'My counsellor is by far the
best counsellor I have ever had. In fact, she is in a
completely different league. She has a great mixture of
warmth and professionalism and provided an extremely secure
space where I could simply be myself. Eternal gratitude!'
'I was a little worried when
I first started going to see my counsellor as I didn't know
what I should say or if we were going to have enough to talk
about. She put me at ease so quickly and really 'got' me. I
suddenly found it easy to talk about things that made me
feel uncomfortable. She managed to get things out of me
without being pushy and could often put them in a way I
couldn't. If everything was jumbled in my head, she knew
how to word it in a way that made sense. I never would have
imagined that talking to someone would have the effect it
did. It allowed me to accept certain things and acknowledge
my feelings. She helped me to learn to communicate more
effectively with the people in my life and taught me
strategies and skills to help me when people try to hurt
me. I feel more self assured, confident and happy - thank
'I have developed ways to manage
my problems more with which I had sought help.'
'I have been impressed with
both the counsellor and the service.'
'Very pleased and grateful for
the help. Excellent organisation and helpful service.
Counsellor was very professional and I felt very comfortable
talking to her. Thank you very much. This is an excellent
charity and I hope more people get the opportunity to seek
help if they need it.'
'I had never had counselling
before and I really did not know what to expect. The
initial assessment was very helpful and supportive and then
the sessions were excellent. My counsellor was so lovely
and so incisive that I ended up talking about things I had
never talked about before. I started off feeling so anxious
and unlike myself and have finished feeling back to my
normal self. I would absolutely recommend the service to
anyone, and if all your counsellors are as good as mine, it
is a service that is second to none. Please pass on my
thanks to everyone who makes this such an exceptional
'My counsellor was extremely
supportive and an amazing listener and made huge efforts to
re-arrange times to accommodate me. I benefitted from my
time with her.'
'The counselling saw me
through a very difficult period of my life. I am most
grateful for the excellent counselling, for the sympathetic
way in which my initial responses were dealt with. Will
miss our weekly sessions but it has ended at the right
'Fantastic service and one I
would recommend to others'
