I was left in a state of horrible anxiety, I couldn't cope with life. The Perimenopause and the effect of the Pandemic had left me too anxious to face the day. My practitioner was so understanding and helped me to see how normal my problems were. I now understand how to cope with my physical symptoms and to deal with stressful situations. This service has given me my life back - thank you! I would recommedn it to anyone.

Too scared to ring and talk to someone from the wellbeing service. I've never been right since i lost my brother and brother in law to suicide and my best friend to cancer, ive had covid x 2, I feel constantly drained all the time, physically and mentally, can't concentrate on anything, ive started having bouts of sleep phoralasis, anxious and feel depressed and angry a lot, feel locked in and nowhere to run.

I feel completely let down by the authorities and helpless seeing my son be poisoned by toxic gas on a regular basis. There is no justice and no help for us, why does no one care what is happening to our children and what are we paying our taxes for if we don’t have the same human rights as everyone else? The latest law fare against the community for daring to take a stand is crippling - crushing people who are begging for fresh air for their children and are getting no reasonable amount of help to do so in a timely manner is the end of humanity for our town. No humanity or real support from the government - seemingly a pretence from parliament to placate the peasants. Anyone with a real desire to help stop this has failed because they’ve hit a ceiling. Helpless, attacked, assaulted, violated relentlessly while the people we pay to be in power / positions of public authority watch and allow it to happen. Anxiety, low mood, panic, fear, incredulity, horror, shock, appalled. Emotional rollercoaster and we are not even allowed to fight for our own children any more. What’s left? Roll over and let our children continue to be poisoned? What’s left?!
