What Our Clients Say
“It has been a great experience for me, everything went smoothly, and I felt the one-to-one contact was very helpful.”
“When you come here you believe that you are able to get better.”
“Telephone therapy has been so much more helpful than I could have imagined as it allows you to feel safe in your own space when discussing difficult things. I have opened up much more than I would if I was in the same room as a therapist.”
“My therapist was very easy to talk to – empathy in abundance.”
“They made me feel relaxed and very comfortable in talking about my problems.”
“I have enjoyed being able to ‘vent my spleen’ to someone other than family. My counsellor listened to me and made logical comments to assist me dealing with issues that affect my eating habits.”
“I have seen other therapists in the past, but E has been the only one to help me change. I’m very grateful and feel completely different after our sessions.”
“I am eternally grateful and there is nothing I would do to improve the services.”
“I could not have done it without my therapist.”
“I think it is a great service. I am very thankful for everything you have done for me.”
“My therapist helped me find distance from the eating disorder and find myself again.”
“[I was supported as a carer and] someone who was lost and at breaking point. This service allowed and encouraged me to care for myself more and not just look at everything in terms of what the sufferer needs.”
“Excellent service. Wish I had done it years ago.”
“Thank you! You really helped me.”
“My therapist was very understanding with brilliant ideas, also the room the sessions were held in was very homely and had a good atmosphere.”
“Friendly staff… amazing. Very understanding with no judgement.”
“I just want to say thank you for helping me save my life. I don’t want to think about where I’d be without Oakwood’s help, so thank you!!”
“I thought the service was excellent. I felt my therapist really cared for me and I didn’t feel at all judged for what I was going through, allowing me to be really honest.”
“This experience has been incredibly helpful to me, physically, emotionally and mentally. I have felt very understood and relaxed about opening up about my issues… I think the fact that you can also have your appointment on the phone to be very useful and helpful too.”
“The counselling sessions have been initially difficult but ultimately very rewarding. It’s not easy looking at yourself in the mirror and accepting what you see.”
