WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Warming and welcoming lady. Lovely peaceful room which really helps put you at ease. Would recommend to anyone looking for that first step to talk to someone Caroline really opened my eyes on things
I’ve been a client of this service for over 4 years and with the help and support provided have come a long way - this is largely due to support provided. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone thinking of beginning any treatment. Caroline has not only been a stable and consistent support as a professional, she has enabled me to progress through things I had deemed insurmountable. 5/5
I would highly recommend HCS. Caroline is such a wonderfully supportive person who makes you feel instantly at ease. She is extremely understanding, insightful and empathic with a sincerely non judgemental attitude. If you are looking for a counsellor I wouldn't hesitate to contact Caroline, you'll be in safe hands
Wonderful, caring experience, which put my life back on track, thank you HCS!
Caroline has been a very warm supportive supervisor and I have learnt a lot from her. I would definitely recommend her.
