Thank you Mark for your counselling over a span of 20 weeks. It really did not seem that long, but by the end of it I was able I was able to notice a great deal of change in both my behaviour and attitude towards life. Sessions were challenging but I felt that you were able to safely and professionally work with my issues and concerns. You were also extremely patient while I worked through my anxieties and fears about life. I feel that I have found a new sense of empowerment and assertiveness, which I was not able to access before seeing you. If I were experiencing any difficulties in the future, I would not hesitate to return for more counselling with you. ( Male 39)


I just wanted to say a big thank you for our sessions and you did me a great deal of help. You helped change my out look on life especially with my addictions. The last session was the most ground breaking for me. I have been and will recommend you to other people. (Male 25)


Thank you for all you have done to support me though some very difficult times. It takes quite a skilled therapist to be able to see through me. Sometimes it felt as though you saw me before I saw myself. Thanks for helping me see what was blind to me before. (Female 38)


Dear Mark. Thank you for helping me over the last year or so. Its not been an easy path, but you have helped keep me on the path while I have explored some of the darker places. I will now continue on my own. Thanks again.  (Female 53)


Let me begin with the reasons I came to Mark. I had depression on and off since I was 16, now I am 30. I suffered from low self-esteem and had little confidence. I had a hard upbringing and this affected my confidence dramatically and the way I viewed myself and I was very anxious and it affected my relationships and self-worth. With the help of Mark's counselling skills and the sessions I went too, Mark gave me new self-awareness and helped me think differently about myself, boosting my confidence. Counselling can be a life changing thing and Mark worked well with me to achieve a new me. I have tried counselling before but by far Mark was the best I have experienced. Thanks to Mark my journey to a depression free life has begun. (Female 30)


Mark many thanks for your time and patience. I was suffering with anxiety and low confidence. After some time spent with you, I feel I am back to my normal self. I found you easy to talk to and you provided a comfortable environment where I felt I could be totally honest. Thank you. (Female 28)


For years I have suffered with low self-esteem which has developed into a very destructive pattern of behaviour, that was having a huge impact on my relationships and making everyday life a struggle. After only a few sessions with Mark I have been able to change the way I feel about myself, I have gained self-worth and so I can begin changing my behaviour to help future relationships succeed.  (Female 29)


Mark thank you for being there for me, when so many others were not. (Male 28)


A wholehearted thank you Mark, you have helped pick me up from the lowest I have ever been and now I am in a much better place. (Female 58)


Thank you for all your help, but above all thank you for being so patient with me. (Female 37)


I thought I was going crazy but you helped me see the light. My confidence has returned and grown since working with you. (Male 28)


A heart-felt thank you for all you have done for me, the positive changes I made have improved my life, thank you so much Mark. (Male 52)
