"Thanks to youth counselling service east kilbride"

About: Lanarkshire Community Services / Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services

(as the patient),

I would like to say that my work with Liz, my youth counsellor at Hunter health centre, East Kilbride, was amazing. She helped me over come my trust issues and a lot of problems I had.

Since going into Skye house I've not been able to see her, but I would like to see her once I come out because she genuinely cares about her job. She has been a very consistent person in my life, which I need.

After Skye House, I don't wish to go to Cahms and will not go to Cahms as it is the same therapy just a different building. I feel I have more trust for Liz she has helped me so much and I need to have someone that I can trust to pull me through this and finish my recovery, so I can get better. I honestly believe Liz is my best option.

I would like to say that Liz has helped me so much and she doesn't get enough praises from the NHS about how much work she did way above and beyond her job and I can't thank her enough she saved my life.
