"My life and family relationships are so much improved now and as a consequence, my partner and I are getting married next year. "
"It encouraged me to examine the issues I had in a more objective way. I found it to be an excellent support mechanism for me and it played a major role in helping to return to the outgoing and confident person I was before."
"Having never thought about counselling before, I took a leap of faith and contacted Cheryl. She made me feel at ease and comfortable and listened with empathy as we explored the issues that I had."
"Ever since finishing the sessions with Cheryl I am able to get on with my life more comfortably knowing the tools she gave me to deal with situations are always at hand to help at low points that may occur during the rest of my life."
"I never imagined that a course of counselling sessions would have such a positive affect on my well being, family life and work life. I truly feel that I walked into counselling as one person and left after my sessions as a much better person."
