Cheltenham Counselling Service

Testimonial

Losing my mum in 2012 was hard after a 9 year battle with cancer, but then losing my brother fourteen months later in 2013 to the same horrible disease, was beyond comprehension. I knew I would need help to cope mentally, as I was my brothers main carer. I knew about CBT and had done a course back in the 1990’s. Finding Chris was a God send. Not only has she helped me through one of the worst times of my life, she has also given me some very great tools to deal with the day to day issues, relationships and life, both past and present, which are invaluable. As much as I had done CBT before, this course really has been life changing. Learning CBT is one thing, but Chris showed me just how much it can help me in every areas of my life.
