“Counselling has changed my life. I cannot thank you enough for helping me to find myself again.” 

 ”For me it was a big step to pursue counselling, as I thought my problems were just a part of who I was. I didn’t realise that I could even get better.

My closest friend had been to Acorn Counselling Centre to help her work through relationship difficulties she was having with her partner and on her insistence I made an appointment.  

I think she was sick and tired of listening to me give out about my life and everybody in it, and yet not prepared to do anything about it!

Pat has a very relaxed but professional approach,and I felt at ease from the very first moment I sat down. I went to my initial session with a set of preconceived ideas and thoughts on what therapy was about.

To my surprise it went a lot deeper than I thought. I have to say it was probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to do but also one of the most rewarding. It made me re-evaluate my relationships with friends, family, colleagues but most importantly myself.

Therapy was humorous and fun too at times, and in the process I learned to laugh at myself and to take life a little less seriously.”
