What clients have said…
❝ I have
only positive views and words for my time with my counsellor. While always
his welcoming manner, openness and consideration towards me through my trauma always allowed me to
move forward no matter how slow or resistant I felt.❞ ~ August 2010
❝ I felt Reach helped me see a lot. I was scared and a bit nervous but now I feel
open and confident. Me and my family have opened up more to each other and
got closer as well. ❞ A twelve year old client ~ April 2010
was very thorough with a good pace. Each session challenged us. We learned
of communicating to help us move forward, and changed some thought patterns and unhelpful behaviour.
We felt equipped with tools to use in our relationship to move forward. We have grown closer because of
our experience with Reach.❞ Married Couple ~ October 2009
❝ It took a lot for me to call Reach in the first place. I felt a failure at having to admit
I needed help. I was very broken and unable to cope with everyday things and emotionally unstable I left feeling confident and together ~ like the old me I hadn't
seen in a long time. I would highly recommend your services.❞ ~ January 2010
❝ An excellent organisation which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who needed emotional help.❞
