Whilst I am happy to share with you the comments of recent clients, in order to protect their anonymity I have removed their names and any distinguishing references.
Life is full of ups and downs and the unexpected downs can be hard to cope with. I first consulted Fiona in desperation as I was struggling to make sense of events in my life. I knew I needed to do something. To be honest, I wasn’t convinced of the value of counselling. I have lots of good relationships with people and I talk…a lot. So I couldn’t see how talking to a counsellor could be any different.
It has been a good few years since I finished seeing Fiona, but the effects of her support have been so long standing it is truly worth a mention. Having tried many different therapists over the journey of my anxiety and depression, none of them gave me any more relief than that of a sticking plaster. Fiona gave me life tools to adjust my thinking and most importantly of all to be kind to myself and follow my own path not the one expected of me by others. So thank you Fiona. I start my PhD this October, I am now on a path of fulfilment I never though possible, I’m so grateful for what you enabled me to do!
'Fiona, I have just had a lovely holiday. Thanks to you! I used the coping strategies you taught me and guess what... no panics!'
'Just wanted to say a big thank you for helping me find ME again, it was like being lost and you guided me back to the light. I know it’s your job but I can never thank you enough. I know I've still got a way to go but I now have faith that I will get there.'
'My counsellor was very welcoming and understanding. I have found counselling very helpful and feel better within myself. Thank you Fiona.'
