Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation

I’ve really had a great year so far thanks to you, you’ve built my confidence in many ways. I can now tackle many challenges that come my way. I’m more confident and I worry or care less about many different things now.
I am more relaxed as well, with more motivation on my days off. My heads not such a jumble as it was before. I also feel fitter and stronger physically and mentally. thank you so much.

Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation

I was recommended to see Cara by a doctor at the Arsenal and she introduced me to the “Thrive” book. I worked through this book with her and found out more about myself and the problems caused by my own thinking. The way I thought made me think problems were bigger than they actually were. The book was a great eye opener and a joy to work through. I would recommend this book to anyone with any problems, be they anxiety, sleeplessness or smoking, as it more than helped me.

 quotes_66I cannot recommend this lady enough….. She enjoys the fact she is helping you and her compassion, understanding , ease and trustworthiness is second to none. She does all sorts of therapy and even offers a free consultation to see if the therapy is suited to you. So worth every penny i spent and i was kinda sad when she “sorted me out” because i wouldnt see her again. Good luck Oh and she has a fantastic sense of humor

quotes_66I stumbled across Cara and the Thrive Programme at a time in my life when I didn’t really know what was wrong except I just wasn’t feeling myself. I had my doubts initially about the course as couldn’t bear the thought of someone trying to psychoanalyse me but this couldn’t be further from the truth. By the end of the programme I was pretty amazed at how much better I felt in just 6 short weeks. I did put effort into and did all the activities as quite early on I felt a good connection to Cara and trusted her. She never made me feel uneasy, she just gets it! In fact we had some good laughs during the session and before I knew it I was back to my happy place. I have already found myself recommending this course to my loved ones. It was simply brilliant and I will certainly be keeping in touch with Cara.

  quotes_66Coming to see you to do the Thrive programme was the best thing I’ve done in a very long time. I am so glad I made that initial effort, that step towards change.
Firstly – just coming to see you – a sympathetic ear, and a lovely, caring soul – I found it really hard to look inside my own head and analyze my thoughts. With your help, it was possible. All done with a delightful humour too, I do wish I could have you on my doorstep for a chat whenever I felt like it.

Secondly – the thrive programme – it is amazing. I think a lot of it is common sense but we are strange beasts and the daft things we do to ourselves do need to be pointed out to us. We allow ourselves become creatures of habit and unfortunately mostly bad habits – most of us need someone or something to help us break the pattern. I feel as if a large wad of cotton wool has been lifted from my head – as if I’ve stepped out from the fog.

I was suffering increasing social anxiety and low self-esteem. I felt completely trapped and unable to change anything. I had even started to feel ‘scared’ of all sorts of things that had never before and was putting it down to just getting older. My friends and family would probably not have realized that I suffered from these feelings – which did descend at times into depression. My husband, on the other hand, probably suffered as much as me! The Thrive programme showed me that I had been beating myself up for years and suffering very unhelpful thinking styles. It has enabled me to take control of my mind and therefore actions.

I now feel really happy and I feel as if I could do anything. I’ve not quite decided what it is I want to do yet but I am really excited. I am almost there, it is not yet second nature to me and I am still doing the exercises. I also have to set my goals and start to achieve new heights. However I feel I have the tools with which to do all this. The course does include some hard work. I had to commit, make time and work through the exercises. But it was so enlightening and refreshing to challenge my thinking that I came to enjoy it. I couldn’t have done it without you. And I can’t thank you enough
