Testimonials from our Clients
We have been privileged to help countless individuals throughout Surrey with our counselling services. Below you can view just some of the feedback we have received.
At the worst time in my life, I was grasping around trying to find someone who could listen and help me try to make sense of my world which had come crashing down and no longer made any sense whatsoever. I felt like a little boat out in a raging sea with no anchor, no one to steer, and everything so dangerous – being constantly battered by enormous waves. Filled with huge anxiety and fear, I knew I had to do something. Plucking up courage I tried various contacts I had been given or had ‘googled’ only to hear an answering machine or to be told to fill in a form but there was a long waiting list. Jenny was the only one who said, ‘Yes, let’s meet’. I met her the next day at her office and immediately got that she understood what I was going through. Immediately there was some relief, and I was able to open up more. Jenny listened patiently with empathy and understanding. By the end, I even managed a smile and felt a little lighter. Jenny has literally been my lifeline at a very dark time for me and my family. She gave me hope at a time when I had none and didn’t know which way to turn. Her positive energy helped me see that although this awfulness would never go away, there was hope. I will be forever grateful to this amazing lady and her wonderful charity.
I was visited by Lucy’s Mum, Jenny. It was wonderful to speak with her, she knew what I was going through. It was a moment of sanity and clarity in my darkest hours. They provided me six sessions with an amazing therapist who I still see today. They gave me a lifeline, hope and faith, that I could survive and be ok. For that I am so grateful, I don’t know where I would be today without them.
I have suffered several suicides of close family members, of a friend and attempted suicides of other family members and myself. I was referred to Lucy Rainer foundation coming out of psychotherapy in the NHS. Initially the idea was that I might benefit from some further counselling but on discussion the sessions would be limited and in fact I would benefit from more long-term support. As such I have joined the women’s group support session, which is held each week for an hour, discussing wellbeing and providing mutual peer support. I find the group to be a good support and to be a nice space to share and support each other – It is good to bring up issues, not serious mental health issues but more day to day sort of things that many people experience and for us to work out ways to collectively have a little bit more sunshine in our lives. People with serious mental health issues can also benefit from tackling the daily, little and achievable things that make live better. The group is part of a number of things I use to support myself – including professional mental health support – but it is an important part and is valued.
It was nice to get things off my chest….I felt I could talk about anything and not feel embarrassed or judged. I’ve learnt that it’s OK to not be OK. I’m going to try to be more confident in myself and move on from past trauma and have a brighter, optimistic look on the future. It was very good and helped me a lot. Thank you.
I just want to say a huge Thankyou to you all. I called up last year about my 19-year-old daughter who was feeling depressed & anxious, you phoned me back straight away which was amazing as I was also feeling depressed, it actually made me feel so much better that there was someone out there that cared & wanted to help, Thank you so so much. I also came to one of your lady’s groups on a Wednesday evening which was good fun ( sorry I haven’t been back I’ve been working. My daughter has now completed her 6 counselling sessions & is feeling a lot better, she has even applied for her dream job in cabin crew that she was feeling so anxious about & had an interview for this, this week. You really do make a difference
I am really grateful for the counselling sessions with Denisa and will miss them! She was absolutely lovely, kind, empathic, open minded and easy to talk to. She shows genuine interest and care and I’ve found it a real pleasure and so helpful to work with her. I’d also like to say a big thank you to Jenny and Sandie for their time and help. What a wonderful charity the Lucy Rayner Foundation is to provide counselling free of charge and so quickly such an amazing support that would otherwise not have been available to many people. I feel privileged to have received such a service and would definitely recommend it to others
