Here's what my clients say:
I needed counselling and feel that it gave me the opportunity to talk through the feelings and issues I have openly. I greatly appreciate the service I received and may well use it again if I feel that I need to in the future. Andy
You helped me to get to know myself and to give me the strength to cope with my grief. Counselling has helped me to open up and talk about the way I feel rather than keeping my feelings to myself. Thank you. Cheryl
‘You have helped me look forward to the future.’ Mary
‘I explored many emotions. You allowed me to cry, laugh and shout and I always felt you were carrying me.’ Paul
