Testimonials for Robert Patterson

I went to see my family doctor as I had been suffering from low moods. My doctor recommended that it would be good for me to talk to someone about how I was feeling. I wasn’t sure what to expect from counselling as I had never been before. Robert made me feel very comfortable from […]

To say that working with Robert changed my life, would not be an over exaggeration.

I heard about Robert through my family doctor who recommended him. I must admit that it took me some time to contact him, as I was very nervous of talking to someone about my difficulties. I wish now that I hadn’t waited so long, and would highly recommend Robert if you are looking for help […]

Robert helped me through a very tough time, and if it was not for him, I don’t know where I would be today. I can only express so much here, but I hope that I have managed to capture what Robert has done for me, and meant to me in my hours of need, and […]
