Mrs Mervelee Myers
To Whom It May Concern,
Mrs Myers attended #12counseling sessions at Talking Therapies London Borough of Southwark. She was referred to our service to receive treatment for #depression, which had occurred following a #stressful period at work.
Mrs Myers told me she had suffered with #chronicanxiety since she was a child. She said she had learned to manage the anxiety, but it did sometimes #affect her ability to #write as she has a #tremor in her hand. However, Mrs Myers said this had not affected her #work life. She said she had been able to #manage it and this was evidenced by her long #employment history with the company #5years prior to this recent incident.
Mrs Myers depression seems to have #arisen in the context of a difficult period at work.
She said she felt #unfairly treated and she could not understand how her #colleagues had come to form their opinions about her. Mrs Myers had found this experience to be extremely #distressing and eventually #resigned from her job, as she felt she had no #alternative. Following the loss of her job, Mrs Myers became increasingly depressed and she told me she had found it #difficult to take care of herself.
This has left Mrs Myers with low-confidence, particularly in her work life. Mrs Myers is #fearful of going back into work as she #anxious about being #mistreatedand going through a similar situation again. When she was first referred to the service her scores on the questionnaires measuring depression and anxiety were indicative of #severe depression and anxiety.
Over the course of treatment, we #explored the impact of Mrs Myers’ work situation and how it had affected her. We explored the impact of this situation on her #marriage, where Mrs Myers found it hard to #cope as a result of being #overwhelmed by the difficulties in her work life. Mrs Myers also said this had affected some of her #friendships. Mrs Myers said her family were her main #support, but this was only over the telephone due to the distance between them.
As a result of this difficult work situation, Mrs Myers understandably #struggled to cope with life. However, she has been #committed to working through her difficulties and has made #improvements to her #wellbeing over the course of her treatment. Only reporting #mild symptoms of depression and anxiety at the end of treatment.

Maybe LEYF Nurseries might like to go to the Employment Tribunal and EAT and own up to making them a fool across the world. If in doubt go to Dr Maria Hudson Research Paper for the Policy Studies Institute. Recommendations to Acas. I am listening to Sir Cliff Richards talking about his experiences with the BBC. Funnily enough, I am at peace with myself since the death of my mother from dementia.
