I contacted Libby when I was very low, desperately worried about my 14-year-old son, who had been very withdrawn and depressed. Some days he seemed so down, could hardly function properly, near to tears. He couldn’t tell me why or express exactly how he felt, just that he had a sad sinking feeling, which is a terrible thing for a parent to hear. I was desperate and when I heard about Libby I was relieved that I had someone to contact who might be able to help.
Libby was brilliant, she understood exactly how I felt and worked with me to improve how I was dealing with the situation, and also, of course, worked on my son’s problems. She showed me ways that I could cope more calmly with the situation, and tools and methods that I could use, which I will continue to use going forward. I was amazed that even after our first session there was a distinct improvement in my son’s mood. He seemed as if a load had been lifted, and although he still has a few down days, as all teenagers do, it is nothing like how he used to be.
He seems happier and calmer, as do I, and hopefully, this will continue to improve.
I am so pleased that I took the step to contact Libby. I would highly recommend her if you are in a similar situation, it has been very easy to work with her, she has been so caring and helpful.
