The best thing I ever did was pick up the phone and call Valerie.

I was a 30 year old woman and my life was a mess from the effects of abuse. Making a decision to start counselling is not an easy one.

Valerie's warm, empathetic way has been a lifeline for me at times.
She is an excellent listener and is not afraid to push you when it's needed but also to be a calm voice in the chaos while your life is falling apart.
I have experienced so many emotions during our sessions, laughter, anger, tears but especially joy at the steps forward: big or small or occasionally backwards and then we would just pick up and try again.

A warm person with a positive and non judgemental attitude. I highly recommend Valerie as a Therapist.
I am and always will be so grateful I made that call.
I am more than happy to refer Valerie Attrill for counselling services as I can not speak highly enough of Valerie and help provided to people I personally know throughout the local community.
