What our clients say

“I feel these sessions have gained my confidence to become a better mother and daughter (to my parents) my relationships are better and I am happy to be independent and make my own choices.”

“WCTS offered me a safe place where I could explore my feelings, thoughts and experiences…and being accepted for who I am and whatever I bring.”

“My therapist has been amazing and I know that I would not be here today without her and the ongoing support she has given me. This is a brilliant service.”

“A very valuable service, absolute lifeline for me. Standard therapy would be absolutely impossible to afford.”
