Recent Testimonials

“I just wanted to write a quick note and say thank you again for the counselling sessions we did this time last year. I have to say that whilst I was very positive about the result we achieved last year I was nervous about getting to the Autumn time in 2021. I did wonder if I would dip back into the well worn cycle of pain and negative thought patterns. HOWEVER I am pleased to report I have not and this autumn has been one of the most positive I can remember. It seems almost miraculously in some ways, and an incredible testament to the power of CBT as a method of treatment. Thanks again”
