"The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to bloom”
Anais Nin

Paula, 42: Before I met Marianna I felt lost, I didn’t know who I was any more, like I’d lost my identity and I felt like I was drowning. Every day was a struggle. I couldn’t cope with normal day to day activities, I couldn’t work and I didn’t want to be around people. I had seen two counsellors, yet no treatment was successful until I was referred to Full Circle for support.  The service I was given has been amazing, each step carefully considered and was the correct treatment to help me deal with my situation. Marianna has completely changed my life. I’m back to work full time which I love and am dealing with everyday activities. I never thought I would see the light at the end of the tunnel but Marianna never gave up and her strength gave me the strength to continue. 

Colin, 31: I came to Full Circle as I was depressed, after having a breakdown. When I finally admitted that I needed help, I was so scared to have counselling. When I walked through your door, all those fears disappeared. Throughout the time you have worked with me I have become a different person. You have helped me in ways beyond anything I could have hoped or dreamed of. You’ve opened my eyes to a completely different way of life. Now, I have a clear picture of my life and more confidence in myself. Hopefully, this new way of life is going to lead me into an exciting new career. This has been the most rewarding 20 weeks of my life.

Sarah, 32: Full Circle has changed my life by giving me the tools with how to deal with depression and anxiety. Marianna is helpful, patient and understanding.

Marie, 34: Coming to Full Circle has given me practical ways to develop my confidence, self-worth and value. I’ve changed my life completely. I’ve changed jobs to develop a greater quality of life. I’m able to manage stress and anxiety much better using a wide range of strategies. Marianna creates a safe space and allows you to feel fully supported. You feel heard and she provides challenge where needed to help manage situations outside of the sessions. My mental health has vastly improved!

Debbie, 49: I was very low after losing my husband. I’m the back bone of the family and I can’t show my emotions or talk to many of how I felt or it would be a problem to some people thinking I was wanting sympathy. But I wasn’t, I just needed to talk. I couldn’t have got through this without coming to Full Circle. Marianna never judged me and never thought I was losing my mind. I now feel stronger and I’m able to see things in a different light with the support I have received. Thank you so much for helping me through my darkest days.

Andy, 34: When I came to Full Circle I was at the lowest I had ever felt. During my therapy, I have felt my confidence grow and my troubles disappear. Now I feel very confident of my future.

Katie, 37: Full Circle has had such a positive impact on my life. It’s taught me to value myself, make myself a priority and be more assertive. It’s given me tools so that I can get the best out of a situation. I now enjoy life so much more. I would recommend Full Circle Counselling to anyone who wants to work on themselves. Marianna is so insightful, easy-to-talk to and really helps you to get the best for you. 

Nigel, 56: Coming to counselling has changed my perception about myself and changed my life.

Anna, 34: I first accessed therapy to help me deal with issues that I couldn’t discuss with family or friends. Counselling has helped me to tap into issues and help with all aspects of my life. I’m calmer, more accepting, able to deal with stress, slow down, prioritise and prevent a mid-life crisis! Marianna was amazing in building and strengthening my foundations in so many ways. She has made me face problems I never felt possible and enabled me to shine light in dark corners which has made life not so scary.

Hilary, 46: I would highly recommend the service I received from Marianna. I found the atmosphere of the room to be very calming and relaxing compared to previous experiences of therapy. The service I received was outstanding and the advice was practical and actually worked.

Lauren, 32: I’m much happier now, stronger and resilient to a lot of things I wouldn’t have managed well before coming to Full Circle. There’s been improvements in relationships, self-confidence, motivation and a sense of self-worth. This experience of therapy has far exceeded expectations when I first attended of what would be possible as an outcome! The welcoming and supportive environment has made the process of unravelling and rebuilding myself a positive, rather than a traumatic, experience.

Lynne, 57: I was struggling to come out of a deep and long depression and wasn’t making much progress until coming to Full Circle. I’m now seeing myself and my health problems in a different way. I‘ve been able to address other obstacles in my way and the amount of stress in my life has reduced dramatically and I am now able to do things that bring me pleasure and contentment. Thank you so much for providing me with a safe, calm place to unload and for showing me the way forward.

Louise, 33: I first came to Full Circle as I had Postnatal depression, was anxious, tearful and short-tempered. I found the counselling amazing. It’s helped me to make sense of how I feel and the fears I had. I now feel so much more positive about my life and about tackling problems in the future. I'm more enjoyable to be around, I’m not constantly snapping at my family, nor do they walk on eggshells. I feel like I’m making the most of my life.
