Thank you for considering my counselling services. Counselling is a personal relationship between people and requires mutual trust, openness and honesty. To establish this trust, it is important that we match. I would like to invite you for a preliminary talk so that we can get to know each other and choose the right direction. This talk is free and without any obligation. Feel free to call at any time on 07768 906508 [if I am not available to take your call, please leave me your name and number and convienient times for me to call you back]
Here is an example of the sort of feedback I receive
Hi Laurence, I hope that you're enjoying the nice weather and had a good bank holiday? As promised I have written a few paragraphs to recommend your services. Please see below, I hope that this is useful! :)I have suffered with anxiety all of my life and have suffered from low moods and depression on and off since a teenager. Shortly after Christmas I felt again at an all time low. Over a long period of time I had isolated myself from friends, family and my partner and felt totally overwhelmed with negative thoughts. I had very low self esteem and performing everyday tasks felt like a battle and interacting with anyone felt incredibly difficult.I found the sessions I had with Laurence invaluable and would'nt hesitate in recommending his services. I found the practical support incredibly helpful to identify my negative thoughts and empowered to find different ways of thinking/acting. It was such a relief to have someone to confide in and I was really amazed at how much better I felt simply to get off my chest the thoughts and feelings I had been experiencing. Laurence was very easy to talk to and made me feel at ease immediately.Since completing the sessions I have signed up to achieve a Diploma at work (something that I would have found impossible previously). I have renewed relationships with friends and have been able to open up and be more authentic. I’m now going out and socialising and allowing myself to have fun. I am able to challenge my negative thoughts and override these where necessary. For the first time, in a long time, I am positive about myself and looking forward to the future.
