When looking for a counsellor, you want to know that you're going to be heard. Take a look at some of the great feedback I've had.
I hope you are well! it's been ages and I do apologise for not writing to you sooner. Our sessions helped me to get here.
So, some updates:
* In a new relationship, six months in - it's wonderful - he's wonderful, and I feel wonderful around him. It's full of respect, love and trust...no secrets and we really do tell eachother everything...good and bad-it's lovely!
*I was head-hunted for a dream job that I start 9 June- it's in the FemTech sector and focuses on improving women's lives -I am so excited to be part of something that really helps people!
* Averaging 89.25% for my MBA
* My Decree Absolute will be granted on 9 June
* Signed up for an intensive driving course and hope to pass my drivers on 8 June
It has been a crazy journey with a tremendous amount going.... I have really considered my choices each time and with some....stop considering them all together and just gone with it.
I am so happy. I just feel lucky, proud and happy. It's incredible when you learn with a little change of direction or just doing that really difficult impossible thing - your life will change.
I honestly mean it - thank you so much - you really did help me find myself again.
I hope you are keeping well and safe!
Ken was brilliant from the very first moment. He was intuitive and able to read between the lines of the words we said to understand the dynamics at play. He was supportive to both of us and held us to account when it was appropriate to do so. He was a great listening and we made strides in our relationship with each other as a result of his help. He was authentic and honest. I would highly recommend him and we may be back with him soon once we have completed the other part of our counselling journey.
Ken has an empathy and intuitive understanding that allows him to get to the root of the issue - his manner encourages openness and a comfortable environment in which to express difficult feelings. He was integral in helping us identify the issues that were causing the problems in our marriage and he created a safe space in which we could talk things through. I was skeptical of whether counselling sessions over Zoom would be effective but I was pleasantly surprised - the virtual environment did not create any barriers to success. Ken has a natural way about him that makes you feel valued and heard, and he encouraged this between me and my husband as well. The strategies he gave us are really helpful and he tailored his approach to suit our needs. I would use Ken again as I find it very easy to talk with him, he gives his full attention to the conversation and is an excellent facilitator. I am very grateful to Ken: as a result of the sessions with him, I feel more at ease with who I am and what I want, and I feel more confident to express my needs as well. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Ken helped with strategies and tools to combat compulsive and addictive behaviour, and was never judgemental. I felt I could open up as he provided me a safe space to let out my problems. I learnt to accept myself and improve myself in the areas I needed too.
Thank you for everything you have done for me, you have helped me to turn my life around and I am eternally grateful, I cant thank you enough.
Dear Cedar House Management:
I would like to say a huge thank you for all of your support, especially Ken. In particular Ken was kind enough to make time for me and gave me endless help and support. At the time I called I was very much in need. Ken helped me look at things from a different perspective and I have overcome a lifetime of difficulties in a short space of time.
I am now able to deal with particular issues that I could not deal with previously. He taught me new methods that helped a lot and allowed me to ask myself questions that did not occur to me before. I do believe because of kens help, my future has now changed. Already my Brother has been in contact and I start a new job on Monday.
I cannot thank him enough for everything. Already my life has changed and I am ready for a new beginning.
