I have developed a Tool which records the client's feelings at the start of therapy. This enables me to measure the effectiveness of my therapeutic programme in a dynamic and powerful way throughout the process. This is hard evidence that my programme of healing and change really works. All it takes is full participation in the programme.

Generalised anxiety disorder (or GAD) is characterised by excessive exaggerated anxiety, anger, and worry about everyday life events with no obvious reasons. People with symptoms of generalised anxiety disorder tend to always expect disaster and can't stop worrying about health, money, family, work, or school. In people with GAD, the worry often is unrealistic or out of proportion for the situation. Daily life becomes a constant state of worry, fear, and dread. Eventually, the anxiety so dominates the person's thinking that it interferes with daily functioning, including work, school, social activities, and relationships. Often anger is an outward sign of anxiety and stress. People who suffer with Autism often suffer with acute anxiety and fear.
