Some testimonials from Sentient Counsellings clients:

    “Thanks for all your help I appreciate your patience in helping me through a very difficult period in my life.”

    D from Dungannon

    “Darren was able to help me understand the reasons behind my constant fears and anxiety. I never once felt judged or criticised when exploring my worries and he helped me see and deal with things in a more confident manner. Although at first I felt sure I couldn’t be helped now I would urge others to seek help if they need it”

    P from Bangor

    “Thank you for all your help. I feel like you really listened to me and you have helped me manage my inner struggles in a healthier way”

    J from Belfast

    “Thank you for the help and support you’ve given me. I feel able to start afresh and move forward positively”

    R from Belfast

    “I know I may still have a way to go but that’s okay. I feel I understand myself better than I did two short months ago and feel more able to challenge my fears and unhelpful thoughts rather than run from them. Thank you for your attentiveness and gentle way of helping me explore what had been holding me back all these years.”

    F from Dungannon

    “I thought counselling would be difficult and intrusive. I felt ashamed and worried about what you would think of me when I opened up but you were always attentive and I never felt judged once. Thank you Darren for helping me to accept myself as I am and not what i think others expect of me. I feel I can now let go of that shame and move forward in a more positive way.”

    L from Belfast

    “I was at a point where I didn’t have enough self belief to move forward and engage with life. Darren was patient, easy to talk to and helped me start doing the thinGs I had been afraid to do”

    R from Lisburn

    “You have helped me understand the feelings of guilt and fear I’ve developed as a result of certain experiences in my past. Not only that but you have helped me let go of those difficult feelings and move forward in a more healthy and positive way. Thank you”

    J from Newtownabbey

    “When I came to you I was at one of the lowest points of my life and almost totally disillusioned about making any progress through counselling. As our sessions went you helped me challenge the beliefs that had ruined my life, allowing me to express myself and grow in a safe environment. With your help I now feel hope that I can make something of my life and find happiness.I will not forget your compassion, empathy and willingness to push me when I struggled to do it myself. Thank you.”

    A from Coleraine

    “I sought Darren’s help when I was going through a turbulent time in my life and had reached the point where I needed help to discover why things weren’t working out for me. Darren guided me through a journey of self exploration and helped me gain an awareness of myself and my life situation that I had been seeking all my adult life. He gave me the tools to move forward and start enjoying life again and to hopefully improve on future relationships. Darren is an empathetic, emotionally intelligent person who lends a non-judgmental ear, he gently steered me through deep seated, highly sensitive, negative and emotionally charged feelings which had been buried deep within my psyche. I cannot thank Darren enough for his help. It really has changed my life. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help.”
