“Rachel was lovely, truly lovely. She helped me so much. She gave me a lot of pointers to help me and they worked. She was excellent. If I needed it in the future, I’d only work with Rachel as she was super.”
Jo was very patient and lovely. She explored stuff with me in different methods and I am pleased it wasn't a one-size-fits-all approach. I felt like she saw "me."
Rachel was brilliant, flexible and extremely professional. She helped me a lot. She had a lovely manner.
I felt very well matched and will definitely be in touch in the future.
“Don’t show emotions - I’ve heard it so much throughout my life. When I did feel like crying or I couldn’t cope, I’d kick myself for being weak. Working with Rachel made me realise it’s okay to ask for help. It doesn’t make me any less of a man to have and show emotions.”
Rachel was so easy to talk to. She made the process simple and explained it to me to a point I felt instantly comfortable.
I felt I could talk and share straight away with her. I felt safe and this was most important for me. We started at once a week then after a few months we went to every two weeks. The process was led by me and what I needed. This made me feel I had control over my own process. It was an amazing experience and I can't thank Rachel enough. I will definitely return in the future if I feel I needed further sessions. Ratcliffe Therapeutic Counselling left this open and up to me which makes it so comforting.
I was so well matched with Rachel and thought she was amazing. I felt she gave me the tools to enable me to move forward. Even though my recovery is hard, I know what Rachel gave me and that I am forever grateful for. I will however in the future be in touch with Rachel again for more sessions but I am aware at this stage I need to work on what she gave me.
Thank you Rachel for all your knowledge, patience and understanding.
