia re hair salons and having hair done (has been truly awful in past).
Today I walked into an actual salon & a lady did my hair with such amazing focus, care & attention and……it’s perfect!
I felt so different while having it done. Before I’d be literally on verge of panic attack whole time in salon (no exaggeration) but this time I was completely different.
I didn’t have sense of panic, I could breathe plus even trusted!!!! I can’t tell you how this makes a difference to me. It’s so random I know, but as a woman in constant fear of hairdressers it’s been so defeating and feeling so unattractive and low self-esteem with horrible old hair.
So thank you again.
Having suffered anxiety and depression on and off over the last few years, I had lost faith in that I’d ever feel good about life. A traumatic incident overwhelmed me and I felt unable to function properly.
After hearing about Social Support Systems, it took me almost a year to finally ask for some help. I knew something needed to change and although it was hard admitting I was struggling, I took the risk. And am I glad I did.
The difference I feel is fantastic.
I feel like a big weight has lifted off my shoulders and the crippling anxiety is reducing.
I can even laugh as I work through my worries, something I never thought I’d do. My family has noticed the positive change in my attitude and that I am far less worked up and snappy.
My facilitator was patient, kind, understanding, and puts no pressure on me. Talking to her is changing my life and my family’s life. I can’t thank her enough.
Am tired, grateful & just resting.
Everything seems a bit better. I have a quiet feeling of pride in my younger traumatised self for facing those big things.
I’m so glad we did all that work over 2 sessions. Feel like we did important childhood traumas. Was amazed we just ‘happened’ to do the ones I would have chosen from the list today.
I absolutely am so shocked that even now when I think of dad coming into my bedroom that time I literally just smile!!!!???
‘I had been struggling with a traumatic event that affected my life on a daily basis. One session with my facilitator has made an unbelievable difference; I no longer have flashbacks, I can talk openly about what happened, I feel calmer and have less anxiety.
I was nervous before the session but the process was explained to me fully before we began and i was made to feel completely at ease. We went at my pace and i felt in control the whole time. I can’t recommend Social Support Systems enough.’
‘I had the best night’s sleep in a long time. First time I’ve not woken up until after 8am for a long time!!!I Feel much better.
No visions anymore at any time. I can now run through the incident with no issues…it seems you’ve fixed me!!’
‘Something very deep has changed.
It’s almost imperceptible to my conscious mind.
It took a few days to filter through but it’s a sort of vague ‘good’ feeling somewhere inside. Comes and goes. A miracle considering how I was triggered into trauma almost constantly before.
I’m grateful we’re meeting again. I think this may turn things around for me.’
‘I have attended all manner of incidents, but I recently dealt with an incident that caused me issues.I had constant reminders of it and it started to interfere with my private and work life.I had a vision in my head 24hrs a day that i just couldn’t get rid of. I considered the GP, asking for help, and thought about going off sick. I broke down at work and sought help internally and was directed to Social Support Systems.After a quick online questionnaire i was asked to phone and make an appointment.The day arrived and i didn’t know what to expect, but after three hours with my facilitator I no longer feel or suffer the issues I did, and life is back on track.An unexpectedly simple process provided relief for me – Much quicker than a GP visit and then onward referral. I really can’t praise or thank them enough.’
‘It’s very bizarre…Yesterday I thought ‘no way would talking work’, but the difference I feel that sharing what happened with you is unreal.How can one session be so beneficial?.I feel like a pressure has lifted from me – a strange feeling of acceptance of what happened, but to move forward. For the first time ever I can feel a spark of hope!
