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.
