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
Thank you again,

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!

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.
"Great service. I have always found it to be extremely helpful. The whole concept of the Counselling Directory has been so very beneficial in building up my practice."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people at Counselling Directory that I have contacted and the help received in trying to raise my profile to attract more business. I would also like to praise the Happiful magazine having enjoyed it..." read more
