A Turner – Dudley Voluntary Service

“Just wanted to feedback to you that I’m getting lots of positive feedback about AOC, in particular in relation to where other services haven’t been as helpful e.g. I’ve heard of Talking Therapies missing appointments, not contacting patients, not engaging well with patients, where as I’ve heard that AOC pretty much do whatever they commit to and I’ve heard no complaints in terms of engagement or making people feel comfortable.

I’m referring into them quite a bit and they seem to be really working for people, so I just wanted to mention that in the hope that we can keep using them and referring into them on an ongoing basis.”

“I  just wanted to let you know what a fantastic impact you are having on RP.

After going through the mental health service, and talking therapies with no support being offered RP had given up, her PTSD from a violent sexual attack was not being treated and her life was a life of isolation and fear to go outside.
She tried to reach out for help many times, but nothing being offered was of help to her.
She was suffering extremely bad panic attacks, her anxiety was out of control and she had lost all faith in services.
Due to the severity of her panic attacks, an ambulance would often be called and a trip to A&E was usual.
After gaining RPs trust over around 5 months, I referred her to The AOC and Christian began working with RP.
Her first fear of working with a male was overcome when Christian used his skills to make RP feel comfortable.
Since then, RP has has regular sessions and the difference in her is immense, in fact I have never witnessed a change in someone to this extent.
Christian you have restored her faith in humanity and in services.
She has not called 999 once, she even went to B&Q and was able to be left for 5 mins while her partner went to a different isle!
This is a perfect example of how the AoC are perfect for HIU clients.
Christian your skills are commendable and you really have given light to someone who had been let down and given up.
Thank you.”

I have noticed a change within me; happier. I know I am a different person now compared to when I started therapy a few weeks ago. The best work was around ‘invitation to a view’. Thank you for your help. If I do go through a crisis situation again, I know I would be able to book an appointment as & when needed.


“AOC offer a wide range of Therapies tailored to individual needs that have proven to be very effective. They are fantastic to work with and are very responsive, they are welcoming and understand the needs of our young people. Feedback from mentees is extremely positive and all mentees accessing support from AOC found the whole experience really positive and even life changing.”

Jason and The AoC have helped me discover who I am as a person. Without them this journey would have been much harder and I am thankful for everything they have done to help me.


Working with The AoC has helped me to become a better person. It has helped me along a journey of self-discovery. The AoC gave me the power and ability to trust and believe in myself. I overcome fears and past demons which I didn’t think I would ever be able to do.

Thank you!
