Richard, Online Counselling
“As a parent I think most people feel nothing is ever going to be perfect - we struggle on, day-to-day, as best we can. Talking to John I realise that there’s much more to it than this, current stresses and also past experiences that shape how I behave as a family member, and that I have the power to change the way I deal with those things. Thank you John for helping me get to this place of understanding.”
“John is a very warm and understanding counsellor. He helped me explore different aspects of my life and relationships without hurry, and let me take things at a pace I was comfortable with. I am so grateful for our work together, and for having him as a guide.”
