This is a space for me to add specific feedback from people who have used my service:
TD – 23 August 2021
‘I will be able to access support at university. In addition, a diagnosis explains why I have struggled with many aspects in my life, particularly socially.
Very detailed explanation of the whole process. I was made to feel very comfortable and felt able to ask any questions where necessary. Thank you for your support during the assessment process.’
MB – 2 August 2021
‘From the very start I felt supported and understood. Everything was explained in detail and never felt judged or criticised. It was incredibly easy to chat openly with you and I am very grateful for the initial in person meeting despite covid for building that open relationship.
Even if I had not had a diagnosis of Autism I feel I would have benefitted from the discussions we had.’
MB – 28 June 2021
‘I have started to regarding building little rests / breaks into my schedule as looking after myself (instead of a sign of weakness).’

‘Amazing, helpful, kind and patient to sit and listen for an hour. I would recommend this service to all who need it.’
DE – 8 July 2019
’I enjoyed the [therapeutic] space and its calm atmosphere. It felt like a safe space to engage in discussion.
- The quick and clear communication, and quick access to help
- The feeling of being in control of my own journey
- The feeling that lines of communication were open and that extra communication was not a burden – very, very important
- The complete non-judgemental approach that was experienced and the feeling that any information of any nature could be discussed (I have experienced counselling before that has been judgemental)
- A hard process made much more comfortable by David’s professional manner.
AB – 5 February 2019
What did you think of the therapeutic space?
‘Very cosy and welcoming.’
