"I feel my real self again"

Treatment Received: Holistic Health Consultation
Mindfulness Therapy for stress

I have been suffering with stress and been on medication but nothing seemed to really help. Someone recommended OPAL and said I should ask to see Ray. After the very first session that I had, I noticed a real difference. I thought that I would need to have lots of sessions over a number of months but I had just five sessions with Ray and I am able to manage my stress and function normally!
What a great place and thank you Ray for your understanding. At last, I feel my real self again.

"I would recommend"
5 50Reviewed 31 Mar 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Counselling
I attended OPAL as I was suffering from extreme anxiety. I couldn't cope with the feelings anymore. Since then my life, my feeling in my life, has changed totally. The difficulties are the same but all my fear, anxiety, etc is so much more manageable. I feel peace and joy now! I have compassion toward those who I felt have hurt me, or with whom I have had difficulty. Ray suggested 'mindfulness practice' to me, and I attend the Friday evening mindfulness group in the OPAL centre. I come out feeling So great. My husband is amazed at the change in me. I have grown without trying. I would recommend ANYONE ANYWHERE to attend a session, a talk, a course, a workshop...You have nothing to lose, everything to gain! The OPAL centre is a safe harbour, a light, a welcoming and accepting place. I am SO BLESSED to have found it, and to know Ray as a mentor, counsellor, guide.
