I had considered seeing a counsellor for years, and finally decided to go for it. When I first saw Ros I was a seemingly outgoing and happy person, however, this concealed the fact I suffered from issues with self-confidence, body image, paranoia, perfectionism along with, at times, drinking and spending to excess. Immediately Ros made me feel at ease and her sense of humour made it easy to open up and be completely honest with her. In a relatively short space of time, we identified the underlying issues which helped me to overcome the negative feelings I had previously lived with and accept how things were. The change was apparent to everyone, my friends and colleagues commented on how much more content and confident I had become. I could feel it too, a sense of calm, courage and self-worth which I had never known before. Ros also helped me to be honest with myself about my relationship and recognise how this too was affecting me. I went through some major life changing decisions during the time I was seeing Ros, and with her support found I was able to embrace these completely, and move forward positively. I would, and do, thoroughly recommend Ros to anyone considering counselling.
