Working with Karla over the last few months has been incredible and I feel as if a weight has been lifted off my shoulders by sharing my story with her and have her warmth and gentle guidance in response. I decided to try counselling for the first time after feeling my relationship with my family members was incredibly strained and causing me stress. This was exacerbated by lockdowns, blurred boundaries within the family and family who had issues with abuse of alcohol. Working with Karla has really made me feel validated and given me the confidence and support to make small positive changes to focus my energy and attention on aspects of my life that make me happy. I’m so glad I made the decision to attend and so glad I met someone as nice and approachable as Karla. I would 100% recommend to anyone, even if you have not tried counselling before I think it’s a great safe place to explore it.
We found the service very good for our son who was suffering from anxiety due to school pressure. They were very reassuring and help us understand the situation. We are lucky to have this service in our town. Well done
I went to see Caroline when I was at my lowest. I was overwhelmed with anxiety and work related stress. Not only did Caroline help me to manage my feelings towards work but also helped me to dig down and find some of the root causes of my anxiety and low self esteem, which I have experienced for years. I now have a new mindset and approach towards my stressors and anxieties. I cannot recommend Caroline & The DMC Clinic enough.
Ruth was recommended to us by our GP as we were extremely concerned about our teenage son who had become anorexic. Attending the counselling sessions with Ruth helped him to begin to face up to one of the main issues which contributed to his anorexia i.e. bullying. While he found opening up difficult, it was very beneficial to him to speak to someone outside the family and he was able to discuss issues he had buried away for a long time, and begin his road to recovery.
|Working with Karla really helped me to pinpoint and overcome my anxiety. It has helped me to deal with work-related issues that were really getting me down and I now feel I can thrive again in my job as a result!|
After struggling with a lot of anxiety over the years, Caroline helped me to look within myself and find the root of a lot of my issues. I now have the tools I need to deal with my anxiety and have found peace within myself. I always felt comfortable to speak freely and truthfully about my emotions which was liberating in itself. Coming to the DMC Clinic was the best decision I’ve ever made for myself.
I have suffered with depression and anxiety for 20 years and over this time I am sought out many professionals to help me deal with this. It was not until I met Ruth that I truly opened up. On our first session I opened up about things I had never spoken about. I found it so easy to talk to Ruth as she was never judgemental, I was totally at ease from day one. I cannot recommend Ruth highly enough. She really is number one in this field.
I really enjoyed working with Leanne. She was always incredibly friendly and warm, and created a very safe and comfortable environment for discussing sensitive issues. She never really told me “do this, do that”, but instead asked the right questions that allowed me to tap into my own inner wisdom and guidance. An incredibly supportive person, with her help I am emotionally and mentally a much stronger and resilient person on the other side of our sessions. Highly recommend.
I done several sessions with Caroline and I found it very helpful. I felt at ease and found it very easy to talk and communicate throughout all our sessions. Great service , highly recommended.
When I went to see Karla for the first time I was struggling with a lot of different issues that combined had taken a toll on me not just mentally but physically. Not only did I think that there would never be any light at the end of the tunnel, any way of understanding or overcoming what had happened in my life but what I really did not realise is that there was much more going on. Not only did Karla help me see the light again and help me understand and move on but she managed to find things hidden in my past that I didnt even realise were effecting how I looked at things now. Now moving on in to my future, I am a different person, a better, stronger person. Karla has helped me in more ways than I ever expected when I first decided to seek counselling. She has helped me improve my work life, manage my stress, love myself again and move on from my past. Thank you so much Karla, you have literally changed my life.
