    “I just wanted to thank you and let you know how I'm doing. I really am getting there when it come to self love. It's a slow process but I really see a bright future ahead of me now :)  I've been keeping myself busy with work but also making sure I make the time to care for my mental and physical health too.  You showed me how to keep going even when I really felt like I couldn't do it anymore, and to believe in myself, so I just want to thank you so much for all the support you gave to me, I appreciate it more than you'll ever know. You helped me see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and even though I will never forget what I went through, there are healthier ways to deal with it. I hope you are doing well and staying safe with everything that's going on. Thank you again “ (thankyou letter April 2020)

     “I cannot praise the help and counselling I have been given enough.  I would not be where I am now without you.”

     "I would just like to say my overall experience of counselling has been amazing. I have learnt so much and got back much more. The idea of me having counselling was just something that didn't suit me - as sitting down and talking is not me at all. But now I've learnt I can do it and it's not weak, it's more stronger. Thank you for all the support. It's been a good journey." 

    “Thank you so much for being there for me.  I really don’t think I would have made it without your help and support.” 

    "It almost seems glib to say thank you since what you have done for me is so much more than words can ever describe.  I've shared my deepest darkest thoughts and my biggest fears and yet you still greet me like a long lost friend.  You've placed value on my tears when all I could do is cry and you constantly remind me to be kind to myself." 

    "Losing babies is a sad, lonely and desperate time, thank you for walking it with me when no one else seemed to understand." 

    "Thank you for always being there when I need someone to talk to and for your continuing care and support."

    "Just to say a massive thank you.  You have helped me through a really tough time.  It means so much to have had your support."

    "Thank you for everything - you have literally saved my life.  Now I can love my babies in peace."
