Clients' Comments

Here's a sample of genuine, unsolicited comments that I've received.  Each one is from a different former client:

'I’m writing to thank you profoundly for the help you’ve given me in our sessions’.

‘I know it’s time to move on, on my own’.

‘You’ve helped me feel liberated and justified and healed through our sessions’.

'Thank you so much again.  Without wanting to exaggerate, I know that I wouldn't be feeling as strong as I am now, if it hadn't been for your interventions.'

'The understanding I now have will help me for the rest of my life’.

'As a counsellor you have integrity and courage, and you also have a fine mind'.

'I wanted to write and say thank you.  You pretty much solely supported me through an incredibly tricky time, and I am extremely grateful to you for that.  I know that the channelled self-reflection that you encouraged will be a really helpful device for the future, and I'm feeling so much stronger off the back of it.'

'Thank you for making a huge difference to my life'.

‘I’d like to say thank you for all the support you have provided me with, over the last year and a half’.

‘You’ve helped me pull back the blinds, and open the windows’.

'In the 6 or 8 months since our sessions finished, my life has gone from strength to strength; and I am still as content now as I was all those months ago when I left counselling.  You are one of a handful of people responsible, so for that I am extremely grateful.'

'Many thanks for everything you taught me and helped me achieve.  It was a genuinely life-changing experience, and to some degree I owe you my life.'

'Thank you for the support, the guidance and the kindness you have shown me in the last year.  Thank you for your patience.  I would not have achieved so much, if it had not been for your encouragement and your help.  I send you all my thanks, with my warmest wishes.'

Your help has been incredible, I feel better than ever.  Thank you.

Thanks so much for all your help over the last few months.  You were so patient and understanding and I'm in a much better place for it.

It has been quite a journey!  Thanks for holding my hand along the way.  I can't thank you enough.

Last Monday it felt to me as if I had reached (. . .) the resolution that I was hoping for - an ability to look inward and find value in myself.  A hugely important step and part of my life.  The sessions with you have helped me immensely. 

What I found astonishing, on reflection after each session, was that often I had expressed my feelings (. . .) for the first time.  That just by itself has been a massive help.

I will end by saying again, thank you!  I valued the sessions and your room was always a welcome haven to step into, and your presence very comforting.

I can’t thank you enough for all the help you have given (my daughter) over the last year.  Her confidence has been restored and I know she is in a much better place.  Your help has been invaluable.  Huge thanks again!

Thank you so much for your time working with (our student), you have had such a positive and long lasting impact on her and she is now settling into university.

I came to Carole after the sudden suicide of a dear friend.  The first thing she asked me to do was to tell her about him.  From then on each question and conversation was exactly what I needed to hear and think through.  I left every session feeling so refreshed and capable of processing my complex emotions.  I felt like Carole was always on the same page as me and able to understand and work through my thoughts and concerns as thoughtfully as accurately as possible.  Whether the session felt light or heavy she always shed the perfect light through my grieving process.

Carole is a very good listener, and really helped me to get an insight into my issues, and work through them.

Carole's been great from day one.  (. . .)  It was the first time for me and as a therapist she did help as best as she could with impeccable professionalism.  I would recommend her to anyone.

Carole was extremely easy to talk to.  She listens and provides helpful suggestions and is very caring and professional.

Carole was very calm and caring, she quickly identified the causes of my problem and worked with me to build up my self esteem and overcome my anger, relationship and depression issues.  I feel a new person since seeing Carole, and have had a positive upturn in my life and well being.

Thank you so much for supporting our son (and us) during this challenging time.  It is very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for your understanding and support over the last months.  I have really valued your insight and guidance, and am much happier for it!

Just wanted to let you know I got my results today (. . .).  While I'm disappointed with it I'll be okay (. . .).  I will use this to motivate me to make the most of my gap year, and to really work out what it is I want to do.  Thank you for all of your help, it's made a world of difference.

Hope you are well!  Remember me :)  Well, things got a bit harder after we last spoke, and darker, and more intense until finally I broke through, solved the issues, healed my childhood trauma and am out the other side with some successful businesses, able to use my energy for productive things now.  I must thank you for all the insights.  It was great to have you to talk to.  (. . .)  I am writing regarding a dear friend of mine who could really do with someone to talk to.  I would be thrilled if I could connect you two.

Thank you so much for supporting XXXXXX (and us) during this challenging time.  It is very much appreciated.

This is the most fruitful therapy I've had, so thank you!

Thank you so much for sharing your warm light, guidance and wisdom with me.  I know it’s your job, but I felt truly heard and understood.  This has helped me immensely. 

I am looking forward to finding my path and becoming my own person more and more.  Hopefully leaving generational traumas behind.  Always staying self-aware and reflective, and working on myself . . .

If trauma/behaviours etc come up again when I have kids one day, I shall seek counselling again.
