After visiting a few counsellors/psychotherapists I was still at square one, when I found Allan I asked him on our first meeting could he just do the Shallow Hal whammy thing on me, because basically I was exhausted in every way with trying to fix the things locked in my head. I just wanted someone to change that in that instant. He laughed and said lets talk about what’s going on…. Fast forward that day, and I finally have the Shallow Hal whammy but in the real sense. Things no longer affect me, life no longer stays in my head, I don’t think about or worry about what has happened or what might happen, I just live in today. Something I never ever dreamed I’d do. But the most amazing part, is that it’s all just normal. No dramatic changes or hard work, no miraculous epiphany, no new found serenity. Just normality, and that’s what Allan gives you, it’s yourself back, only better, well prepared and at your best ever imaginable.
For that I’m forever thankful, and grateful beyond words, my life and my story is now mine to own. ” – Female client.
I won’t go into the depth of how depressed i was so here is just a quick summery. I forgot what is was like to be happy.
I was so tough on myself and really believed that my purpose in life was to serve and help everyone else. My self worth was at rock bottom. I was on my last emotional leg and just about to totally give up but then i met Allan.
Allan showed me how to find that set of keys that i had lost way back in my happier days. He help me realise that my happiness is inside of me and i just needed to remember how to access it. I had been to other places for counselling before but just ended up walking out or stopped going back because i felt they just did not understand me at all. They were no help to me whatsoever. Allan was the total opposite.
I felt so comfortable as if i was talking to a close friend. My words just flowed out and Alan took so much interest in me that he fully understood everything.
In my experience, Allan is a very friendly, compassionate gentleman,extremely well executed in his field and has a that wonderful natural gift of truly understanding people.
Many thanks Allan.
You truly have helped me change my life.” – Male client.
“Counselling has helped me regain control of my life again”
A lot of confusion and aggression in my life and unable to let go of my past which was controlling me.
Having never been to counselling I was unsure what to expect but from day 1 Allan made me very comfortable, relaxed and is down to earth. Allan has helped me take back control of my life which I am highly grateful for, things that have been controlling me for the past 30 years I’m now finally in control. I can’t recommend Allan highly enough a lovely person and extremely professional. One more thing he went above and beyond for me, many thanks.” – Male client.
“I was feeling very low and near to breaking point. I wasn’t sure what to do but I was willing to try anything to feel better. That’s when I reached out to Allan.
It was tough in the beginning and it felt odd to me to talk to someone i had never met before. I wasn’t sure whether I could continue because I couldn’t see how it was going to help me. Allan was very professional and easy to talk to and I began to really look forward to our sessions. I soon realised that I was getting a lot out of our meetings and couldn’t be without them. Allan helped me a lot to get back to being ‘me’ again and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need. Allan is really good at his job, i never felt judged but always fully supported. I will always be grateful for his guidance in especially being kinder to myself.” – Female client.
I was feeling a bit lost within myself and with his help and understanding he helped me to see how good of a person I am and how I deserve like everyone else to be happy. Thank you very much Allan for all your help
Excellent would highly recommend it. If you are feeling down or lost within yourself you should always look to talk to someone who will not judge you and there is no shame in looking for help and this is the best place to go, I’m glad I did.” – Female Client.
“I had considered talking to someone on a few occasions but was motivated to actually do something about it after I became a parent and found it harder to control my emotions, in particular my anger. I was feeling very overwhelmed and contacted Allan via email a few times before making an appointment. I was impressed by how quickly I felt I could talk openly and also relieved to have an outlet. I could reassure myself that “I’ll talk this through with Allan” when I felt myself getting upset and frustrated. In a short time I had a whole new perspective on how I deal with situations, avoid certain emotions and how much I need to talk. As well as being a calm and patient listener Allan has a wealth of knowledge that helped me unravel what I was feeling and what I was thinking. I am so grateful to have had his help, I have a whole new appreciation for my own journey to date and am so glad I sought out help when I did. I haven’t had much experience with counsellors but genuinely didn’t think I would receive the insight and feedback I have gained from Allan. This is a very valuable service and I would highly recommend it.
I choose this clinic for its location. It is a discreet place which is comfortable, quiet and undisturbed. I was impressed by the professional manner that Allan would finish a session, he was always considerate if I was upset to allow time to calm myself. He also has a good sense of humour which I was grateful for, it helped to lighten sessions at times. My experience to date has been excellent and has exceeded my expectations.” – Female client.
As a guy I thought it’s not normal to seek help but I found Allan very helpful and after a few sessions I went from not being able to leave the house to being able to cycle 30 mile and also join a gym, highly recommended.”- Male client.
The hardest part was making that first appointment after that I wouldn’t say it was easy but it was very helpful. It is very good to be able to say what you want with no judgment. It was very freeing. It was a very new experience for me. It also help to clear your mind and you can think alot better about things and situations. He is very professional and may I say very good at his job and I’m glad I have him as my counsellor.” – Female client.
“I was very pleased with the treatment, everything was easy for me, location was perfect for me, price is not too expensive, it’s made very comfortable ease to talk to, which is a hard thing for me and many people who wouldn’t even think of going to a therapist. Very good for making you realise things and situations that you wouldn’t necessarily see from a different perspective. Gives you an enlightened view which made it a lot easier for me to get over what I was going through.” – Male client.
