I've been under Andy's care for over two years, initially seeking support for severe health anxiety. After trying various counselors without success, I was referred to Andy, and I couldn't be more grateful. With his guidance, I've truly transformed my life.

Throughout our sessions, we've explored a range of topics that have helped me recognise and understand patterns in my anxiety, making it much easier to manage. Andy has also assisted me in accessing medication through my GP, ensuring I was informed every step of the way.

I feel completely safe and supported in his hands, as he provides a nurturing, secure, and soothing environment. If you're hesitant about starting therapy, let this be your encouragement. Andy truly is exceptional.

"Deep listening is the kind of listening that can help relieve the suffering of another person. You can call it compassionate listening. You listen with only one purpose: to help him or her to empty his heart." ~Thích Nhất Hạnh

This is the level of expertise and care you can expect from Andy Garland Therapies. He creates a safe space for you to be heard and the opportunity to grow/reflect. And that is a rare find these days. Look no further. And thank you Andy for all the things.

Andy is an amazing therapist and incredibly good at his job. I had 12 therapy sessions and I feel like the person I'm always meant to be! So much happier, confident and less anxious and depressed. I 100% recommend Andy Garland Therapies to anyone who feels like they need some support. Thank you, Andy!

Life changing, he was so approachable because I was obviously nervous starting out, I was at ease instantly. I'm so happy to say that I finally feel we have resolved the issues I was troubling over, I've tried endless amount of therapies but this was the one for me. I couldn't be happier or more grateful of Andy

I visited Andy for b12 injections and I would highly recommend, friendly and professional service from start to finish, will definitely be returning.

Andy Garland is a kind, caring, warm and knowledgeable professional. Trust is so important and I trust Andy completely. I recommend Andy with complete confidence.

I don't normally put reviews on any site, but I want to thank Andy from the bottom of my heart for being an amazing therapist. I was nervous, but he put me at ease straight away.
I can honestly say I have never felt better. I highly recommend.

Thank you so much for all that you have done for me Andy.

You helped me more than you could ever know. Thank you.

I've suffered with Trichotillomania for 17 years, since I was 9 years old I've tried so many different fidget toys, wigs, therapists, treatments and nothing helped.

I started seeing Andy a few years ago and he has helped me to become a year and a half free of pulling my hair. We've talked about what it feels like to pull my hair and why I do it, he explains to me different ways the brain works and why habits form and how they work, this has helped me to understand it's not as simple as 'just stop pulling your hair'.

Andy has mixed in Hypnotherapy in between a few therapy sessions, and these have had a massive help. Andy is caring, professional, and easy to talk to, he is extremely passionate about his work and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andy to anyone

Andy has changed my life for the better in so many ways, I cannot thank him enough. I highly recommend Andy to anyone seeking therapy. I have referred multiple friends and family and have all gone on to have the same results as me.

Andy helped me massively. Changed my life, Would highly recommend!

I have been seeing Andy for B12 treatment for almost a year, and I only wish I had found him sooner. There is such a warm and calming welcome at the clinic, from reception to the therapy room. Andy is kind, caring and professional, and really understands the importance of B12 for mental and physical well-being.

By nature, my appointments may be quick, but Andy always takes the time to ask how I am and check that everything is okay, the treatment is never rushed. A real gem I could not be without.

After 30 years of struggling with extreme anxiety and panic attacks I decided to give therapy one final chance . I have over the years tried everything including psychiatrists, psychologists, hypnotherapy , meditation etc etc etc .

I had my first session with Andy and I had never felt so optimistic about a future free of fear and anxiety . I have had many sessions over the past few months and I have improved with every one . Andy is caring and professional at all times he has instilled in me a confidence that I had never felt before.

I would not hesitate to recommend Andy to anyone struggling with their mental health , he has shown me that there is a way forward and with his support and encouragement I really believe I can get there .

I started seeing Andy following a debilitating illness, which left me feeling anxious and inferior. Andy's empathy, kindness and compassion combined with his therapy skills and experience helped me understand my state of mind and, more importantly, to change it. Thanks to Andy, I no longer feel a sense of failure or guilt due to my illness, and I am able to talk openly to my family and friends about it. My sessions with Andy were often emotional, but always positive - he is incredibly skilled at building self esteem. I also found his deep meditation sessions very helpful for addressing anxiety. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Andy and would most definitely see him again for any future therapy needs. Thank you Andy.

I referred a friend to Andy for psychotherapy. I met Andy at a continuing professional development course and was very impressed with his abilities and his welcoming, non- judgemental way with people. The transformation in my friend since working with Andy has been amazing to see. She's now happy and enjoying life and very glad she made that first appointment. Thank you Andy for making such a positive difference in her life - she asked me to leave this review for her as she's a very private person but wanted to let you know how much you've helped.

I have know Andy for about 3 years and he has totally change my life both professionally and socially.Within a few weeks of starting treatment my family and friends could see a difference in my well-being. I am now a very confident and positive person and have progressed very quickly in my career which is all thanks to Andy, in making me believing in my self again and giving me help to achieve my goals in life. I have no hesitation in recommending Andy he is a great guy.

Over the years, I have been asked by numerous people if I know of a therapist who can help them with their challenges and issues. I have always recommended Andy Garland therapies to them because Andy has an unwavering passion for his work, excellent expertise, a caring nature and is highly professional. He always sees the best in people. When you want to be in safe hands, listened to and understood, having support from Andy is definitely the way forward.

I first met Andy a decade ago when I was suffering with a general anxiety disorder. Andy really helped me understand what was happening to me physically and emotionally, which in turn helped me regain confidence and a sense of control.
As the pandemic hit I sort out Andy's services again and was really glad I did! He continues to help me work through and manage my mental health.

I was referred to the clinic by my G.P as I wanted more regular B12 injections. The advice and kind support Andy's provided has been exceptional and utterly professional. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Andy Garland is at the high end of his expertise. If you're looking for a Psychotherapist who is non judgmental and kind, look no further. I would recommend Andy without a moment's hesitation. What matters to me is an authentic heart centred experience from a practitioner who is both highly intelligent and relational. If this is what matters to you too, then Andy will not disappoint.

I began to see Andy while struggling to cope with multiple issues that had built up over many years, during our sessions Andy allowed me to understand what I was feeling, why I felt that way and then how to deal with those feelings. Although my treatment was a good few years I ago I still on a daily basis think back to my treatment and use the advice given to allow me to process my feelings and move on from them and feel more relaxed. While my mental health remains an issue for me in dark or stressful times I now feel equipped to deal with any issues I am having thanks to Andy. While I haven't felt the need to return for more treatment I would not hesitate to go back to Andy and ask if I felt I wasn't copping well again.

Having known Andy for many years, I recently sought some help from him for a family member. He was wonderful! His advice, support and encouragement helped get things back on track, seeing issues in a more positive light and better appreciating the influence one can have over them. Andy is a real gem of a therapist.

Patient- centred advice and thorough discussion before my B12 injection was administered. Professional and friendly service. Will definitely recommend to others.

Andy makes you feel at ease as soon as you meet him. He is very professional and always has your health as his priority. Would highly recommend his services to anyone who feels they need it.

Andy has transformed the way I think and act; I would never be where I am without his help, and I will be forever grateful for everything he has taught me over the past 3 years. 1 hour with Andy makes me stand that little bit taller and feel more focused. His kindness, compassion and insight are invaluable, and learning from Andy has been the best investment I've ever made.

I've been seeing Andy regularly for just over a year now and during that time I've found Andy to be an exceptionally good therapist. Unlike many therapists I have had in the past Andy genuinely cares about his patients, which comes across in his attention to detail and how he discusses your given issue with you. With all my previous therapists I felt like I was simply any other patient. With Andy you really do feel like you're building up a genuine partnership where he is as invested as you are.

I reached out to Andy at a time when I was in something of a crisis and despite having a very busy schedule he bent over backwards to accommodate me. Since then, Andy has supported me every step of the way on my journey and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I've been seeing Andy for the best part of two years and to say I've seen and felt a huge difference would be a massive understatement. Hugely professional, comforting and understanding. I've seen incredible progress in both my work and personal life.

Andy has a great ability to put you at ease and make you feel comfortable. I'd never had or even thought about therapy before going to see him and I would never look back, he's been brilliant. Thank you Andy so much for your ongoing support!

I have been talking to Andy for about 2 years now and he really has made a huge difference to my life and the way I think about myself/things. I really can't recommend him enough.

Andy is just brilliant. He is sympathetic and understanding. He does not pass judgment and you really couldn't be in safer hands. You must have complete trust in your therapist and I would trust Andy implicitly. He has been a godsend to me and i would have no hesitation in recommending him.

My teenage daughter started seeing Andy around 2 years ago after a glowing recomendation from a friend who's daughter he also treated. I cannot begin to write about the improvement in my daughter's mental health since seeing Andy. He is always friendly,warm,welcoming and engaging when we see him, and i am made to feel a part of the process with him helping my daughter. She actually looks forward to going to see him. His approach is fresh and innovative and totally non stuffy.
Covid obviously affected how he practiced, but my daughter has been able to continue her invaluable treatment with Zoom calls with Andy. I cannot recommend Andy Garland Therapies highly enough.

I've been seeing Andy for just over 2 years now. At first I was sceptical about seeing another therapist as I had tried before but sadly it just didn't work out.
I've suffered with severe anxiety and mild levels of depression for most of my adult life and in particular after losing my business around 3 years ago.
Andy has helped me in many ways, sometimes it's as simple as listening to me rant on about my problems for an hour (I'm not sure how he does it honestly lol) . He's helped me to understand that medication is not a bad thing and I can't tell you how thankful I am that he was able to show me this, as I'm not sure where I would be if I didn't try it.
I would recommend him to anyone, if you're struggling and are feeling like you need help but are worried about asking for it just give him a call, it's what I did and as I say I'm not sure where I'd be if I didn't take the jump and pick up the phone!

I would very happily recommend Andy to anyone. He's been a great help over the years, and his approach to patient safety over the past 18 months has been exemplary.

I have been having sessions with Andy for a year now! He has helped me so much to deal with my mental health and is very professional helpful and has really helped me to deal with my emotions and feelings! My mental health is getting better and better each day and i have only Andy to thank him for! He has really helped me to have hope and to be a strong person!

I met Andy towards the back end of last year when I was going through an extremely difficult period in my life. As someone who had never previously contemplated referring themselves to a therapist, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but Andy's level of care and professionalism left me feeling more and more at ease every time I went to see him. I would recommend this man to anyone. He's helped me look at life from a more positive angle and I will forever be grateful for all the time and support he gave me.

Andy Garland is the ultimate caring professional. I never felt intimidated going into his sessions and felt comfortable and safe talking to him. A therapist who genuinely cares about you and how you're doing and recommends treatments accordingly whilst still giving you the choice of what you want each session to consist of. Andy is always extremely kind and showed belief in me throughout the time I saw him. I have achieved things I know I wouldn't have been able to think about doing before seeing Andy and the progress I'm making is apparent to both myself and the people around me. I thank Andy sincerely for his continuing help and understanding and I would recommend him and his practice to anyone.

I went to Andy for three years while undertaking my own psychotherapy studies. His sessions were invaluable. He very skillfully wove my own personal growth with aspects of academia. Many occasions since my sessions I find myself talking through situations in my head the way we did together in therapy. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Professional and friendly service that has really helped me out when I needed it. I was comfortable almost immediately and therefore able to talk about the issues troubling me.

Having been with Andy for two and a half years he's become a staple in my wellbeing both on a personal and professional level. With reflection the progress in decision making and other focused areas has been astounding.

I have seen a lot of therapists over the years and I have never managed to find one that I can feel comfortable opening up to until Andy. He is professional, understanding and considerate. Definitely recommend.

I met Andy nearly 12 months ago and he has totally tranformed my life, making me a very confident person and able to deal with any situation that my arise within my personal and work life. Andy is a very professional and sincere person and helps you to look at the postive things in life. I would not hesitate in recommending Andy.

I've known Andy for over ten years. His mix of professionalism and caring support creates an excellent environment for self-reflection and development. He's a thoroughly decent chap, dedicated to helping people.

I met Andy several years ago, he was referred to us via our consultant. He is an immensely likeable person, thoroughly professional and extremely considerate. He has helped us at various times immeasurably and continues to do so. I have recommended him to other members of my family and would not hesitate to do so again.

Having been a client of Andy's for 3.5 years now, I can safely say we have developed a trustworthy and reliable relationship. Andy is wonderfully professional and warm and really has enabled me to change my behaviours and lifestyle. I have recommended him to many friends and will continue to do so.

I referred a friend to Andy for psychotherapy. I met Andy at a continuing professional development course and was very impressed with his abilities and his welcoming, non- judgemental way with people. The transformation in my friend since working with Andy has been amazing to see. She's now happy and enjoying life and very glad she made that first appointment. Thank you Andy for making such a positive difference in her life - she asked me to leave this review for her as she's a very private person but wanted to let you know how much you've helped.

Andy is an exceptional professional. I don't recommend lightly and I have recommended him to over 50 people. I will continue to do so. It's no wonder he is always busy as he is a master at what he does and his level of care and clinical professionalism is second to none. I wanted to quit smoking and asked for recommendations on Facebook and literally everyone that commented said Andy Garland. I had my answer and now thankfully I'm smoke free and healthier and happier because of it.

I never realised how much I was keeping to myself until I started talking to you Andy. My partner has always said that I keep everything in, and I guess she's right! I'm feeling oddly much lighter, and that chatter in my head that I talked about is almost completely gone - I've become good at recognising it and using the techniques we discussed to out-talk it. I've not relied on my G.P for much, though even though I couldn't see you through the NHS, her referral to you has been more than worth it - thank you Andy.

I'm the happiest I have ever been, and I know only too well that there's a challenging road ahead, though I'm set-up for it and ready to take it on! You told me right from the start that unless I accepted myself, no-one else was going to. I'm still working on it, and I'm seeing the difference it's making too. I know you're part of a whole team that's supporting me through this, though I wanted to say thank you for everything you have helped me with so far.

Being able to recognise that my behaviour wasn't normal has been such a learning curve for me. Of course I understood that I wasn't feel well, though I don't think I would have taken responsibility for changing it - I wanted it to happen to me, rather than me helping it out! I actually feel quite amazing, and waking up without the worry on how bad the day would be, is such a relief for me. You have helped me far more than you would ever imagine Andy - thank you so much.

My biggest test has been passed with flying colours! The nurse couldn't quite believe how calm I was, and actually asked me if the Doctor had prescribed a valium for me! I have to say that there was still a shade of nervousness, though nothing that would have stopped me going ahead with it. It's unbelievable that I've let myself go through my adult life until now with sheer panic around needles. Thanks Andy - you really have made a difference.

Your commitment to my recovery has been more than I could have ever expected. I'm well on the road to handling my demons, and I know this will probably be a life-time of focus and attention to ensure it doesn't take over me again. I've come across many therapists throughout my life, and you stand out as one of the most down-to-earth and practical amongst them - you have made a huge difference in my life Andy, and it's up to me to continue with the structure we worked on.

I remember our first telephone conversation and how anxious/embarrassed I was, though I needn't have been. Even just speaking with you on the phone I could tell that nothing was phasing you. My G.P had made the referral as you know, and after trying the usual medications I felt that therapy was going to be my last chance at getting something that resembled a healthy sex life back on track. I'm beyond thankful for everything you have helped me with, and I'm sure it's such a cliche, though I feel more complete, probably more of a man! I would say to any guys out there that are suffering because they're too embarrassed or worried, to go seek help - you don't have to accept that your sex life is over

My life was actually pretty damn awful for going on 4 years, and trying to get help had been a complete nightmare! When I eventually got a referral to you, I thought that it was all too late, and I would forever be governed by these panic attacks. It's so wonderful to be able to write this to you, and know that I've been without any extreme panic for coming up to 7 months. You have worked wonders for me, and I rave about you always! You'll also be pleased to know that I've completed all my medication, so am doing this all by myself.

Your honesty and compassion over the last few months have lifted me out of that dark hole I was sitting in. It has been nice to be able to laugh, and not feel guilty. Of course, I still miss her terribly, and I know I always will, though I have an inner strength that was void since she died. Thank you for the humour Andy, it's been so good getting to know you a little.

Ever since a child I remember being the kid who would prefer to watch TV and read books, rather than go out and play with friends. And, as an adult I've preferred my own company over socialising, which has removed me from the small group of friends that I had. Having had therapy with you Andy I now realise how I blamed others' for 'leaving me out', though I would create these situations to give me exactly what I thought I be alone. Having faced these issues with you it is quite incredible how much more confident I feel about myself, and have started putting a value on my self-esteem, which was totally lacking. You'll be pleased to know that I've re-connected with a few friends, and have already been out for meals and drinks - onwards and upwards! Thank you Andy.

You may remember me telling you about the series 'Dexter', and how he refers to his manic side of his personality as a 'Dark Passenger'. I felt like that for so many years, I knew there could be times when everything would be okay, though I always held onto the worry of the next epsiode of depression, it was so incredibly tiring. Well, here I am almost 12 months past my last appointment with you, and I can confirm that I have had the most amazing time - nothing special, just being able to wake-up without that feeling of dread hanging over me. After all the therapy I've taken part in over the years, those 4 months in session with you has made a difference, way beyond what I could have expected or even imagined. It doesn't feel enough to say thank you, though I want you to know that you have helped give me back my life.

I was thinking about our last session, and you said that I'm seeking other peoples' acceptance, though had still to accept myself. Your words really did stay with me, and you're quite right - how can I expect people to accept me if I'm not willing to do the same? I've woken up with a new approach, and already feelings of confidence are coming to the surface. I really do just want to blend in, though my attitude has been making me stand out! Thank you for having the patience to work with me Andy.

I remember not that long ago waking up in the morning, and almost wondering when I would feel the anxiety of my next panic attack - not a pleasant way to start each day. I'm just past 12 months out of therapy with you, and feel so much more in control and haven't had a panic attack in over 18 months. I'm so so grateful for being referred to you and all that you have done to help me manage myself more effectively. The difference this is making in my life is far beyond being able to hold down a job, it's kept my relationship together and I'm more active in my family, and I have a social last!

It's quite difficult to put into words how much of difference my sessions with you have made to me, and of course my family. I'm participating in their lives for the first time in several years - my wife said it's like getting her husband back! I have so much to be thankful for, and getting to meet you is right at the top of my list Andy. I'll continue working on the areas we discussed, and I'm determined to not let my life slip away from me again

It's been almost 5 years since my stomach pain first reared its ugly head, and it's been a constant in my life daily ever since. You really were my last hope after being referred to you by my consultant at St. Woolos, so I had all my eggs in one basket! The relief even after the second session with you brought tears to my eyes, and I felt more relaxed and out of pain than I can last remember. As the sessions moved on I became more and more confident that I had this in control, and the worry that it would return was much less - I'm still fighting with that a little. I must thank you for your ability and kindness, and understanding - thank you.

My referral to you from Dr Llewellyn felt like my absolute last hope. Since being diagnosed with CFS and understanding what I've been living with for the past 5 years helped somewhat, though it didn't change how I was feeling. With your help Andy I have grasped hold of the concept that I can manage this, and even though it may be part of the rest of my life, it doesn't have to be my whole life - sounding a little like you! I'm waking up with more energy and the days when I feel less inclined to get out of bed I remember our sessions, and make a little more effort. Speaking with someone like you that understood my condition helped greatly and I thank you for being so understanding and direct when needed.

I recall watching a series called 'Dexter', and he referred to his obsession as his 'dark passenger', this has been such a clear description to how I felt about my anxiety and depression. I must say, it was an unwanted passenger! Over the last few weeks I have felt so light (emotionally), and the worries that I carried around like a bad smell have completely vanished - I understand that I may experience negative feelings again, though knowing that it doesn't have to be that way is one big step forward for me. I don't say this lightly Andy, though you've been an absolute life-saver for me.

Life has been a real struggle since the car accident, and trying to put it out of mind was almost impossible. Almost evey area of my life was affected, sleep, my marriage, work, the list goes on. Getting to therapy was such an important step, and I haven't looked back since. Working with you has shown me that I can move forward, and life doesn't have to be about the past. I'll be forever thankful Andy.

I started writing this to you, and felt a little bit sad over how long it took me to find the strength to move on. I'm overall happy though, and the most important thing is not to regret - live life for the now, Andy! My sessions with you helped me realise what I already knew...the relationship was over a long time ago. I actually feel like my life holds so many possibilities, something that I never considered previously. Thank you for helping me get to this point.

I was surprised at how difficult it has been to find a therapist that fully understood my Bipolar disorder, so when my Doctor referred me to you, I was doubtful that you'd be able to help. From the first chat we had on the telephone, I could tell that your approach would be different, it was actually quite refreshing. I've seen a remarked difference in my moods, and am feeling far more confident about dealing with future episodes. I understand that there's still work to do, though I wanted to let you know how happy I am to have found you.

I accepted a long time ago that my family set-up is unconventional, though hadn't realised that I (in your words Andy) 'normalised' their and my behaviour. My sessions with you, gave me more than insight into why I act the way I do - I now understand that I can live a different life to the one I grew up in. I know longer feel that I need to end my relationships with them, just look after myself and let them look after their stuff! Thank you Andy

It's been a real tough few years, and looking back I wonder how I managed to hold down my job. I felt an almost immediate confidence in you Andy, right from the first time we chatted on the phone. I did find those first couple of sessions particularly difficult, and I almost didn't come back (an old trait of mine - 'giving in'). Life is so different for me now, I don't go looking for things to make me anxious, and I'm far more relaxed about everyday stresses - I just deal with them. I have so much to thank you for

By the time I had come to see you, so many horrible things had already happened, and I kept finding myself repeating the same routine - forgiving and going back. Your support helped me to make a decision that I've been frightened of for over 10 years. I still do have those moments when I wonder if I should go back to my marriage, and then I think about our chats, and all I learnt about myself. I'm gradually building back my confidence, and have started working part-time to fit in the school run - it all seems to be coming together. Thank you so so much.

I've heard other people say that they've felt their depression lift from them, and I could only hope that I would get to this place. I've tried therapy several times over my adult life, and really made no progress, or at least, very little. After the third session with you I started to feel so different, and of course then I worried that it may just go away! I can happily report that it hasn't, and I notice a positive difference each day. I'm spening more time with my family, and joined a book club, which I'm loving. Thank you for being the person that helped me Andy - always grateful.

I'm just about to celebrate my 3rd anniversary of being sober...big up me! Before I got to see you Andy I really was spinning out of control, of course I wasn't so aware of it, though my wife and family were so concerned. I did need to take stock of my life, and you helped me to achieve that. Your honesty was what I needed, and it did give me a wake-up call to the immediate danger I was putting myself in. The early days were a struggle, and there are occasions still when I'm close to breaking my sobriety. Thank you for all and everything you have done for me.

Thank you for making me feel at ease Andy, and helping to minimise my embarassment. In fact, that's what held me back from seeking help earlier - worried about what someone may think of me. After the first few sessions my sexual anxiety was in far more control, and my erection just sorted itself out! I really could kick myself for waiting this long, though I guess the important thing is that I'm dealing with it right now.

It's been a tough experience for me, and there were times that I thought I would be better off not dealing with the pain and hurt. I'm so glad that I found the courage to continue, and you helped me so much with that Andy - such kindness and support made a difference. I'm looking forward and planning some exciting activities over the next few months, something I've been hiding from over the years. Thank you again Andy.

I took quite a bit of nerve to make the appointment with you; after that telephone chat we had on the phone I felt so much better. We were both so anxious coming into the first session, though quickly you helped us settle in. I have to say it was challenging at times, and the therapy brought up many unspoken issues. We both agreed to therapy knowing that it may not repair our relationship, and the solution may be to find a way to separate. We're near enough 4 months past our last session with you, and our relationship is stronger than ever. We talk with each other more, and our openess with how we feel is making such a difference. Thank you from both of us.

I was truly at my last hope when I contacted you, and probably put way too much emphasis on you being able to 'fix' me. I had used drugs for almost 8 years, and didn't really see it as a problem, though it was was. Working with you has given me a structure and routine to help me get through each day, and although some days are still tough, I'm getting more good ones. My life is getting back on track, and I'm finding more enjoyment in socialising, and rediscovered my passion for painting. I have so much to thank you for - THANK YOU!

I sat down to write this to you, and realised how much I've changed in these past 8 months. Not getting out of bed; taking time off work; not seeing family and friends...basically living life solo. My energy has increased to the point that I've started exercising again, and joined a Zumba class! I'm waking up in the morning feeling as if I've slept, and am raring to go, mostly. Between you and Dr. Llewellyn I have my life back in order. Thank you to you both.

I've been reading a few of your testimonials, and am not sure what else I can add to the wonderful comments. I would like to say how grateful I am that you took the time to fully understand my story, and more importantly, not let me get-away with excuses and poor behaviour! I'm well on the way to recovery and can only imagine good things to come.

I've been in and out of therapy thoughout my adult life, and until meeting you Andy, I haven't found someone who took the time to understand me, and I guess just listen. Therapy has never been about stopping my behaviour, it's more on how I can manage the times that feel 'out-of-control'. I feel so much safer socilaising since my sessions started, and have a made a few new friends along the way. If nothing else, I have a confidence in myself that wasn't there before.

After the first session I came away feeling more at ease. It was the first time someone was able to describe how I was feeling, and the impact anxiety was having on my life - I felt immediately lighter. My life looks so different right now, I'm doing more and wanting to be around friends and family. I can only see it getting better.

Your support has been second to none. I was just a little unsure on how you'd be able to help me, though I'm feeling much more controlled with my emotions. Of course, I still have moments when my mum's passing hits me, and I'm sure that will be the case for some time. I'm just happy that my friend suggested that I contact you - thank you so much Andy.

As you know it was a real struggle for me to even make a booking, and then a few attempts at putting it off. In truth, it was pretty difficult at times and there was more than one occasion that I felt it wasn't worth the pain and tears. I'm about 3 months out of therapy, and have never felt so clear headed and happy. I still find myself drifting back to old thoughts, though they just don't make me feel bad about myself any longer. I'm a stronger person, and now focus on me right now and not my past.

I lived with anxiety for most of my adult life, and until a year ago when I met you Andy, I thought that's how everyone was dealing with stress and life upsets. My life looks the same now, though I feel so different. I'm more relaxed and I don't react to potential stressful situations with fear and worry any longer. I find myself noticing signs when my stress levels start to rise, and I do something about it straight away. I'm so grateful for all of your help - have a wonderful Xmas.

I'm sure you get to hear it often Andy, though I'm so incredibly grateful for your help, and getting me to a point where I can look forward and see a life ahead of me. I've made connections and friendships with many women and men over the years who also battled with anorexia, so I can fully understand the pain and loss that comes with such an awful illness. Having you there has been the greatest support, and knowing that I was in safe hands gave me the courage to face up to my traumas - thank you, thank you.

With many years of not really understanding why I felt so nervous, and choosing to avoid being around people instead of enjoying socialising, I'm now at a point where I feel in control. I think after such a long a time I let it become 'normal' for me, and I didn't really question that life could be different. If it wasn't for my wife prompting me to look for help, I think I probably would be stuck in that same cycle today. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for keeping me on track, and showing me that what I thought was normal, was actually far from it!

There are some people that fit into their careers almost like it was always meant to be that way, and thankfully Andy, you are one of them. I've gained so much from our sessions and have experienced such a sense of release over the past few months. It is actually quite emotional for me to write this to you, though I want you to know what an impact you have had in getting me to this this place where I feel happy to be alive. With such gratefulness to you Andy.

From all of us Andy, we want to thank you for being our 'guiding light', and finding that common ground that I talked about on the phone. My daughter seems to have gotten herself a new lease of life, which is good for us all! We're still working on many of the areas you raised and look forward to a Christmas without family trauma - I say with hope!

Didn't ever think that I'd get back to feeling this way, expecially after spending years in limbo, and not knowing where to find help. Dr. Peters said you'd be able to help, and that you did! I know I've already said it Andy, though just wanted to send this card to say what a difference you've made in my life.

Thank you for my one year sober card Andy, I was surprised that you would remember! Life has been so different since making the decision to live without alcohol. It's a cliche, but I'm still getting through each day, a day at a time. I use the strategies you taught me on a daily basis - I have them on a post-it-note on the fridge! You have helped me change my life, and probably saved it. Thank you doesn't seem enough, but it is said from a place of honesty and appreciation.

Thank you for everything Andy. I'm actually feeling tearful writing this to you - I'm feeling in control of my own body, the first time in three years. I'm noticeably more confident and feel full of life. Thank you doesn't seem like enough, so I've sent you some chocolates too!!

To say I was embarrassed making that first call to you doesn't go anywhere near how I felt! By the time I put the phone down I was already feeling relieved to have made the call. My doctor said that you were easy to talk too and would put me at ease - I should have listened to her from the start. You made it all very normal, and nothing at all to shy away from. It's all working down there, and most important I'm more confident than I have been in quite some time.

This all seems to early to thank you, but I feel a mention is needed around how appreciative I am for being there for me - small steps. Since making my decision there have been few people who have truly accepted me, and you are clearly one of them. Lots more work to do I know, though thank you.

Andy, I trust this finds you well. Please accept my greatest thanks for helping me come to terms with the death of my partner. I know life will be different, but you have taught me that I do still have a life to live. Your understanding and patience has been a blessing. Thank you again.

My experience with seeing you has been completely different to previous Therapists I have been with. It was so easy to share my inner-most feelings with you, and I thank you for the patience you afforded me.
