Since having counselling with John in Highgate I have become a lot more positive about my life and the situations I’ve been faced with. I have been seeing him for about a year. I was extremely anxious and depressed at the beginning of our sessions. To have someone see things from my point of view was been really helpful and refreshing. John made me feel really at ease and I felt comfortable opening up to him. I’m feeling better each week.
I went to John as I was having problems with my relationship and talking to him helped me to identify where things were going wrong. I ended up having some sessions on my own and some with my husband. We’re back on track now and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend John to friends.
My addictions were ruling my life and at thirty when I found myself anxious, depressed, alone and broke I knew I needed to get some help. I felt angry with myself and angry with the world. I found John very easy to talk to and felt very comfortable in his company. The room in Highgate was very discreet. It’s still a daily battle to stay sober but I’m proud to say that I’ve been clean for 5 months and I’m determined to live a full life. No more hiding behind drink and drugs.
I’ve suffered from depression since I was a teenager. I guess my childhood was pretty traumatic really and my family life was very unstable and my relationships in general were fragmented. Ive always felt a burden on people which in turn made me feel very guilty. During my sessions with John, we have discussed a lot around my childhood and ways of dealing with this feeling of guilt I have. I can now say, thanks to Johns help I feel a lot better about myself and I don’t blame myself for things that happened in my past that were out of my control. The practice in East Finchley was local too which made the process even easier.
