"A few years ago Cognitive Behavioural Therapy helped me through a difficult patch in my life. So when the opportunity came to train as a counsellor, I decided to take this step towards a better understanding of myself and of others. This is not just a step forward, but a leap into the unknown. I learned so much about the reasons for my behaviour".
"I had 60 years of learned behaviour to understand and try to change. It was very painful at times but I am so glad that I persevered, because I think I have come through a much stronger person, with a better understanding of human nature and a more positive outlook on life".
