    What Our Patients Say About Us

    Some people who have used our service have been kind enough to agree to their comments being used on our website.

    Below are some of their comments.

    1. Excellent service which met my needs in full and helped me to recover.
    2. An excellent service that has really made a difference to my life after 10 years of misery.
    3. Gave me time and permission to reflect and go on to use techniques suggested to me, which were of great benefit and enabled me to get on with my life feelings both comfortable and more confident.
    4. I very rarely have nightmares now. I sleep much better and am able to make plans for the future and feel it worthwhile to take care of myself. I experience far less anxiety and although I still get waves of grief I can let them wash through me and know they are normal and will pass.
    5. This is the first time in 17 years of looking for treatment for PTSD that I believe the professionals involved truly understand the condition and its effects on the individual and their families. They offer a practical approach to finding solutions. 
    6. Life changing, life saving, life now worth living.
    7. Thanks so much for leading me through the therapy, I found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The EMDR in particular I found staggering, for want of a better word. An incredible experience, difficult to summarise in words. It felt as if it went right through the core of me.
    8. This service is very efficient in resolving symptoms of post traumatic stress. The therapist is very reassuring and professional. An excellent service, at last, from the NHS.

    12. Having a mental illness is very challenging; I had nowhere left to turn, felt I had no future and was nervous about attending the service. The staff are excellent and put you at ease straight away. I would not hesitate recommending Lancashire Traumatic Stress Service. For me it's been a life saver and has changed my life for the better, because all the staff have caring natures, the time they invest in you to address your mental needs and the support is endless. Thank you.
    13. Very professional.
    14. The LTSS has helped me so much. They have taken me from a shell of a man to being a whole person again. I can't say enough good things about this service. For 12 years I had problems, but by spending a year with the service I have the rest of my life to enjoy. Thank you LTSS.
