I started seeing a counsellor at Gateway Trust when I had some very difficult circumstances to accept and a new direction I was struggling to find. I honestly didn’t think talking therapy would help as I’d already been over and over everything in my mind and with my partner for months, if not years. But it did help, the same topics came back again and again, and I finally got to grips with them. There were a couple of light bulb moments that helped me to change direction. Thank you!

I can’t thank you enough for walking through this last year with me. Your genuine faith and care have helped me through what could have been a totally overwhelming time. 

For me it was a safe place where I could explore my feelings. I urge anyone who reads this to try counselling. Nothing can be lost and there's everything to gain. 

Through the skillful and empathic support of a counselling relationship I have been enabled to go to safe places of healing that I have not been able to go to before.

I've never felt so heard and understood by a therapist before and the lasting effects of my time with Gateway have been amazing. I now have the understanding and the tools to effectively navigate negative situations that arise.

Counselling helped me to believe in myself. It made me look at different ways of looking at my life. It gave me great support, mentally, while changing my life.

I just thought you'd like to know that because of my counselling I have grown in confidence. This has meant that my boss hasn't once shouted at me since and he treats me like all the other workers. So thank you for helping me.

I have been troubled with problems for many, many years. I was in such a bad way I would have given anything a try, although I will admit now, I didn't think anyone or anything could have helped me at the time.  From the first meeting with my counsellor, something just felt right. It's been a difficult path and at times a painful uncomfortable one but I worked through the hard times with my Counsellor, who gently guided me along the road to recovery.  It's taken many months, but my problems were complex. I can say now I've come through the other end.

I have spent the last 45 years of my life really not liking who I was and believing I was not good enough to be on this earth. Counselling has given me the opportunity to deal with past trauma and find an inner peace which I never knew existed. I now love me and life is much happier.

I was guided gently but firmly and with care and compassion through my counselling sessions. Having a guide and support enabled me to face up to difficult and dark places. The journey wasn’t easy but having the encouragement and affirmation of a caring counsellor brought healing and has provided me with the tools to continue that process. It is difficult to find the words to express how grateful I am to Gateway for removing the burden I have been carrying for so long.

I have never been able to open up before causing me to feel so confused by my emotions. I have never felt so understood by others or been able to understand myself until I accessed Gateway. It has definitely changed my life for the better and it has given me so many skills that I will carry with me the rest of my life! I am so grateful and urge anyone who is considering it, to go for it!!

Counselling has helped me to remove the blockage I felt in my life, allowing me to move forward.

Having been through two very traumatic years, I can at last see light at the end of the tunnel, thanks to the guidance of Gateway Counselling and friends. Time is a great healer in itself, but I have felt I have overcome all the obstacles and upsets a lot quicker with the help of Gateway. It was like being lost on a walk and not knowing which way to go, until suddenly you find a signpost confirming that you aren't lost. Just carry on and the signposts will guide you through to the light, and all the dark clouds will slowly slip away leading to a bright future. I can't praise this service enough. Having an independent ear to listen to you certainly works.  

The Gateway Trust Counsellor I was so lucky to see was so professional and easy to work with. She was patient, empathetic kind, but challenging and I was then able to  find my own way through the cloudy heavy issues that were impacting my well being and happiness, and for that assistance I am truly grateful.  

I have been in the depths of despair but with the help of Gateway Trust I am now living a happy fulfilling life. It hasn’t been a five minute job. It has taken quite a long time due to the fact that I had more than one problem but the counsellor showed me patience, compassion and understanding and helped me through, to get me to where I am today. If you need help don’t hesitate to use this service.
