I had my assessment appointment with the CBT therapist today & she is def taking me on.It will be a bit of a wait but not months more likely weeks.I am pleased, relieved & a little nervy.But having said that she was really understanding, very down to earth & easy to talk to.She used to be a Psychiatric Social Worker (ASW) so she is well experienced.Until I start the therapy I will continue to see my current ASW which helps take the worry off me.

CBT is work, but so beneficial and will keep helping over and over throughout your life. I had CBT in an intensive group situation, which worked for me. In fact I kept the handouts and my notes and note to me from others to return to and have.

I told my T, when I started, that I would like to put emphasis on CBT first, no problem and that worked out great.

It is like learning a whole new language, as most new endeavors are but you will be learning and hit points shazam. I am very happy for you. A little excited and a little scared to me means you are doing the right thing for you.

Love to hear how it goes.
