What people say about my service

I have been having counselling through Gaddum for a few years now. I find it helps me immensely and enables me to deal with what my life throws at me.


I have struggled for many years with anxiety and depression. It felt safe to speak to Gaddum about what was troubling me and talk through my emotions. I had never done that before.

Client accessing therapy

My counsellor was very gifted. She didn’t give solutions, but she guided me to find my own. She was very empathetic and very professional.
