“I feel like a completely different person after having counselling with Kate. Kate has been so helpful and friendly, I am now more confident and able to control my anxiety. "
"The sessions have been very useful and thought provoking, enabling me to learn. I have felt listened to and supported. Overall these sessions have changed my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
"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"."
"Working with Kate gave me the time and space to examine my situation and come to a much clearer understanding which allowed me to move forward successfully. Thanks once again."
"I really appreciate all your help over the past few months. Your sessions have been invaluable to me."
"Today I met a friend who has been seeing you recently and I want to say thank you. You have made such a change in how she is feeling and seeing things. I honestly believe had she not been to see you over the weeks I wouldn't have this friend today. She spoke of you and how you did not judge or make her feel inadequate and what she feels is normal, I believe she needed your help more than she realised. Finally, my friend is now accepting her situation and although has a long way to go, without your help this would not have been possible. If you can get through to her a closed book you are wonderful at what you do. Again THANK YOU"
"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
"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."
