inspiring and strengthening

Clare made me feel immediately comfortable and relaxed enough to open up to her without feeling judged. She listened with understanding and gently guided me to accept that changes to my habitual mindset will make me feel different within and in turn I will be able to achieve a more balanced and contented life. She also made some realistic suggestions on how to achieve this that I found very helpful. I found the session inspiring and strengthening.

I didn’t feel silly…

Having had no previous counselling, we decided to try it to see if it would help our situation as life over the last few years had become very busy. With having so many children and three Grandchildren who have all had problems at times with some being more challenging than others. We felt we were taking each other for granted and thought it would be good to talk to someone who didn't know us to see if they could help. I found Clare to be very helpful. I didn't feel silly and she made me feel at ease and comfortable. And someone who understood where I was coming from. I feel that our life is back on track and the future is more certain.
