Roger is an incredible Counsellor, but far above that, he is an incredible man.
The way he conducts his sessions are completely unlike what I had imagined ahead of my first visit. He has an amazing, natural ability, to make you feel comfortable and safe, he doesn’t judge or patronize, he just listens. His knowledge of human phycology is vast, and you can tell that he really loves helping people.
The reason for me visiting Roger in the first place, was that I was (for the first time in my life) riddled with anxiety, low on confidence and starting to feel depressed. Roger worked with me to understand that what I was feeling was in fact normal and in some cases helpful, but the way I was processing these emotions needed some fine tuning. He would give me things to go away and work on that were relevant to my situation and it was clear that he had taken the time to provide me with personal, well thought out tasks and not just something from the latest edition text book.
He celebrated my successes each week as if they were his own and in many ways I suppose they were.
Whilst I sit here typing this review, I am finding it hard to put in to words, just how valuable my time working with Roger has been. So I will just say this….. If you are “not feeling yourself” or like me feeling depressed and anxious, please reach out to Roger today, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! by 30 Year old male client 2021
"Roger worked with us as a volunteer for 2 years to offer extra support for our clients who have substance misuse issues.
Roger’s attitude, compassion and empathy for our client group has been evident throughout his work and our clients consistently affirm this.
Many of our clients have suffered trauma and neglect so the provision of person-centred sessions has helped them to talk openly in a space free from judgement. In turn, this has provided an environment that has facilitated our clients growth, self-awareness and self-compassion.
We would highly recommend him.
Roger also helped facilitate group therapy sessions and workshops on addiction where he was very supportive." - Toni, on behalf of ANA Treatment Centres, 2018-2020
"Working with Roger has really changed my life. I went to Roger a very broken person with many concerns about how to face the future after a very tough year. I was in a bad place and could see no light I was struggling to function normally everyday. I could not see past a black hole in front of me.
The sessions were in an amazing setting, so peaceful and helped me to relax and talk openly about the issues I was facing. Being on a small farm by the water is amazing at helping to feel at ease while talking.
Rogers's approach to counselling is just what I needed someone to talk to confide in and feel no judgment. I felt I could talk openly and freely and not embarrassed about what I had to say or my personal problems I was going through. Roger listened and gave amazing advice at the end of each session and set some goals and things to look at for the week ahead. His approach to helping sort through what I saw was a tangled mess really helped me to get back on my feet. We looked at each problem in turn, how I could deal with these, and slowly working through the issues allowing me to feel I was making progress and that there was a future that could face.
After my 6 weeks with Roger, I feel like a new man, I am feeling confident, happy, and that life is worth living again. If you are struggling and need an amazing place to talk and a fantastic counsellor that really can make a difference Roger is your man. I have gone from feeling that I no longer wanted to be here to feeling my old happy self and that life can be good again. " - Male Client, 2020
"I started counselling sessions with Roger as I was experiencing stress and feeling overwhelmed. He was very friendly and down to earth. I felt very at ease and as if I could talk about anything, without judgement. He was always understanding and empathic. As well as talking through my problems, we also explored my thoughts, emotions, and feelings.
He offered alternative ways of doing this, such as a sand tray. This helped me explore things in a different way, gain an alternative perspective and get in touch with the emotions underlying the stress and where these originated from. As well as exploring my options and solutions. After only 5 sessions I was feeling less stress, more myself and able to look forward to the future." - Female Client, 2021
"Roger was able to unlock things in my brain that I didn't even know existed. He enabled me to understand my thoughts and feelings and explain where they might be coming from. It's crazy to think how far I've come in my time with Roger and I'm a new person since. If you're willing to work hard it can make a substantial difference in your life. The skills you learn are for life and will always be there if you need them."- Male Client 2021
