Take testimonials with a pinch of salt. This is because one person's experience will always be different to another's - we are all different, and we all like, and dislike different things. I urge you not to go on testimonials when choosing a counsellor, but instead to go with who you like the 'sound' of. Just because a Dr. has a good 'bedside manner', it doesn't make them a good Dr.
To publish all testimonials spanning over 14 years would be too much, so to keep it simple there are three:
- "If I am totally honest I was not convinced that counselling would help me as I am not in my comfort zone talking about myself, I could not of been more wrong...It became very apparent that my fears were daft!! I was worried that I would be judged, but you were totally non-judgmental and made me feel safe in disclosing things very personal to me". A Client
- "Counselling has transformed my existence and it doesn't bear thinking about how I would of been without it and I shall always be grateful". A Client
- "I really think I understand myself a lot better after the sessions with you, and it was so useful to talk through my problems in a safe environment with someone completely non-judgmental. I have taken a lot from what I learned, and so far so good, everything is now looking much brighter for me! If I ever feel I need any more support I will certainly get in touch, and likewise I will definitely be recommending you if any of my friends are looking for some counselling. So thank you once again, it has been such a valuable experience for me". A Client
