Why Choose Oak Leaf Counselling?


Here are some comments from past clients of Oak Leaf Counselling which were gathered via my feedback process and have been used anonymously with permission:


"I felt very reassured and comfortable. Sally was very professional and friendly and saw me just days after I contacted her."

"Very relaxed but professional approach. Felt at ease from the very first moment"

"I felt that I had found the place to come to get the help I needed and that someone would be working with me and supporting me. I felt relieved that I wasn't doing it on my own."

"The balance was just right. I felt I was getting a friendly and helpful listener who knew how to offer help in a very professional manner and someone who made me think about what I was experiencing in a different way, from a different perspective. This encouraged me to start looking at myself in a different, more constructive way."

"Sally appeared to be able to deliver the approach that was required at the time. If I needed a more directive approach it was used or more supportive it was used accordingly. To say she was patient is probably an understatement, but I never felt pressured. The sessions were always delivered at a pace I found comfortable. I always felt that I could draw a close on a subject if I felt I needed to."

"Sally was very professional and supportive. She guided me throughout my time with her. She did not carry me, but gave me the awareness and tools to think for myself and about myself."

"I felt that I was understood and made to feel worthwhile"

"I am now less judgemental towards people and more positive and in control of my life. Thank you."

"I cannot thank you enough for helping me to find myself again. Each time I laugh, loud and long, it is a testiment to the hard work and enthusiasm you have shown to me and I am so grateful for that. It was a priviledge to meet you and work with you. You have given me the courage to look inside myself and to like what I have found hidden there. I say a heartfelt "thank you" to the Big Universe (or the One who made it !) for letting our paths cross and for us to travel side-by-side for a while. Thank you Sally - it was fun too."

"I would encourage anyone to take sessions with Sally. I went to my initial session with a set of preconceived ideas and thoughts on what I needed. To my surprise it went a lot deeper than I thought. I have to say it was probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to do but also one of the most rewarding. It made me re-evaluate my relationships with friends, family, colleagues but most importantly myself."

"For me it was a big step to pursue private counselling, as I thought my problems where just a part of who I was. I didn't realise that I could even get better. It changed my life, but not in the 'Hollywood' sense. It took, and it still does take time and effort, to continue the healing process, and Sally has given me the awareness to identify and adjust my behaviour patterns. Plus she has instilled in me that I can make a difference, and that I can choose not to be a spectator in my own life."

"I would recommend Sally Mitchell to anyone.  I was in a serious hole and Sally has helped me get out and make me think differently towards everything.  Things are more clear and easier to challenge.
Without Sally's help I would be in a position where I wouldn't know what to do with myself.  She deserves a lot of reward for the job and help she does."
