If you never help another person you have helped me. My doctor assured me that my issues would be safe and that you would be able to work with that
difficult stuff. From our first meeting I knew you would be everything he painted of you. It is now six months since our sessions ended and my thanks
remain just as strong.
My story is/was one of abuse and low self-esteem over many years. You helped me with issues of guilt and shame, innocence, acceptance, anger and frustration.
I think at one stage you called them elemental forces. Thank you so much for helping me to accept that I am allowed to cry and rage and that I have every right to.
I still go there from time to time but I know I do so as my own therapist now. You may not know this but you have also helped two of my friends.
Thank you is never enough but a million of them might go some way.
Your kindness, professionalism and dedication to helping me resolve the very difficult issues I was facing when we first met gave me the confidence that I had acquired
a powerful ally as soon as I walked in your door. Very quickly, with the help of EMDR, you brought about a turnaround in my situation and I experienced a shift in terms
of the trauma that had been weighing down on me for so long. These words are a modest way of expressing my profound gratitude for your help. Thank you so much.
I don't quite know what to say to you, except that I will be eternally grateful for your wonderful help - without it, I don't know where I'd be. I will always remember
you as a good, kind friend.
“If I accept you as you are, I will make you worse; however, if I treat you as though you are what you are capable of becoming, I help you become that”.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
I’m not one for writing Peter but thank you mate for all you did for me. I used to be in bits but I’m not now. Hope I never have to see you again but if I do
I know you will help me. All the very best.
When I met you for the first time you knew through my doctor how bad I was. It was terrible and things were just black. Thank you for staying with me
through that awful time and for getting me through it. I continue to make progress. Your help was invaluable to me and the sun shines once more ... even through the clouds!
Only you and I know my journey and I am now living independently. You helped me get the strength and courage that enabled me to break the long
cycle of oppression and abuse I was subject to. Remember our “Hell is other people –No man is an island” session? I didn’t know it at the time but I
believe that marked a big turning point for me. Looking back I can see how crucial your complete acceptance of me was. I know ‘what it says on the tin’
about therapy but you truly are passionate about your work and that helped me enormously. May you never change Peter and use that passion to help others.
From the heart many many thanks and best wishes for the future.
