Because we take client privacy* extremely seriously, names have been withheld and counsellor names have been changed to "my counsellor" to protect identity.
The telephone call at the beginning of the process was extremely useful as I was matched with a counsellor who was perfect for me. I'd had a bad experience with counselling when I lived in London but this was completely different. My counsellor was fantastic, giving me the confidence to make changes and see things in a more positive way which really improved my life. I'm so grateful.
"My counsellor made me feel safe, respected and listened to. I was really worried about coming for counselling, but she couldn't have done more to help me relax and get out of the big black hole I had got myself in."
"My counsellor was amazing. I can't recommend her highly enough."
"I didn't really buy into the whole idea of counselling, but my wife persuaded me to go. I'm so glad I did. I probably still wouldn't tell all my mates that I went, but I don't know how I would have coped without it now."
"My GP offered me anti-depressants, which I didn't want to take. My employer offered to pay for some counselling, which really helped."
"I had a difficult relationship with my employer, which was really getting me down. My counsellor gave me the confidence to change my situation and now I'm doing well in my new job!"
"I will never be cured, but my counsellor has helped me to see things more positively and given me the tools to manage my condition going forward."
"CCC are very discreet. I didn't want my partner to know I was having counselling, but they only took my income into account when assessing how much I could afford to pay, and never phoned me on my home number, only my mobile. Thanks."
"I was referred for counselling from my GP but had to wait 16 weeks for an appointment. My CCC counsellor fitted me in within a week and helped a lot."
"I didn't know what to expect but I knew I needed some help. My counsellor was fantastic. I still have dark days but counselling has really helped get my life back on track. I would advise anyone to try it."
