You helped save my life

Posted on: 14 Jun 2017


I would truly like to thank you.

I came here this time because I was scared of losing my job. In the beginning it was a half hearted attempt at looking like I was doing something about it.

You are the first counsellor I have met that has actually listened and wanted to look at why rather than a quick lets get the units down, then my job is done, which always results in relapse.

This made me want to open up to you, and in time I changed my mind about why I came, and realised that really there is no place for alcohol in my life anymore.

I'm not there yet, and wish I could have sessions with you until I am (which I will mention in the feedback form, as I feel every case should be assessed individually and not given a set 6 block allowance.) I am although extremely grateful I've had 12 with you. I will get there.

I have a much more positive outlook about my life now, and I'm looking forward to my future journey, finding out who I really am without alcohol.

Thank you so much for all your help in helping me sort through all my s**t.

You have helped save my life.
