Tell me a little about yourself & what has brought you to the centre?
I was diagnosed again with skin cancer earlier this year as well as other health problems. I felt everything happened all at once. The speed at which the skin cancer growth grew gave me severe anxiety. I have been retired for 12 years and I lost my partner a few years after retiring. I live alone now.
What have you achieved since you became member of CLC?
I have achieved quite a bit. I am able to discuss my problems now. I am not embarrassed anymore and I think opening up helps others to open up as well. I feel so much better now and managing my anxieties so much better. I can put my anxiety in perspective now and I am looking forward to the future. Friends have also said how well I am looking.
What would you recommend to others?
I would say to come and find out for themselves and experience the centre. There is something for everyone. It's very welcoming and the people are friendly.
What has helped since becoming a member?
The 1:1 support sessions were really important and what helped me the most. Everything else has been very helpful as well. Having someone to listen to me really helped. I haven't slept well for 10 years but the acupuncture gives me a fantastic nights sleep. The CLC empowers you to live your life as you should.
