Feel Better to Get Better
The most important thing to remember is that your health is highly dependent on your psyche; the more depressed you are, the greater the chances of disease. A reduction in your stress levels will ensure that your mood is better, along with a boost in immunity and longevity. Extreme worry and stress levels have the potential to make you ill, from a simple common cold to severe cardiac conditions. When it comes to managing your condition, including depression and anxiety or coping with grief and loss, Barbara uses an approach to couple and family counselling that is a brief, emotionally focused therapy model.
The point of therapeutic services is to help patients cope with psychological blocks or intense trauma. With Barbara’s assistance and dedication, any patient can overcome depression and live a normal life.

You may remember my name, as a client you had some years ago. I have been meaning to write you for some time to let you know of the lasting impression you made on me.
Since I have left your counselling, there have been many times that I have asked myself how would Barbara suggest that I handle this or that situation. In relation to a current issue, I remember you saying that you couldn't change how a person acts, you can only change how you would react to their action. It seems such a self-evident thing, yet sometimes it needs to be pointed out by a third party.
As well as that, I have often asked myself, what question would Barbara ask here. As often as not, the question is one of self-examination, as in why, precisely, am I disappointed/frustrated/happy/sad/emotional about whatever is current. The answer, (if not illuminating) at least allows me to deal with it in a more appropriate way.
Having had the advantage of your counselling, I am very pleased to tell you that I think it has made me a better person. Although I tend to let whatever issue get the better of me before I ask myself "What would Barbara say/suggest here?", I am striving to ask myself that query earlier in a given situation.
Barbara, I am very pleased that I had the help of your advice and that I continue to be helped by it. I sincerely hope that you & your family are well.
