I just wanted to thank you and let you know how I'm doing. I really am getting there when it come to self love. It's a slow process but I really see a bright future ahead of me now. I've been keeping myself busy with work but also making sure I make the time to care for my mental and physical health too. You showed me how to keep going even when I really felt like I couldn't do it anymore, and to believe in myself, so I just want to thank you so much for all the support you gave to me, I appreciate it more than you'll ever know. You helped me see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and even though I will never forget what I went through, there are healthier ways to deal with it. I hope you are doing well and staying safe with everything that's going on. Thank you again

You gave me respect. I am 100% impressed it’s helped me so much. Shame it wasn’t offered at my doctors, I only got here via a chance meeting at Helping Hands in Wigston.

I cannot praise the help and counselling I have been given enough. I would not be where I am now without you.

The counselling has been really helpful in helping me deal better with the loss of my baby and has helped me see the tools I can use to help myself in the future.

I feel so much calmer thanks to your help

Seeing You has changed my life you have helped me so much. I have had counselling before in the past and hated it. I vowed I would never do it again but my counsellor from Jakin was amazing, I’m so happy I came here.

The counselling sessions have helped me put into words what was jumbled up in my head. You have given me my voice back and helped me to be able to talk about my loss instead of have to hide away, thank you.

I would just like to say my overall experience of counselling has been amazing. I have learnt so much and got back much more. The idea of me having counselling was just something that didn't suit me - as sitting down and talking is not me at all. But now I've learnt I can do it and it's not weak, it's more stronger. Thank you for all the support. It's been a good journey.

Thank you so much for being there for me. I really don’t think I would have made it without your help and support.

It almost seems glib to say thank you since what you have done for me is so much more than words can ever describe. I've shared my deepest darkest thoughts and my biggest fears and yet you still greet me like a long lost friend. You've placed value on my tears when all I could do is cry and you constantly remind me to be kind to myself.

Losing babies is a sad, lonely and desperate time, thank you for walking it with me when no one else seemed to understand.

Thank you for always being there when I need someone to talk to and for your continuing care and support.

Just to say a massive thank you. You have helped me through a really tough time. It means so much to have had your support.

Thank you for everything - you have literally saved my life. Now I can love my babies in peace.

I was made to feel comfortable from the word go. I never felt rushed or judged. My sessions have helped me to come to terms with my loss and the circumstances surrounding it. I have learnt how to process my grief in a healthy way. I can't thank you enough.

Jakin was a wonderful support for me, you gave me time to talk over lots of ongoing issues and I never felt rushed or pressured during our sessions. I learned so many strategies to help with my anxieties. I know if I ever need further support in the future that I won't have to think twice about contacting you. Thank you for everything.

I have got a lot out of the service. I have learnt a lot about why I feel the way I do and it has really helped me process my emotions and communicate in a much more positive way. Thank you.
