“What can I say but thank you for listening to me going on and on…… it has helped me to come to terms with life, it won’t be easy, at times it will be hard but I have learnt from you to carry on”.
“What can I say? Without my counsellor I wouldn’t be where I am now. I cannot thank her enough – she is my Guardian Angel”.
“The counselling has made me a lot happier and confident, my school work has improved and I am a lot happier to be at school and feel confident to meet people. I can also tell my friends my problems at last”.
“Counselling helped me realise I was important….that it was OK to take time away from work to recover…to see that others were controlling my life. It helped me get into perspective others needs – that my responsibility to others began but ended at a certain point….that I could only support needy people, not take on their illness myself. I took back control of my life”.
“I just wanted to say thank you very much for all your help and support over the last few difficult months. I am not sure where I would have been now if it wasn’t for you, I feel so much better now”.
“Very helpful, I wouldn’t be where I am today without your help”.
“I just wanted to thank you for the help and support you gave me during my sessions. It has helped me think towards the future and understand things I could not even think about before I came. So thank you.”
“My reasons for coming were to get my life back and I feel that counselling has helped me do that and feel happy again”.
“I owe so much to my counsellor who was extremely adept and perceptive in her questioning, enabling me to unload so much and reveal events that I have never spoken of before. I now feel as if I have navigated my way through a narrow, constrictive maze, encompassed within a ‘pea-souper’ of a fog and into daylight. I am now on holiday every day! Many many thanks”.
“My counsellor has been a great support – a very intuitive woman. There’s a good atmosphere at Kernos too. Thank you all”.
“It would be good if counselling sessions could be made soon after referral, and maybe have more/longer sessions too. Numerous times I felt I was getting somewhere just as time ran out! Otherwise it was very nice”!
“There was quite a long wait for an appointment, however the sessions were excellent and very beneficial”.
“Coming to the Kernos Centre has been fantastic. I have found out so much about myself and have learnt to deal with problems much easier. It has been a huge benefit for me and I would recommend this centre to anyone. Thank you so much”.
“I can never thank the Kernos centre enough for the support and help they gave”.
“Without the invaluable sessions with my counsellor I feel I would not now be in the current positive position. I feel I have found “me” which had become so lost”.
“I have been helped greatly and now feel ready to move on with confidence”.
“Just to say it really helped me through a bad time for me and my children – thanks to you all”.
“It has changed my whole outlook on life – I am much more positive about anything that comes my way”.
“I think if you have an area in your life that you can’t find answers for yourself then counselling gives you that opportunity. Having family and friends is OK but they don’t always help in the way they should and put a lot of pressure on you….thank you for all you have done”.
I hope that the Kernos Centre continues to exist and help people; especially when there is not a lot of support from the Mental Health Services in this area. I was grateful to see you –keep up the good work!
