"After trying counselling with a few therapists, all I can say is that I wish I’d found Hazelwood sooner. After struggling with anxiety and depression for over 11 years, I’d seen multiple counsellors but never really got anywhere. From the very first moment, Hazelwood was different. I found my counsellor to be patient, compassionate and completely respectful. I’d urge anyone to get in touch with them."
Having some anxiety now and again is normal. We all worry about things from time to time. We might worry whether we are a good parent, if we’ll keep our job, about our relationship going wrong. These sorts of worries aare normal and a part of life.
Great relationships don’t just happen – they need time, energy and good social skills to stay strong and pass the test of time. With romantic relationships, finding a life partner with whom to share life’s complexities is rarely simple and few relationships are conflict-free.
"I cannot recommend Hazelwood enough. I didn’t think that anyone would be able to help me as I’d tried counselling before. But, the counsellor at Hazelwood helped me to feel in control and more confident in all parts of my life."
