Counselling Testimonials

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

I strongly agree that the person who took my initial call was courteous and helpful, that my counsellor fostered a safe and trusting environment, that my counselor was respectful to my thoughts and feelings and that my counselor helped me reach my counselling goals and I am now able to deal more effectively with issues in my life.

The counseling I have received from Connections Counselling WA has been life changing. I am in a much better head space, and a much better relationship with God. Words cannot express how grateful I am.

I am highly satisfied with my overall experience with Connections Counselling WA.

After years of tormenting myself because something I did in my younger years, Connection Counselling helped me to come to terms with what I had done. I was a complete mess when I first sought counselling and prayed my counsellor would not judge me on the mistakes I made. She not only didn’t judge me on the mistakes I made, she made me feel welcomed and I experienced God’s forgiveness.

I feel blessed that God has put me in the careful and tender hands of this special lady.

I would urge anyone who has tormented themselves over past mistakes to seek counselling. Thank you so much to Connections Counselling for helping me fulfill my dreams and to see myself a worthy and loved child of God.

My counsellor is very understanding and an awesome counsellor. My counsellor understands where I am at and the goals I want to achieve. My walk with The Lord has grown so much in this time; my counsellor has been instrumental in that. I will always be grateful for the knowledge and patience my counsellor has shown me. I have completed some courses my counsellor has recommended and encouraged me to do. Thank you so much Connections Counselling.

Excellent counselling sessions, which helped me through a difficult time of my life. I cannot thank my counsellor enough for the help and counselling that was given. I highly recommend this service to anyone seeking counselling.

I am so grateful for the help I’ve received at Connections Counselling. It’s provided me with the tools to deal with and overcome anxiety so that I can actively participate in and enjoy life so much more.
A few years ago I began to recognise that my thoughts, emotions, feelings and behaviours I was experiencing were not normal and were actually unhealthy but felt powerless to change.
After reaching a crisis point and desiring to seek help I approached my GP who recommend Connections Counselling.

The biggest step was calling and making the appointment and from there I thought “why didn’t I do it earlier.” Talking about anxiety and bringing it out into the light has taken away the power it had over me.

I have received such helpful tools to live life more effectively. It’s liberating! The effects of Counselling have improved relationships around me with my family and friends. I would recommend this to everyone who is struggling, if the help is there, why wouldn’t we take it?

My counsellor has helped me enormously and getting my life back on track. I am not alone.

Thank you for giving our daughter her confidence back.

I would highly recommend anyone who has had a severe pregnancy loss and tormented themselves over it to seek counselling.

I am living that future I longed for and as I am reminded to remember back on how faithful God has been to me, I have much hope as new dimensions are opening up to me.  Thank you Connections Counselling.

It was lovely to see a Christian Counsellor who understands my faith.

The influence to change oneself can be described as a ripple in a pond. All that’s needed is one drop or the first step, the first acknowledgement that something wasn’t quite right in my life. I am now able to make good choices and build on my relationships that were broken. I no longer suffer guilt and shame from my abortions.

I carried anger for many years, I feared for myself and everyone around me. My children have noticed the change in me and in turn, I have watched both of them calm down immensely. I am so proud of who I have become.
