“In my experience, counselling has been the single most effective intervention I have been able to use with my students and their parents. This service offers more than simply a person to talk to, it offers the right person to talk to. I have witnessed many of my students who have engaged with this service improve not only their ability to cope with stressful or deeply upsetting situations, but also and most importantly, I have seen them become visibly happier and more confident individuals. The parents who have used this service have commented that they have felt empowered by the sessions and many agree that it has changed their view of counselling and its effectiveness. In my opinion there is nothing more supportive than having someone share the weight from your shoulders and that is exactly what this service provides. The tailor made nature of the service allows it to guarantee a supportive, non judgemental and confidential service which you can trust.”

“Carol was very professional and friendly – I felt very reassured, comfortable and at ease from the very first session. It was a relief to speak to someone who knew what I was talking about and who reassured me that I wasn’t going mad! Carol helped me to think about what I was experiencing in a different way, from a more positive perspective. This encouraged me to start looking at myself in a different, more constructive way.”

“My daughter started counselling at the end of January 2012. This came after four years after losing her dad. She began to feel she was unable to cope. But with the help of the counsellor I could see my daughter grow stronger each week.”
