I have gathered together here some testimonials from previous clients. I have not named the clients so as to maintain confidentiality.
"Thank you for your support, for listening and helping me accept myself - thank you, thank you!"
"Harry Jenkins really helped me during a difficult time in my life. After moving to the area, I was having a hard time adjusting to the change. He is kind, understanding and gave me really good advice on how to calm down my anxieties. He also taught me to listen to my feelings more rather than deny them. He allowed me to take my own pace in the sessions. I would definitely recommend him to a friend."
"Speaking with Harry/Caritas has allowed me to look at the issues affecting my life from different aspects and allowed me to gain a better understanding of myself and my problems. In doing so, I have been better equipped to deal with these problems in a positive manner and therefore improve the quality of my life. Thank you."
"Following an injury that left me with an uncertain future, I found myself in a very anxious and confused state. With Harry's support, influence and listening, he helped me understand my feelings and reintroduced me to myself. His support played a vital role in recovering my confidence and allaying my fears, which has led to me regain my career and in fact push me further.
My sessions with Harry have educated me to the benefits of this kind of therapy, which can, with no doubt, help people in many ways.
Thank you Harry."
"In search of understanding, I looked up 'Caritas' in the thesaurus, because I knew the name had been chosen with great care. Amongst the different definitions in each category I found words which I would use to describe what I found and what I took with me when I left. In Caritas I found and was shown many things: generosity, kindness, compassion, altruism, grace, tenderheartedness, aid, help, support, reinforcement, relief and rescue. Of all this extensive and valuable list the most surprising to me was reinforcement. I had thought myself despairing and hopeless but I discovered that I, in fact, had great strength. There is one final idea I discovered: a 'gift' - I am not certain how to describe that gift, but I know that it has upturned and unearthed my life.
A description of this 'gift' that you have given me is that when I feel afraid, angry, or alone I see the emotion, whatever it be, much more objectively. I am able to look at the emotions as pointers towards healing and eventually strengthening something within me, like Rumi's 'Guest House', which we had discussed: 'Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honourably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.'
Because I understand myself better I am more in control and I feel that I can not only choose my path but make a new one where necessary..."
"If this is not a place where tears are understood,
Where do I go to cry?
If this is not a place where my spirits can take wing,
Where do I go to fly?
If this is not a place where questions can be asked,
Where do I go to seek?
If this is not a place where my feelings can be heard,
Where do I go to speak?
If this is not a place where you’ll accept me as I am,
Where can I go to be?
If this is not a place where I can try to learn and grow,
Where can I be just me?"
