Dear Mick,

I want to express my sincere gratitude for all the help and
understanding you gave me throughout my therapy sessions. I came to you
when I was in an extremely dark place with my feelings of despair and
fatalism regarding the surgery that was looming. I decanted all my
thoughts and emotions into you. You helped me understand exactly why I
had these dark feelings and thoughts.
With hypnotherapy and your positive words I became more rational and
able to proceed with the much needed surgery which I went along to with
fresh confidence and hope. I am absolutely sure had I never found you to
help me I definitely would not have had the surgery. May also add that I
felt safe and relaxed in your presence. You brought out the best in me.
I will continue to keep in contact as I feel happy each time I leave my
therapy sessions.

Thank you again,

CC

As a registered Psychotherapist, it's vital that I feel supported in my private practice and I have found that over the years, the Counselling Directory far exceeded my expectations. On this occasion, I phoned to reinstate my supervision profile and to change my payment plan. Once you phone them, they answer the phone straight away and both of my requests were carried out straight away. A perfect example to banks, telecoms, energy providers etc. as to how to provide an efficient and effective service.

I joined the Counselling Directory recently and found it easy to navigate around the site. For me, it’s very user-friendly, and so far, I have received plenty of support to help with clarification and guidance around the site and how to maximise its potential. Thumbs up from me, I have received numerous client enquiries already which is very encouraging.

Counselling Directory were so helpful in terms of their technical assistance and advice when I first started a few months ago. I got straight through on the phone and they answered my questions immediately.

Due to the number of enquiries I’ve had through them I have reached my optimum number of clients much sooner than I expected! It has been incredible value (especially as I got one month for free!) compared to other directories I am on.

I also love the enquires booking facility that allows me to set a little time aside each week and clients book in a sort of appointment where we chat about what I offer and what they are looking for. Many of my clients have come via this route (it’s like having an electronic secretary!). Thank you for such great service!

I have used the Counselling Directory for a number of years now to advertise as a therapist. I find the site easy to navigate around and update, and have recently noticed an increase of enquiries from potential clients. I'm aware that there are a number of counselling advertising platforms on the market, so clearly, the Counselling Directory's search engine is high up there.

Joining Counselling Directory has exceeded my expectations. As a fairly new therapist, I put off joining for a while as I found my feet, but two days in I can say it is worth the investment. The website is clear and easy to use, and my profile was approved within a day. Emma was really helpful and even offered personalised advice to enhance my profile, which was followed up with a courtesy call. I have already had a client enquiry, and would definitely recommend Counselling Directory to other therapists.

As a senior accredited member of the BACP I was pleased to be able to advertise my skills and counselling service on The Counselling Directory website.

At a minimal cost I was able to receive queries from across the country which were appropriate to my fields of expertise. I came from a teaching background so initially I worked with children and families. I found that schools also accessed the website and from that, I gained employment in a number of different schools which I found interesting and rewarding. I went further in schools to develop courses and schemes including one which I named Talking Through Art which led to my giving a presentation at the BACP Conference. I believe other schools went on to take up this work too.

Through the Counselling Directory I also received work with children and adults with learning disabilities and I feel I made inroads into creating positive attitudes towards them.

As my career developed I went on to work with adults and gained employment with the charity Rethink Mental Illness.

So, all in all I have found that my connection with the Counselling Directory consolidated and developed my career. It gave me confidence to pursue and extend it.

I altered my profile as the years progressed and was pleased with the support I received in doing this. The website also changed as time went by and I was continually kept up to date.

Many thanks!
