Name: Gareth, 14 years old, High Functioning Autism
What was the primary reason you consulted us?
The main reason was that I was too angry and very violent.
How have I benefited from care?
My life has changed because I feel much more relaxed and less tense. I am more aware as I turn angry and I don’t hurt mum a lot than I used to. When I get angry I don’t take it out at my mum and I tell her what has been happening in words although they may be angry shouty words.
What improvements or changes have you seen in your symptoms?
I have improved on my anger. I get less angry. I feel better about myself. I used to feel very angry in a hurty way but I don’t do it very often so that makes me feel good about myself. I think I handle stress better, I talk to mum more and I chill myself out by going on the computer or watching TV.
Why do you want to continue care?
I want to continue because I like being relaxed after my treatments. I would probably want some more confidence with making friends.
