Satisfied Clients

Paul Lonnon

Andy helped me understand my worth again, brought back my confidence and talked me through any and every situation and thought process. I have a fresh and stronger look on life and my future and that is down to Andy and I would consider him now as a friend and not just as my counsellor .

John Harrington

Basically and simply helped save me. I was at my lowest ever in my life! it took everything I had to take the step and make contact but realising if I did not try then I would have lost everything in my life and maybe my life itself. Andrew had a fantastic calming voice. Listening and asking. Gets YOU to review YOU not making statements or direct comments. Cleverly directs YOUR thinking and attitude to look at everything from a different perspective to the one that got you there in the first place. Makes you appreciate everything you are, have achieved and could and want to be.
