I find group situations so difficult,

Mindfulness
★★★★★
I was apprehensive about joining this MBCT programme because I find group situations so difficult, but I had absolutely no need to worry.  I can honestly say that I have learnt so much about mindfulness and also so much about me.  I have been made to feel so welcome every week and I have enjoyed every minute.

I was in a dark place.

Relationship
★★★★★
Back in January 2017, I was in a dark place. Although married for 46 years, I could see that dissolving before my eyes. I was bad tempered, awkward and sometimes even out of control. That is where Ian came in. Now in November 2017 I am back in control! A weekly session and CBT techniques have conspired against the person I had become. But more than that, Ian was great in his role to get me to see how I could change. It was "do this" or "do that" it was suggestions and getting me to see a way out for myself. To make those changes and maintain them. Ian, I can never thank you enough for the second chance that you have brought to me. I am forever in your debt.

CBT

I have been to see a counsellor before and I didn't find them nearly as insightful, understanding, and thought-provoking as Ian. He helped me to reflect on my problems and asked me questions that really made me think. I have taken away so much for our sessions and I am so grateful for the help he has given me and my relationship. Thank you Ian 🙂
