Testimonials

"I found it to be a completely safe and comfortable environment in which to explore some long standing issues. I feel much less fragile now having explored some ways of being that make life more pleasant. Thank you for the wisdom and kindness you showed me throughout."
Sally
"I gained more perspective and felt better being able to talk to someone removed. The counselling was relaxing and therapeutic. It was very good to have a calming and logical person to talk to. I found it very supportive. Thank you very much."
Rachel
"When I first arrived I was struggling very much with day to day life; I had realised my depression and felt very alone. I felt friends and family did not understand and even though I knew I needed help to get through this patch, I lacked the confidence to start. After contacting you it made everything slightly easier and after the many weeks of you listening and giving friendly helpful advice, I finally feel like me again. I could not have got through this without your caring and thoughtful guidance, and the whole experience will stay with me throughout my life. Thank you!"
Charlotte
"Kate has helped empower me to notice and check my unhelpful thought patterns and behaviour. I have made real progress. THANK YOU KATE!"
Amy
"I was at a very low period when I began counselling, with extremely low confidence and self-esteem. I have really valued being in a safe place where I can be completely honest about my thoughts, feelings, and experiences without fear of judgement. I have definitely made progress and found Kate’s strategies for dealing with difficult situations and emotions very helpful."
'C'
"Kate provided a safe space for us to openly talk about issues we weren't able to resolve on our own. Kate was completely neutral and allowed us both to share from our individual perspective. Whilst we've still got some work to do together, Kate has given us the tools we need to improve our relationship going forward,…and we have started communicating in a much better way."
E and S
"I no longer feel teary and emotional in the way I did a few months ago. Talking things through and discussing my anxiety and ways to deal with it certainly helped my general well-being. Kate is very easy to talk to and has a lovely way about her, giving subtle but effective guidance."

"I must admit that I wasn't really convinced that counselling would help when I first 'signed up' but it definitely did. However I do think that was largely down to you as a person as well as a professional."

"I am able to manage now where before I wasn't coping and can challenge my anxious thoughts."

"Kate was always very calm, professional and pleasant in her manner. You were aware that she continued to think about you and your situation from session to session and so was prepared with some factsheet, suggestion etc. when you saw her next. This gave reassurance that she was doing her best to support and help you for your ultimate "cure"."

"You have been very understanding throughout. I have felt in a safe, calm environment and have been able to speak to you about anything that pops into my head. I have enjoyed attending on a weekly basis and feel the sessions have been well structured, and the handouts have been appropriate and useful."
