Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Can Help with Jeff Roberts
Born and raised in Kelowna, Jeff Roberts is a 32-year-old leading what could be considered a normal, average life.
In this episode of #OurAnxietyStories Jeff shares that although he leads a normal life, he has a rather unique story. Reflecting on his high school years, Jeff recalls a specific traumatic incident, involving using the restroom, that set-off 15 years of severe anxiety. Over the years that followed, Jeff sought out treatment and support, including counselling and medication, but struggled to find something that worked for him. Eventually, Jeff connected with the Vancouver CBT Centre, and refers to their staff as “the best people in the entire world”, claiming they saved his life.
"For the first time in my life, I told my entire story to somebody, and what do you know they told me it was a normal thing, that it was anxiety, and that it could be dealt with. "
