What people say

From a proud survivor due to Counselling in the Community.

Everything was 100% GREAT. From walking through the door at the 1st appointment until my final meeting. Counsellor was very easy to talk to and listened to everything I had to say. It also helps me knowing I can phone up anytime even though my counselling has ended. Very strongly recommend this service.

I have been supported and listened to without judgement but kindness. Together I’ve got on the right path for the future with the next chapter of my life. Well don to you all for the tremendous job you do for our community.

Although I found myself in the unfortunate position of needing counselling, I consider myself fortunate that I was able to access your invaluable service. What a difference you must make to people in the community. I can’t thank you enough for being there when I needed you. Keep up the good work in the knowledge that you make a huge difference.

Stuart, thank you for helping me through the darkest point of my life. We wish you every success.

It has been lovely to be able to talk freely about my situation. It has definitely helped me cope with things in my life. Thanks so much.

This is a short 30 minute session where we assess your needs and gather some general information, like contact details and your availability. It's where we get to know you and you can see what you think of us too.

We ask for donations to cover our running costs, no salaries are paid from this. I'm sure you'll all agree the cost of everything has increased at an alarming rate and as a community service we like to offer all our clients tea or coffee during their session. You kind donations contribute towards this, Thank you.

In your first session you will meet your counsellor. You will both go through the Counsellor and Client Agreement. This is where we explain our ways of working, which includes attendance, contact,confidentiality and ethics. After this you will be invited to share whatever it is that has brought you to CITC and of course you will be offered tea or coffee.
