Thom is a great person to go on a voyage of self-discovery with. His incredible insight and intuition really takes you to where you need to be, but never in a forceful way, always at your own pace with lots of support and encouragement and totally without any judgment. He is very easy to talk to and I always felt confident that there was 100% confidentiality, so I could be open, honest and frank. We covered a whole range of issues that I had been through and surprisingly it wasn't always the major traumas that were the problem. Some of the revelations throughout the journey were quite painful, but they were necessary and acted as a 'release'. So, 'thank you' Thom for guiding me through the experience and enabling me to really 'see'.

I want to record my grateful thanks to you, Thom, for all you have encouraged me to achieve over the past year. You helped to restore my self confidence and a belief in myself in such a kind and caring way. Your support gave me the tools to put the past behind me, to live in 'the now' and to be hopeful for the future - I will be eternally grateful that a simple Google search led me to your door. Serendipity?

You are a very special person - patient, non-judgmental, knowledgeable and utterly professional. I immediately felt comfortable in your warm and inviting office, and, even when the conversation was painful, always felt the warmth of your empathy and understanding. What a memory too! - although you must have many clients, you always remember what we have discussed previously - a real gift.

I will miss our meetings but am optimistically looking forward to a new and happier 'phase four' of my life. Heartfelt thanks for showing me the way.

Firstly, I want to say that Thom is a counsellor who great for putting you at ease and helps you to open up about your issues in life. When I first began, I was nervous, reserved and afraid but Thom helped me bring myself out of my shell with his non-judgmental, sensitive and attentive approach to therapy. He is able to switch your mentality and divert your attentions away from focusing on the possibilities and reverting to practiality. He is helpful particularly in viewing situations from a range of angles and gently challenging and encouraging you to challenge your own assumptions about what ever situation you bring to counselling. I have always found Thom to be extremely professional and open with me on anything I have discussed with him. He is very attentive to information that you provide and has often recalled many key pieces of information from past session to influence present ones. I am very glad that I have met Thom and have undertaken his help in rediscovering myself and building my own sense of belief, confidence and resolve.

Thank you so so so so much!

Thank you for your help and support through a very difficult time. I don't think I would have been able to get through this as well without it.

I just wanted to say that as much as I've felt 'alone' and a little lost, in my own unique way, now that I've stopped my sessions, I also feel confident that I'm on the right path and I have to say that without your help over the last 18 months I would I wouldn't be where I am now. You've been an enormous support, a never judging ear and just what I needed all those months ago when I first approached you. So thank you for providing me with the opportunity to let out all the stuff I've been carrying round - and I applaud you for not yawning once!! Take care Thom and thank you!

Ok so i'm the one who never leads feedback but on this occasion i just have to make an exception!

Thank you Thom for your unbelievable patience and understanding. I have given you so much grief over the past few months yet you have stuck by me giving me endless support and guidance throughout. You have answered every single text message and email I sent you and frequently managed to fit me in for extra sessions whenever i needed them.

I am amazed at the topics of conversation between us, things i never imagined talking about especially with a man!

Admittedly i'm not where i need to be just yet but therapy for me has been quite intense and i'm grateful you respect and understand my need to take a break, at least for a while. I honestly have no idea right now whether I will be able to return to face up to my inner torment but one thing for sure, should this be possible, there is nowhere else i would rather be.

Thank you so so much for my last amazing session which made me feel so good when you left me with no doubt that your door would always be open and that you would be there for me should i find the strength to continue.

In conclusion, you've taught me that i don't need to cope with life's difficulties and challenges alone and i can only re-iterate what others have said before me.

Until we 'hopefully' meet again, take care of my chair ........................C No 5 (female)

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Thom following my recent counselling sessions. I saw Thom around 5 years ago for a short period but needed to get further counselling mid way through 2013. I had no hesitation in finding Thom again. The last 6 months have been the toughest of my life for a variety of reasons and the way Thom has supported me can never be repaid. He listens, doesnt judge and, crucially, is honest enough to tell me the truth even if it is not always easy to hear. This honesty has been key in allowing me to address certain issues. 

Thom instanty and without effort makes you feel relaxed and at ease. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Finally, Thom, thnak you so much for your time but particularly for seeing me at relativiely short notice last November. Words can't express how much that appintment in particular meant to me.

Many thanks and best wishes Thom.

Thom,

Where to start? My experience of therapy with you was perfect timing in terms of my 'journey in life'. Your empathic, caring demeanour, your honesty and openness really helped me look at painful, raw stuff in a totally 'safe way'.

As you know, I'm also a therapist, and as such, have experienced 'good therapy' as well as 'not so good'. You are certainly in the 'superb camp' (undoubtedly!), and as such a fabulous professional role model.

Thank you for sharing my tears and laughter. X

I can’t praise or recommend Thom enough. On a personal level he is a great person with a relaxing and interesting persona. On a professional level he is clearly very well researched in his field of expertise with a dept of knowledge which really helped me. When I first met Thom I had issues with general anxiety/health anxiety and often worried about ‘unrealistic’ things. Being a busy professional and having a young family this was a big risk to my career and family life (not good…). After trying medication which did very little for me I saw Thom’s website and decided to go and see him.

I was in quite a bad place when I first met him and after approximately 15 weekly sessions I have made a great ‘recovery’ and feel back to my old self again. Thom helped me to look at things from a different perspective and to anyone who doubts the power of therapy – try Thom !

Thanks again, and if I ever need any help in this area again you’ll be the first to know.

I really wanted to thank Thom for his hard work, and recommend him to anyone who is looking for a therapist/counsellor. 

Thom is incredibly honest, patient and down to earth, which makes it incredibly easy to open up to him, convey feelings and talk about any sort of topic.

I saw Thom for a relatively short amount of time (9 sessions) due to relocating to a different part of the country, but in this short amount of time, the issues which I came to Thom with have all started to improve, and will hopefully continue to do so.

I don't see Thom just as a therapist, but more like a friend who I can talk about anything to, which I believe is a much better relationship to have with a therapist than just feeling like a patient.

I can't recommend Thom highly enough, and am very lucky to have
