Alongside our private practice, we also regularly work within the NHS.
Below are some of the testimonials we have received on the NHS Choices website.
“I’ve recently been receiving counselling and can’t speak highly enough as to the way the counsellor has helped me. Over the years I’ve seen a few counsellors and didn’t put a lot of faith in the process but I’ve found this one to be very different. They listen intently, never seem to judge and always seem to understand exactly what it is I’m saying. In a relatively short space of time I’ve dealt with issues that I’ve struggled with for years and so I just want to say a very big thank you.”
“The surgery recommended that I attended counselling sessions and it has been invaluable. I cannot recommend this enough. I’m so thankful for the care I’ve received and it’s reassuring to know that they are there and ready to help. Thank you!”
“I have attended a course of counselling sessions and wanted to write a review as I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity. To be able to come once a week and talk in complete confidence to someone who listens so attentively, never judges or forms opinions has been more helpful than I ever imagined it would or could be. I have felt so comfortable and able to discuss any issues. It has felt like such a positive experience. I feel ready to face the challenges ahead with strategies up my sleeve. It wasn’t clear to me before how much I needed the counselling but I can now see just how much I needed it and how wonderful it has been. Couldn’t recommend more highly.”
“I have had help for my anxiety on a weekly/fortnightly basis, and I’m so thankful that it was them I started seeing and I truly recommend them to anyone that suffers from this problem. Without them I wouldn’t be overcoming it as well as I have. So I thank them for the help I have received and will carry on receiving. They are doing a great job.”
“I’ve got a job! I don’t know how to say thanks in a way that truly explains how much my life has changed. I’ve suffered from anxiety for quite a few years and couldn’t motivate myself to do anything. I don’t know how but you gave me the confidence to believe that I could get a job and that I deserved one. I’m really happy for the first time in years and my anxiety is gone! Counselling was the best thing I have ever done so thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“Well above what I expected. I saw my GP for depression and he suggested I may benefit from seeing the in-house counsellor. I didn’t expect a lot so didn’t think much more of it but the next day I received a call from Mark saying he could fit me in and booking me an appointment for 2 days later. Again I didn’t expect much but turned up anyway. I couldn’t have been more surprised to be faced with someone who instead of saying they could make me better just promised to listen. Brilliant! Far from just listening (although you did that exceptionally well) you gave me the room to talk about my problems and gave me the faith to believe I could overcome them. I don’t know what or how you did it but I’m just thankful you did. 8 sessions later I can’t believe how much better I feel. Thankyou, you’ve changed everything.”
