About Me

My photo
Life happens. Sometimes good and sometimes not so good. This is an exploration of life and all that interests me. I am a therapist working in Norwich, Norfolk, UK. I'm fascinated in the world around me and how people deal with and relate to it. I like to further my knowledge of people, psychology and more. Please join me on my journey.

Feedback is good

I'm someone who believes in the positive benefits of doing as good a job as I can do, supporting people who want to make a change in their life. That change might be with stopping smoking, stopping other habits, dealing with fears, phobias and anxieties, building confidence, moving on from a broken relationship or perhaps a bit of life coaching (or indirect business coaching) to get some direction and focus. I usually ask my clients to let me know what working with me has been like for them. It's important for me to know. 

I don't do too many shout-outs about myself generally as I'm fairly modest. I also get a good number of direct referrals from the work I do with people and so that's another way of good indicator of people liking what I have helped them achieve. If I've made a difference to someone and they go on to tell someone else, it's their decision, although of course it is appreciated! Someone recently said to me I really should share with the public what my clients say about me, particularly when I get unsolicited feedback. 

So here we go... this was received via email from a client who wanted to stop smoking and reduce drinking (reproduced with their permission): 
"I am extremely thankful to you (Angie) as I haven't had a ciggie since our session and am confident I never will smoke again.  I have also cut back on my drinking alcohol and just drink occasionally when out. I feel so much better in myself both mentally and physically, my confidence and self worth is way up there, so, thank you again" 

I was of course very happy for this person, I managed to maintain my modesty and still share this snippet. Feedback can be very helpful in motivating you to keep doing what you are doing or do something even better, don't you think?
