“It feels like a safe space – you can terminate the conversation at any moment. I felt I wasn’t intruding on anyone’s space or time.”

 

 

Although before the first session I was inevitably very nervous, I found almost immediately that talking via Skype was very easy and intuitive. I found that I was able to fit these sessions into my busy life.

 

 

“I strongly believe that had I not had access to the service, that I would have given up early on in the process and that I would not have progressed to where I am today.”

 

It feels like a safe space...

 

“I found the service excellent. It was good to talk to someone who really understood alcohol and drinkers. I have had counselling in the past but I found these sessions much more useful and of practical help.”

 

 

“Really happy with the service. It has helped so much and [my DrinkCoach] has been just brilliant. The only downside to using Skype is that I can’t shake his hand in thanks!”

 

It has helped so much...

 

 

“The main appeal was that it was easy; I didn’t have to go anywhere. For me, it was the only option, when other options weren’t available.”
