SWBCCG Individual Feedback

In February 2018 I was experiencing anxiety and after a few weeks of trying different methods to help relief this I finally went to the doctors and was labelled as ‘depressed’ and given antidepressants to help with my symptoms.

I was referred to Paul to complete the ‘Thriving at Work Programme’ through my work, I was very keen to look after myself and not be on antidepressants for the rest of my life.

Within 3 weeks of starting the programme I had already noticed the difference in myself and became to realise that I wasn’t depressed and that I was putting too much pressure on myself.

The Thriving at Work Programme and Paul helped me to realise that it’s ok to have blips and to be kind to myself, I’m now off antidepressants and have been for over 12 months. This is something that I never thought I would achieve and was a limiting belief for me, thank you to the Thrive Programme and Paul for teaching me to change my limiting beliefs!

I now have the coping skills to respond to work and home life situations better and to not become stressed as I have done previously. Thriving at Work has taught me to manage my limiting beliefs and to challenge unhelpful thinking styles to THRIVE!

I have been to counselling previously and taken part in other resilience courses but none of these compare to Thrive and how it has helped me in my life, I would recommend everyone to complete Thrive as I think everyone can gain something from it!

I would also like to thank Paul for how he delivers the Thriving at Work Programme, he really goes out of his way to make sure you gain something from the programme!
