Patricia Lyon Counselling & Therapy has helped many people over the years to deal with a variety of issues. From anxiety and depression to bereavement or relationship troubles, I have been able to provide the understanding and support that people needed to make progress and lead happier and fuller lives.
See below for some testimonials I have received from people who have benefitted from my counselling services. Call me in Glasgow on 07732 324387.
"I was so overwhelmed with everything going on in my life that I did not know where to start. I was fed up with my family giving me their opinion and advice. Patricia just let me tell my story, rant about all my problems, cry when I needed to then begin to sift the wood from the trees. She helped me see what could be changed and what couldn't; how to let go of stuff I had no power to change and how to accept that some things just can't be fixed. I physically felt the overwhelm and the weight of life lifting from me. Over the course of several weeks I worked on issues at my pace. Patricia never told me to do anything, preferring to encourage me to find my own solutions, only giving me possible options when my brain was stuck.I feel unstuck now. I still have problems in my life but I can manage them now. I would not have been able to without the work I did with Patricia."
"As a bloke, I wasn't very keen on counselling despite my GP encouraging me. However, I was fed up being depressed so decided to give it a go. The NHS waiting list was 2 months long so I found Patricia's private practice on a local directory and went along to have an initial chat. She put me at ease straight away and reassured me that I would not have to talk about anythng I did not want to. I had weekly sessions for 8 weeks then 4 monthly sessions. It changed my life and helped me think differently about my situation. Counselling also helped me understand and change some deep set life patterns that I kept repeating. The investment in myself was so worth it. I have my life back."
"Patricia has a great ability to make you feel supported in the changes you want to make in your life whilst at the same time providing constructive challenge that has allowed me to have insights into my behaviour, which continue to support me in the positive changes I have made in my life and in my relationships."
"Patricia's knowledge, insight and understanding has led me to a place in my life and in my head that I never thought was possible again. Patricia showed me how to find myself again and respect myself. I have my life back. Without counselling and support, this would never have happened."
"As a solution focused male; I was shocked to find myself suffering anxiety attacks and feeling as if life was out of control. Six sessions with Patricia and I'm back to my old confident self. Her ability to teach communication skills in the workplace means that I now have a different relationship with some of my colleagues and feel empowered again. i will be referring you to others. Thank you."
"All I want to say is Thank You and encourage others to come and work with you."
