What my clients say
I first met Andy via the NHS when I was referred by my GP. Originally, I had requested that I see a female counsellor due to personal reasons that involved mistrust with men. My GP was not able to follow the initial request due to the length of the waiting list, therefore they had asked me if I would not mind in giving Andy a try.
At first, I was very sceptical, but Andy was empathetic, patient and engaging, with a great show of professionalism. Andy allowed me to talk freely with confidence and at my own pace. I have learnt to identify my personal needs and to respect myself, allowing me the time and space to come to these realisations and to believe in them myself. This has helped me cope with my mental health and improve my outlook on life.
Thanks to Andy, I now have the confidence to assess situations with an open mind and make decisions that are right for me; allowing me to have the courage to walk away from issues that I would not have the strength to do before. I am eternally grateful for Andy’s humanistic approach and would highly recommend Andy.

Andy, I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help and expertise in my recovery over the past ten weeks. You have transformed me into a mindset that I thought only existed in dreams, it's like a magic pill where all my cravings, stress and anxiety are no longer a part of my life. Thank you so much.

I wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me over the last few weeks. I've found myself in a very new, very positive place. The best way I can describe it is that I felt as though I was carrying a great deal of emotional baggage, and now that I've put the suitcase down, everything in my life feels lighter. I definitely feel full of hope and genuinely excited to see what is to come, and when I least expect it. The total unknown of time is something that I have struggled with for years, but the unknown is becoming my new best friend. In a strange way, I think the unfamiliarity of the future brings clarity - perfect!
