When I first started counselling, I was going through a traumatic year and felt my life was a mess. Thanks to the support and help I received, I am able to see things in a total new perspective which I would have never been able to before. I feel this has really benefited me and will be very useful in the future. I cannot recommend Liam O' Grady and this organisation more highly as it allowed me to explore my ongoing feelings and thoughts in a safe, non-judgmental place. I found it extremely helpful as they would accommodate and facilitate me for any appointments I needed.
