SAMPLE FEEDBACK FROM CLIENTS
It was very reassuring to talk through my fears and anxieties in a calming atmosphere with a very kind and understanding counsellor. I have gained personal insights and learned coping strategies and am able to function better day by day.

Client with high anxiety levels affecting his marriage and confidence at work .
Mei helped me to find a greater sense of peace with my feelings after losing my mum, honouring mum's memory and our bond whilst at the same time acknowledging that grief and loss will always be part of life. I felt extremely comfortable with Mei: I felt heard, understood and accepted. She gently supported me to explore alternative perspectives where my thinking had become 'stuck'. I took particular comfort from the mindfulness and visualisation exercises which helped me in managing very difficult and upsetting memories of my mum's illness. These sessions have been an important part of my journey in grief and I am very glad to have known this wonderfully compassionate and skilled professional.

I would like to thank Mei for being understanding; I was not looking forward to counselling at first. It has enabled me to express myself and explore my feelings. Now I understand the root causes of my problems and feel better about myself.
Client who was signed off work for 2 weeks as a result of harassment
Mei was an excellent professional who was patient and understanding and has made a real impact. Counselling has allowed me to express and explore my feelings about my OCD and I have gained insight and understanding as well as coping strategies. I have learned how to ease up on my checking behaviours. I've regained my old self and my family and I are in a much better place now.
Client who presented with severe OCD behaviours.
I really appreciate help and understanding Mei has given me over the last 6 weeks. I am able now to express my grief instead of bottling it up, and the mindfulness techniques have helped reduce my anxieties. I am closer to my family now and it has helped me return to work quicker and cope more efficiently at work.
