Client 7

How did you find Your Elementz?

I decided to contact you as your picture made me feel that you may be a person I could possibly trust (which I don’t do easily),.

Can you remember how you felt when you decided to contact Your Elementz for help?

Contacting you was a bit nerve wracking but you were very friendly and put me at my ease quite quickly.

Can you tell me what have been the most significant benefits of using our sessions?

I found our sessions helpful and insightful and they enabled me to put a big stumbling block to my confidence away for good. I no longer get the little voice in my head saying “your a failure, your no good, your a disappointment. your not good enough”. You enabled me to see that this was not me but someone else telling me these things and that I didn’t need to believe them, that I was in charge. This has made a huge difference to me as now I wear what I want, say what I feel (tactfully of course) and put myself first more often rather than last.

Are there any areas of our work which you have struggled with, or disliked?

I did struggle with trusting you to start with but this was an issue that stemmed from the past and you soon showed me that I could trust you and tell you what I was thinking and feeling without fear of being judged “not good enough”.

If you knew someone looking for counselling, what would you recommend about our sessions?

Would I recommend your services to others? Yes without a doubt. You are friendly, honest and enabled me to explore not only my own thoughts but also the feelings that went with them.
