Counselling helped me understand myself better, how to take a step back and look at the situation I am in.
My counsellor offered me something I had never had before – unconditional, trustworthy support. She helped me to find myself.
My counsellor gave me the opportunity to talk about things without being judged or being given advice. I realised my counsellor was un-shockable and that felt good.
Sharing what I have been through has made a world of difference, like a huge weight has been lifted from me. I feel back in control of my life.
I didn't realise how much I needed to talk until someone offered to listen. Counselling has been a life changing experience for me.
I liked the freedom to talk about anything without any worry of being betrayed. I felt safe – I was with someone I could trust.
I was very sceptical about going to Number 22 but feel I have benefited immensely by talking about my problems.
