A friend told me about counselling to help with feeling depressed and sad. These feelings came on as if they were out of my control. Talking about these feelings in counselling and finding out some of the reasons why it happened, helped me to get back on track again. Counselling has been a great experience and people who know me have noticed a big difference and mention that something has lifted from me. I looked forward to weekly sessions and knew it was one place where I could be completely honest about everything. This is exactly what I needed to heal again. Thanks for all your help, support and understanding. Debs

I AM A KEY WORKER AND HAD A VERY TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE EARLY ON IN THE FIRST LOCKDOWN. I WAS LITERALLY WAKING UP AT NIGHTIME WITH COLD SWEATS AND PANIC ATTACKS. THIS WAS AFFECTING EVERYTHING FROM MY WORK, HOME AND FAMILY LIFE AND MADE ME FEARFUL TO STEP OUT OF THE DOOR IN CASE I HAD A SUDDEN ONSET OF PANIC ATTACKS. MY WORK WAS REALLY AFFECTED QUITE BADLY AND I HAD TO HAVE TIME OFF BECAUSE OF THE EFFECTS OF MY TRAUMA. AFTER AN INITIAL MEETING WITH THE COUNSELLOR I EXPLAINED THE SITUATION BEHIND THE TRAUMA AND WASNT REALLY SURE WHAT COULD BE DONE TO HELP. MARC EXPLAINED HOW PANIC ATTACKS WORK FOLLOWING TRAUMA AND THEN GAVE ME A COUPLE OF HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS TO TRY OUT BETWEEN THE SESSIONS. BY THE SECOND SESSION MY PANIC ATTACKS HAD COMPLETELY DISSAPEARED AND I WAS SLEEPING NORMALLY THROUGH THE NIGHT. I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE WORK WE DID. I HAD SOME ISSUES WITH ZOOM AT FIRST BUT MARC TALKED ME THROUGH IT PATIENTLY. COUNSELLING GAVE ME BACK MY LIFE AND I WAS ABLE TO RESUME WORK AGAIN AND SPEND TIME DOING THE FAMILY WALKS IN LOCKDOWN IN BETWEEN. J.U

I WAS GOING THROUGH A VERY DIFFICULT PATCH WITH WORK-RELATED ISSUES, AS WELL AS A BIG TRANSFORMATIONAL TIME IN MY LIFE, SO I SOUGHT COUNSELLING ON RECCOMENDATION. I DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT, BUT WAS HOPING THAT IT WOULD GET ME OUT OF A VERY STRESSFUL AND DEPRESSED PLACE I WAS IN AT THE TIME. OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, COUNSELLING WITH MARC LITERALLY CHANGED MY LIFE, AND I AM NOT USUALLY SOMEONE WHO RELIES ON ANYONE ELSE TO SORT MY PROBLEMS OUT. AS A MALE, AND PROTECTOR OF MY FAMILY, I WASNT USED TO DROPPING MY GUARD, BUT I WAS GREETED BY MARC WHO WAS EASY TO GET ON WITH AND MADE ME FEEL VALUED IN MY THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS, AS WELL AS IT BEING OKAY TO GET IN TOUCH WITH MY FEELINGS. A LOT OF MEN FIND THIS AWKWARD TO TALK OPENLY WITH FEELINGS BUT IT REALLY HELPED ME GET MY HEAD CLEAR.. WE WORKED OUT A PLAN TO FOLLOW AND UNEXPECTEDLY, WHAT I INITIALLY CAME INTO COUNSELLING FOR, WORKING WITH MARC HELPED ME TO REALISE THAT THIS WASNT THE REAL ISSUE, IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE PLAYING OUT, WHICH HELPED ME TO SEE THE PATTERN. I COULD GO ON PRAISING THE WORK WE DID, BUT I CAN SUMMARISE THE COUNSELLING EXPERIENCE AS LIFE-CHANGING, UPLIFTING, EMOTIONAL AND REALLY FELT SUPPORTED BY SOMEONE WHO GENUINELY CARED. I WILL ALWAYS APPRECIATE THIS SUPPORT AS I TOOK A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PATH TO MY LIFE THAT EMPOWERED NOT ONLY ME, BUT THOSE WHO ARE DEAREST TO ME, MY FAMILY! THANKS AGAIN (C.DEL)

Reason for ending therapy: Issues are now resolved - Can I please add that my counsellor really helped me recover from a very dark place. He listened, cared, helped me see what a toxic environment I was working in and most of all, helped me get back to the positive me. Thanking him did not seem enough when we ended our last session. LB

During the pandemic I experienced traumatic events additional to the distress COVID was also creating. These events were heavily burdening me so I had very challenging processes and thoughts to deal with, some days I felt overwhelmed by emotions; anger, stress and anxiety about the present and the future. I did not know where to turn initially so I did a course of CBT which helped and gave me the confidence to seek counselling. Resilience Counselling (Marc) gave me the opportunity to talk through the problems impartially which was greatly needed, Marc was extremely compassionate, supportive, very genuine and easy to talk to. He gave me the courage to tackle the issues in smaller steps and to learn how to change my way of thinking from negative to positive, to look at life from different angles, he gave me back the confidence to go about daily life and its situations which I desperately needed. I am now so much better and no longer feel overwhelmed with anxiety together with all the other emotions. I would not be in this position now if I hadn't sought my counsellor who I would highly recommend and I can't thank him enough for all the help and support he has given me through extremely challenging times.
