Cheltenham Counselling Service

Testimonial

I decided I needed to make changes to myself and to find a way of stopping my relationship with my 9 year old son deteriorating further and before the damage was too deep. After speaking to a few councillors I decided that Chris was the right person to help me. As it turned out, the relationship with my son was only one element of the things in my world that were hindered by my own negative thinking. Areas that included my marriage, work and how previous relationships and experiences had effected the way I not only dealt with things but how I looked at myself as a mother, wife, friend and professional. With Chris’s help I have been able to change the way I think about things and how I manage situations so they are no longer destructive. I feel a great weight has been lifted and look forward to my future as a mother, wife, friend and professional. I know that whenever I need her, I can call and the knowledge of having her there is a great help.
