I have been working with Emma for a couple of months now and I feel like I am finally making progress and trying to tackle my thought distortions rather than just venting to someone as I did with my previous therapists. We are goong through worksheets, practicing mindfulness and trying to call out some of my behavioural patterns to recognise and work on them.
