“I was suffering from stress following a change of job, this was significantly impacting my life. I had gone to another centre but the advice there was poor and seemed to just be following a standard answer rather than really digging into my issues. A friend recommended Phil and it was clear from day 1 that he actually cared and had a huge amount of knowledge and skill in the area of stress. I’m not 100% yet but certain I’m on the road to recovery. Phil has quite literally changed my life and stopped me falling into a bottomless pit I could not recommend him more highly.” John – Clerical Role
