WHAT OUR SERVICE USERS SAY: 
Father and Son in Bed

We've found FCT friendly, kind, supportive & with a listening ear. Non-judgemental. They were happy to offer services to our family in need. 

Parent and Child

Life changing - she now has the tools to identify and cope with her anxiety 95% of the time - the other 5% I am able to identify and assist

Our daughter who finds talking about her feelings/emotions very difficult, felt very relaxed and comfortable with the therapist she had been referred to, a perfect match.
