  • “I think guilt is a big part of depression. I have also felt very angry. When I first came to see you, I was either with the anger or the guilt, but never in the middle. I felt heavy with the weight of these two feelings. Now I feel much lighter” G Newton Abbot

  • “I would firstly just like to say a massive thank-you to your service. I was assigned a counsellor called Alan, he was nothing short of amazing. I can’t quite believe how his words of kindness and understanding managed to get me out of my lowest ebb. I’ve been working as a covid HDU nurse for near enough a year, and after relentless sadness and death and destruction, I was at breaking point. Alan helped me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I had never done counselling before and the whole concept was rather strange to me at first, but I felt like it really helped me to reflect and process how I was feeling. I feel it made a massive difference to me in that moment and for that I will be forever grateful. A massive thank-you to your team, and especially Alan. Keep being wonderful" B M, Staff Nurse, Bristol
