Random Pretend words

My name is Miguel, and I came to therapy because I struggled with anxiety and depression. I felt overwhelmed at work and had nightmares and flashbacks related to a traumatic event from my childhood. During my assessment, I shared that I had witnessed my father's murder when I was a child. I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression.

 

My service plan included weekly therapy sessions and medication management with a psychiatrist. I also participated in Touch Direct Contact Therapy (TDCT) sessions with a TDCT practitioner. In my TDCT sessions, I worked on processing my traumatic experiences and developing coping skills to manage my symptoms. After three months of therapy, I felt more in control of my emotions and better able to manage my stress. I also reported improved communication with my girlfriend and children.

 

My TDCT practitioner used various techniques to help me feel more comfortable with touch. We started with simple exercises like holding hands or hugging and gradually worked up to more complex exercises like massage or guided meditation. TDCT helped me feel more connected to my body and my emotions. I learned how to use touch to express my feelings and communicate my needs in a safe and comfortable way. I also found that TDCT helped me feel more connected to my girlfriend and children, and I could enjoy my time with them without feeling overwhelmed or anxious.

 

My therapy had a significant impact on my life. I felt more confident and in control of my emotions and could manage my symptoms more effectively. I also felt more connected to my family and could enjoy my time with them without feeling overwhelmed or anxious. I continued to attend therapy and work on my goals for the future, including improving my work-life balance and strengthening my relationships with my loved ones.

 

My experience with TDCT has been life-changing. I learned how to use touch to connect with my emotions and safely communicate my needs. I also developed a sense of self-compassion and self-care, which helped me manage my symptoms of anxiety and depression. I am grateful for the support from my therapist, psychiatrist, and TDCT practitioner. I know I still have work to do, but I feel more hopeful about my future than I have in a long time. With their help, I am confident I can continue to progress and build a better life for myself and my family.

As a survivor of sexual assault and abuse, I struggled with anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for years. I had difficulty sleeping, experienced flashbacks and nightmares, and avoided situations that reminded me of the trauma. It wasn't until I was in my early 20s that I confided in a close friend about the abuse I suffered at the hands of a family member who lived with me and my mother. I was diagnosed with PTSD and began a service plan that included individual therapy with a trauma-informed therapist, medication management for anxiety and depression, and participation in a support group for survivors of sexual assault.

 

In addition to these therapies, I also received TDCT sessions with a practitioner for six months. During the sessions, the practitioner used touch to help me reconnect with my body and release trauma. I noticed a significant improvement in my symptoms after the TDCT sessions. I felt more relaxed and less anxious, and my muscle tension decreased. The practitioner also noticed that I was more open and expressive during the sessions, which helped me process my trauma more effectively.

 

Despite my progress in TDCT, I still struggled with trust issues and difficulty forming intimate relationships. The practitioner continued to work with me to address these issues and support my healing journey. I was encouraged to practice self-care and engage in activities that brought me joy and relaxation, such as yoga and meditation.

My name is Sarah, and I want to share my experience with Positive Peer Mentoring and the amazing practitioner, Corinne Pulliam. I was struggling with depression, anxiety, and trauma from my past, and I didn't know where to turn for help. That's when I found Positive Peer Mentoring and met Corinne.

 

From the moment I met Corinne, I felt comfortable and safe. She listened to me without judgment and helped me develop a treatment plan that included individual therapy, group therapy, medication management, and Touch Direct Contact Therapy (TDCT). I was hesitant about TDCT at first, but Corinne explained how it could help me connect with my body and emotions, and I decided to give it a try.

 

During TDCT sessions, Corinne used touch and movement to help me feel more grounded and present. It was a new experience for me, but I found it incredibly helpful in managing my anxiety and trauma symptoms. Corinne also introduced me to Connection and Companionship Therapy which involved non-sexual touch and cuddling with a trained therapist. It was a little scary at first, but Corinne's gentle and supportive approach helped me feel safe and comfortable.

 

Over time, I started to feel more connected to myself and others. I developed healthier coping mechanisms and reduced my reliance on medication. I also started to rebuild my relationships with family and friends, who noticed a positive change in me. I felt more confident and hopeful about my future, and I knew that I had Corinne and Positive Peer Mentoring to thank for that.

 

I highly recommend Positive Peer Mentoring and Corinne Pulliam to anyone who is struggling with emotional health issues. They truly care about their clients and provide a safe and supportive environment for healing and growth. Thank you, Corinne and Positive Peer Mentoring, for helping me on my journey to recovery.

Hi, my name is John, and I want to share my experience with Touch Direct Contact Therapy (TDCT) and Connection and Companionship Therapy. I had a history of childhood trauma, depression, PTSD, addiction, and financial problems. I was in an abusive relationship for two years, which left me feeling isolated and alone. I turned to drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism, which only made things worse.

 

That's when I met Corinne, my practitioner. She helped me develop a treatment plan that included individual therapy, group therapy, TDCT, and mentoring. I was hesitant about TDCT at first, but Corinne explained how it could help me connect with my body and emotions, and I decided to give it a try.

 

Over time, I started to feel more connected to myself and others. I developed healthier coping mechanisms and reduced my reliance on medication. I also started to rebuild my relationships with family and friends, who noticed a positive change in me. I felt more confident and hopeful about my future, and I knew that I had Corinne and Positive Peer Mentoring to thank for that.

 

I made significant progress. I removed my drug and alcohol use, found a new job, and started working towards paying off my debts. I also started dating again and felt more comfortable with touch and intimacy. I learned how to identify my triggers and cope with them in a healthy way. The Cuddle therapy helped me feel safe and supported, which was a new experience for me. I had never felt comfortable with touch before, but the therapist's gentle and non-judgmental approach had helped me overcome my fears.

 

Overall, my experience with TDCT and Cuddle therapy was positive, and I am grateful for the support I received. The therapy helped me connect with my body and emotions, which had been difficult for me in the past. It also helped me overcome my addiction and financial problems. I highly recommend Positive Peer Mentoring and Corinne to anyone who is struggling with emotional health issues. They truly care about their clients and provide a safe and supportive environment for healing and growth. Thank you, Corinne and Positive Peer Mentoring, for helping me on my journey to recovery.

Hi, my name is Alex and I'm a 19-year-old non-binary individual pursuing a degree in psychology. I've been struggling with anxiety and depression for a while now, and it's been tough. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I don't feel accepted or understood by my family and peers when it comes to my gender identity.

 

I've also experienced a lot of bullying and harassment throughout my childhood and adolescence, which has made things even harder. I've been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder, and I experience symptoms like panic attacks, low mood, and difficulty sleeping.

 

But things have been getting better since I started working with Positive Perr Mentoring. I've been seeing a mentor named Corinne Pulliam for the past six months, and it's been really helpful. We've been working on developing a greater sense of self-acceptance and self-love, and I've been learning strategies for managing my anxiety and depression, like mindfulness techniques and self-care practices.

 

It hasn't been easy, but I've been really impressed with my own resilience and determination. I've sought out therapy and support from Positive Perr Mentoring, and I've been working hard to develop coping mechanisms and self-care practices that help me manage my symptoms.

 

Through my work with Positive Perr Mentoring, I've gained a greater sense of confidence and empowerment. I feel more equipped to navigate the challenges of my daily life, and I'm hopeful about my future. With the support of my mentor and the Positive Perr Mentoring community, I'm committed to continuing my journey towards mental wellness and self-discovery.

 

I can't say enough good things about my experience with Positive Perr Mentoring. It's been transformative. I've found a safe and supportive space to explore my identity and work through my mental health challenges. My mentor, Corinne, has been amazing - she's non-judgmental and compassionate, and I feel like she really sees and hears me in our sessions.

 

I've also participated in group sessions and workshops offered by Positive Perr Mentoring, and they've been really valuable in building connections with others who share similar experiences and struggles.

 

My family has noticed a positive change in me since I started working with Positive Perr Mentoring. I'm more confident and assertive in my communication, and I've developed a greater sense of self-worth and self-love.

 

Looking towards the future, I'm excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. I'm considering pursuing a career in mental health advocacy, and I hope to use my own experiences to help others who are struggling with similar challenges. With the support of Positive Perr Mentoring, I'm confident that I can achieve my goals and live a fulfilling and meaningful life.

 

Overall, my experience with Positive Perr Mentoring has been positive and empowering. I feel more confident in my ability to navigate my mental health challenges, and I'm grateful for the support and guidance provided by my mentor.
