"Andrew has helped me healthily question my own ways of thinking, which is leading me to have a better understanding of who I am and have a greater focus on how things affect me. I'm extremely grateful for Andrew helping me through a crisis point with open ears & understanding while continuing to help me grow into the best version of myself. Could not recommend enough!"

"Finding Andrew has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself. He is the only person I have ever felt comfortable enough with to be completely honest and transparent. I have shared my deepest and most vulnerable parts and Andrew has never held judgement or been critical. He is always encouraging and keeps me moving forward in my healing process. I recently went through the most painful experience of my life and am so thankful for Andrew….I genuinely don’t know how I would have made it through without him. He meets me where I am at each week and always has the right words for me. I whole heartedly recommend Andrew’s services."

"After four previous counsellors, Andrew knocks the spots off them. He's totally tuned into me and my situation and responds with surprising accuracy."

"Andrew creates a warm and empathic environment which enabled me to feel safe when working through challenging emotions. Being the only male counsellor in Hartlepool so far, he offers an authentic space for people to figure out their thoughts and feelings without judgment or opinions."
