“The Listening Centre is exceptional in terms of their overall work ethic including reliability, confidentiality and professionalism whilst at the same time providing the authority with good value for money.”
In the lead up to Christmas, due to a combination of workplace and home issues I had a breakdown and went off sick from work. I was as near to rock bottom as I could possibly be, and didn’t think I could carry on with life. My employer convinced me to give counselling a go and I reluctantly agreed, not believing it would make any difference.
Right from the moment that first phone call took place due to the nature of the person I spoke with I felt a weight had been lifted. From then until my first appointment it was such a speedy and seamless process.
Without this service, I don’t think I’d be here. My counsellor saved my life. She was so open, natural and professional in every aspect. At the start of our sessions I was a firm believer that I was no good to anybody but within a couple of sessions she made me realise that I did have qualities and that I was worth it and that people did care. Thanks to my therapy I actually managed to return to work part time. I had a few extra sessions to support me during that initial period which proved crucial as even though I was still a mess, I couldn't face going into a classroom. Thanks to the support of my colleague, my counselling and management/HR I have now returned to work full time and back teaching.
I would recommend you to anyone as to me you are lifesavers and I can't be the only person who feels like this about what you do. Excellent service.
