‘Mark became my counsellor during the last year of my husbands life. He helped me come to terms with the mountains of feelings that constantly whirled around my head. He didn’t just help me to deal with my husbands illness, but enabled me to understand how important it was to look after myself. I always found Mark to be a calm and compassionate counsellor who gently encouraged and challenged me to explore and eventually accept very difficult feelings.His help through the most distressing time of my life has been invaluable.’

‘Mark is warm, kind and friendly. His willingness to listen without judging make him easy to trust. Mark’s careful use of his intuition means that not knowing what to say next is doesn’t stop the therapy process, and his openness and compassion ensure that even difficult issues are possible to talk through without feeling ashamed. Mark is honest and enthusiastic, he helped me to persevere through some extremely difficult times, and stuck with me when it must have been tempting to walk away. Mark’s willingness to really see me when I felt, and at times tried to be, invisible has been a major factor in enabling me to make massive changes so that instead of being self-destructive, needing 24hr residential care and unable to work, I am living independently, working full time and enjoying life.’
