Testimony of a Client

"On contacting Hugh for counselling, there were many different areas in my life that I was experiencing problems with (workplace stress, bereavement, identity issues) & I wanted help in dealing with my feelings of anxiety, despair & hopelessness.  Hugh uses a person-centred approach, which meant that I could talk about where I was at during each counselling session.  This approach allowed me to have a freedom in expressing what I was thinking & feeling, which was helped along by Hugh listening to me & ask the right questions at the right time.

I felt comfortable speaking to Hugh & sharing what was going on in my life, as he is trustworthy, a good listener, as he remembers what you have said & presents it back to you in a way that allows you to see it from a different perspective.

I believe that Hugh is gifted with skills that allow him & his client to get to the root of the problem(s), which is one of the things I was looking for in a counsellor.  On completing my counselling time with Hugh, I feel free of many things that have held me back; some of which I was aware of & some things I didn’t even know were a problem. 

By linking things together & being open to my own beliefs & faith, Hugh helped me to not only see things in a different way, but also equipped me with ways of avoiding falling into the same traps that had caused me anxiety/stress in the past.  I now feel like I am standing on solid ground & have the inner peace I have desired for so long."
