To say that my initial thoughts regarding attending counselling were negative is an understatement.
I did not believe it would help as I thought I was too far gone for counselling to work.
Before coming to see Julie I was at the lowest point I have ever been in and was plagued constantly by negative and suicidal thoughts.
However, I can confidently say after counselling with Julie, I feel like a new and better person.
I am much happier, confident and healthier after my time with Julie.
[Looking back] I would never have believed I would be in such a great position now and that is largely due to Julie and the amazing work she does.
As well as feeling massively better in myself, counselling has massively improved the relationship I have with my family and friends, many of which were negatively affected when I was at my lowest.
Despite not initially wanting to attend counselling, the relationship I formed with Julie was amazing.
I felt I could discuss anything with her and not be judged she always listened attentively and never failed to help me find solutions and coping mechanisms.
Overall, Julie was professional, approachable and unfailingly kind and compassionate, exactly the person I wanted to work with.
I honestly couldn’t praise Julie enough, she was quite simply amazing.
Now I feel happy in myself. I am more confident and my university life has improved dramatically.
My relationships with family and friends are better than ever and I feel like I am now in the place I want to be.
So thank you Julie, I cannot praise you enough!
