“I was in a dark place that I no longer am. I honestly think that Erjing was a big part of me not giving up on myself. Without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am eternally thankful.”

      "In therapy, she pushes me to jump into the uncertainty, but she also doesn’t overdo it. She has helped me tremendously on encountering fears that I would never think I am capable of encountering.

        She gives me space and patience in therapy and she’s able to understand me well, wherever it is that I am coming from.

       She understands there are no negative emotions, but there are emotions that are more difficult, which is a huge factor in recovery too, to feel whatever it is that you are feeling.

       All in all, I wouldn’t be where I am now in recovery without her significant help! "

       我和尔婧进行了一年半多的咨询,在这里我学到了很多从没见过的解决问题的技巧和方法,也解开了我很多年的困惑,原来我一直有思维强迫,现在我可以很好的和它相处,并不害怕它了。尔婧让我更相信循证治疗的必要性,对于强迫症最好的方法就是暴露疗法和接纳承诺疗法也希望更多的强迫患者能了解与学习,让勇于暴露成为我们的一种生活态度。
     尔婧咨询师是一个有温情很体贴但同时又足够理性和聪明的咨询师,咨询进展中遇到困难时,她提出的建议都很专业很受用,她总是站在我的角度思考问题,在这里我没有遇到过尴尬和不适。对于我来说,我找了很久的咨询师,强迫又是很小众的病,要找到合适的疗法又要找到匹配的咨询师真的非常难,我认为遇到尔婧对我来说是人生中幸运的事情~
