"An excellent service that has really made a difference to my life after 10 years of misery."
"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."
"If only this service had been available to me 30 years earlier, it would have saved me from suffering heartache, anxieties and ill health."
"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."
"Life changing, life saving, life now worth living."
"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 individuals and their families. They offer a practical approach to finding solutions."

The staff are excellent and put you at ease straight away. I would not hesitate to recommend the Traumatic Stress Service.

Thank you."
