Review for Wives Self Help Foundation Inc 205 Smylie Times Bldg, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have suffered with depression, anxiety, panic disorder. The pain I felt was unbearable. I was at the last straw in life- I had no choice but to start going to therapy. From what I hear many police officers and fire fighters go to Wives Self help. My girlfriend, a wife of a police officer, told me to try it out-her and her husband attented for couple's therapy (needless to say they are still happily married). I was scared, didn't know what to expect. The staff was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. The girls up front always have a smile on their face and are always willing to help you in any was possible & that just made me feel even better, seeing other people happy and smiling. It has been over a year now and I still attend counceling every two weeks. I've learned to handle things that I never thought I could-without taking anxiety medication. Wives Self help has changed my life and I will always be thankful to my girlfriend who referred me to this agency. Wives Self Help has changed my life in so many ways.. all positive.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

so many different ways. All positive, I must say!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Honestly. I can not think of anything. Staff is friendly and professional-they don't judge you. I am stumped!

How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

Very Well

How did you find this group?

A friend- a very good friend!

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

To think positively. Don't worry about the small things in life. Understand that therapy doesn't "heal" you in one session. It takes time & as long as you are willing to accept that and make positive changes in your life-your life will get better and this agency will help you.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
