comments from clients

“It has made me feel more in control of my life”

“It was fun, I looked forward to each meeting”

“Made me look at things differently, and feel better about myself”

“It made things clearer and helped me to accept things that had happened in my past and move on”

“Helped me find some perspective”

'When I told Jude all about what was bothering me I began to listen to myself and really hear what I was feeling. With her help I did begin to untangle things. I could see different options and possibilities at last - a way forward. I always felt the choices were mine and this made me feel more confident and proud of myself.......there is nothing better than feeling that someone is really hearing what you are saying and that they understand and support you.....'CB
