Thank you so much for everything that you have done for me without you I wouldn’t have got past this stage and honestly I’m so happy that you were so understanding and easy to talk to about anything and everything. Thank you so much.
From the first session to the last, Rachael made me feel comfortable and relaxed, to be able to express myself without judgement. It didn't take long to build up a rapport with her, which made me feel all the more comfortable. The sessions felt informal and not regimented, it felt like I was chatting to a caring friend, and learnt so much about myself and others, which helped me immensely to sort out my issues.
Rachael is very professional but more importantly, she cares and I truly can't thank her enough.
Looking forward to the next one, thanks to everyone for making it a very enjoyable experience.
Really great night. Was such a relief to have a grown up night and chance to chat. Thanks Rachael Blackmore !! I really enjoyed it and definately would go again. As someone who went on their own everyone was very welcoming and friendly.
It was a really good evening. Much better to do something different! Look forward to future events xxx Big thanks to Rachael and Nigel
Thank you Rachael and Nigel - it was so much fun! What a lovely group of people! Looking forward to the next one
Hearing about Finding Mr Darcy has been a catalyst for me to change. I've changed my outlook on dating and most importantly started thinking about what I want. This has led to me setting my own boundaries and sticking to them rather than bending them to please others. Thank you Rachael for starting the conversation and organising events for like minded people. I for one am feeling positive about this journey
I will certainly consider having counselling again if need be (hopefully not). My relationships and feelings of anxiety have improved since coming to see Rachael. RP
I felt listened to rather than sympathised with. I didn’t feel judged in any way and felt that the questions raised questioned my own perceptions and enabled me to view myself differently. I felt I was able to talk freely as Rachael’s openness enabled this. Her genuineness shone through. SP
Rachael is extremely sensitive, attentive and empathetic, and is obviously passionate about her work helping people. She's very easy to talk to, and works hard to build a trusting relationship with her clients. She's fantastic support whatever the issue - she really cares and you couldn't want for a better person to talk to.
The biggest challenge I faced in 2016 which is when I started my sessions with Rachael, was that I had turned 40 the year prior and taken a three month sabbatical through the summer. So far, so privileged! However even after just my first two sessions with Rachael, I think I had hit the nail on the head. With her help to focus my thoughts I realised that I had lost focus on my life and with the milestone of turning 40 and achieving a goal that I had been working towards since I turned 30 having taken up most/ all of my thoughts combined with a successful career, I hadn't really focused enough on me.
I was skeptical at first but it felt good to discuss, identify and work through issues in a structured way with Rachael asking questions encouraging me to answer truthfully and look at my life and consider what and how to change it for the positive. Although at first, I felt exposed emotionally I did feel as though I was in a safe pair of hands and one whom I could trust and thought was credible. Over the course of the few weeks Rachael helped me identify the areas I needed to work on and continue to work on.
Rachael helped me to take on the elusive work, life balance and actually make positive changes including a decision to relocate from London to Manchester. With the reading materials and course videos, I was encouraged to develop my mind set to a more postive one and employ that on a day to day basis and realise the power of that.
What Rachael really excelled at was asking very pertinent, personal yet sensitive questions that helped me come to my own conclusions but once i had put those thoughts out there, she helped me organise them and also address any issues that came to light including low self esteem and and a sense of being lost. She introduced coping mechanisms, plus help with analysing why past relationships hadn't worked out.
What I learned is that it isn't just about relationships but how I view myself. Writing the journals and reading the recommended text at first felt alien and time consuming but actually it really helped build on those things i need to work on and identify when I was having a good or a bad day. Grasping the coping mechanisms and employing them in every day life, realising why needed closure and how to try and feel more positively about my last relationship ending was and is a game changer. I'm actually looking forward to dating again!
What's fallen in to place for me is that this is a process and not a quick fix. What Rachael did was provide a catalyst for positive change in my life that involved careful consideration, thought and work. It's not just about finding the one but putting the best version of myself out there and being open to every possibility. Hopefully the bi-product of this in the future will be a successful, fulfilling relationship!
Rachel always made me feel very comfortable & she's very easy to talk to without judgement. I was never very keen on going to speak to someone for some support but it was the best decision I made.
