"Ian gave me hope when I had given up on myself, just by being there with me through a rough time..."
"Ian immediately created an atmosphere of trust and respect. He noticed and shared little details about me which made me feel seen and appreciated ... It really helped to share my story in a safe and supportive space ..."
"It was great to work with someone who understood my culture ... my language ... a native speaker ... I didn't have to keep explaining over what I meant all the time."
"My [relationship] felt dead. I felt guilty, angry, and very alone ... Ian gave me some space to just talk about all that ... until I could make some sense out of it all and move on."
"I ended up with a [substance] problem ... and it just sort of snowballed. Ian gave me the time I needed to find myself again."
"Ian was so helpful... I was so anxious all the time, I just couldn't sleep. I was a wreck. I called Ian and we just talked for a bit. I needed that..."
"I was getting close to a burn-out, I kind of knew it, but couldn't admit it to myself ... and talking it through with Ian helped me to get a different perspective on what was happening..."
"My [partner] got made redundant and got counselling at work. I was all over the place and trying to manage it myself and not being very kind to anyone or to me. Ian gave me a place where I felt really safe to talk about it... safer than my friends or family who were too involved."
"I didn't have any friends and I was really anxious about finding them. My work colleagues were ok, but I just couldn't settle. Working with Ian helped me get my confidence back and make a fresh start."
"I came here as a [displaced person] and I was all alone. I couldn't really talk about it in my community either. But I could with Ian..."
"We were thinking about getting married, but having a few shakes. We just needed someone to talk it through with who ... someone would keep our problems confidential."
"We had a load of stuff going on at home and could never find a place to talk ... so much going on. We tried those self-help books ... Sitting in a calm place with someone helping who didn't judge - although that was hard too sometimes - really helped."
"I didn't know how to tell anyone in my family that I felt my sexuality was kind of fluid, including my [partner] and my parents ... I felt really silenced... with all this stuff going on emotionally. It was a tough time, but experimenting with Ian about how to talk about it with them helped me lots ... and now I've found a way to do it ..."
"My bio clock was ticking and I had to make some tough choices; Ian helped there by not judging... "
