My sincerest thanks to Steve Marriott for helping me bring back my daughter.
I was losing the great kid I had worked so hard to raise and at a complete loss as to what to do about it. In just a few sessions, Steve has shown me how to calm the waters, steady the boat and get her back on board - giving me lifelong tools to help us both through the rough patches.
This kind of support is invaluable for all parents in this very scary age of internet and the unimaginable risks available to kids these days.
Thank you Steve - so very much
When I first came to see Steve for counselling I felt scared to open up and talk about a painful experience from years ago. Steve helped me feel more comfortable to talk about things in an open way. As I started to talk about it, I could see how much guilt I was feeling and how this was affecting my relationships. Now I feel I can open up more and there will be less fear and secretiveness in my future relationships. Now I feel less self protective and more trust in life.
I was surprised by how much this experience has changed the way I interact with my family and how we resolve challenges/ conflicts. After only a few sessions, I had begun to feel a change in myself. I have become a more assertive, open and calm person. I found it easier to compose myself in difficult situations and speak honestly and clearly about what was going on for me.
When the rest of my family then went to a few sessions, the whole dynamic of my home life had a really positive turn-around. We are now able to communicate openly and listen to each others perspectives. After this experience I believe my family has become closer and more loving. This service has had an extremely positive impact on my life and those around me, and I see it as very beneficial for future relationships
I would fully recommend this counselling experience. It allowed myself and my family to open up on all different levels.
The one on one and group sessions allowed us the freedom to be heard without feeling judged, the family group meeting allowed us to reconnect what had been lost within our family unit.
Without this opportunity to be counselled as a family I feel we would have continued to disconnect, with disastrous outcomes. These sessions have helped my family to reconnect and we are on our way to living fuller, happier lives. Thank you.
My family has been given a second chance to re-establish a caring and loving environment.
Steve's service has been instrumental in facilitating a platform for relationship repair.
Steve Marriott, in his professional and caring, empathic capacity has transformed the landscape of our family. We were in a troubled place, where dysfunction was the norm.
Due to his input and interaction our family has taken onboard his gentle direction and has emerged out the other side to a vibrant, authentic environment where wholesome, real conversations and actions are the accepted code of conduct.
In a nutshell, this service has provided the catalyst for change that has seen my family transformed.
I cannot give enough thanks to Steve for his support in my journey towards becoming a family therapist. Steve has demonstrated rich knowledge and skills in various issues which include parenting and couple work, engaging difficult clients and working with adolescents. He has been a great support for my work through meaningful discussions and constructive feedback in a non-judgemental manner. Our relationship has developed based on trust and respect, in which I could share with him my joy, pain and frustrations from working with my clients. Steve has also helped me in gaining a deeper insight of this field and in growing in my resilience. I would recommend Steve to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and caring mentor in the journey towards becoming a successful family therapist.
