I have just completed a 6 month course of Dialectical Behavioural Therapy with Home Counties Therapy. I have a history of eating disorder and substance addiction and this course has been invaluable in providing me with skills that I did not posses before beginning the course. In particular I have found the interpersonal skills training and the distress tolerance tools to be helpful. The trainers are compassionate and have fantastic knowledge of both the course material & the supporting psychology. They have a great way of helping every member of the group to understand the course material and apply it to our own lives. No one gets left behind. I can highly recommend this course and feel that there is something to be gained for everyone.

I can’t thank Lorna enough for the support she gave me to give me the foundations to give up my drug usage. From day one the support was there and from previous experience with drug counselling I went in with not much hope, however I found Lorna really easy to talk to and several months later found myself clean and 22months later I still am clean. I know that if I had a wobble or found myself in a position where I had relapsed, Lorna wouldn’t judge and would be there to guide me to get me on the right track again. I have continued to see Lorna on a more infrequent basis to help me with my day to day struggles and feel so much better after a session. She really knows how to make you open up without realising you are doing it until after. Thank you for all you continued support and look forward to seeing you soon

Lorna has been great when it comes to diagnosing my son with ASD. I turnt to Lorna when no one in the NHS would take me seriously and offer me help and support with getting my son diagnosed. Lorna has been with us every step of the way and came for home visits, schools visits and sat in a meeting with the head and class teacher. She continues to support my son and us as a family to help minimize melt downs and be someone there when we need her for advice or support. She takes time out to call us to see how we are getting on if she hasn’t heard from us for a while which is greatly appreciated. My son has found talking to Lorna really easy and has gained trust with her quickly which is very rare for my son. I cant thank Lorna enough for being the person she is.

I can’t express the amount of gratitude I have for Lorna, Ashleigh and James. Through attending one on one and group sessions I was able to find the direction I needed to move forward with my life.

They really go the extra mile and provide a fantastic service with a genuine desire to help you.

I’m posting this review under a pseudonym to maintain my confidentiality, just as HCTC have. As a professional person with a drug and alcohol problem, HCTC provided a safe place to come to terms with my difficulties and find a way forward. Initial contact was with Lorna who saw me within 24 hours and agreed a suitable schedule for therapy. After some time we felt that a group approach might be beneficial to me in addition to 1-2-1 sessions, so I joined the DBT group. Dialectic Behaviour Therapy is a fantastic tool for living a less chaotic life and I benefited immeasurably. The groups are delivered in a friendly, flexible format with a great sense of humour! Lorna and her team have always been hugely flexible when working around my busy job and family commitments. Their policy of allowing 24/7 contact with clients is genuine and on occasion life saving.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Home Counties for anybody seeking some help. They did, and still do, respect my autonomy in the process and have not once put me under pressure to increase or continue seeing them. 5 stars doesn’t quite sum up the help they’ve been over the last year or so. Thanks Lorna, Ashleigh and James!
