What do our clients say?

  • I have gone from being in a very low, suicidal place with no want to do anything to resuming work, having a healthier outlook on life and planning for my future.

  • I wanted to share something with you as today I did some chakra based yoga.I cried for everything that was done to me and taken from me. Still sobbing I just let all of the feelings flow through me, then came an immense warmth of love and nurturing. And a release.

    This was such a profound experience that I wanted to share my elation, but I know that if I were to try explain it to my friends or mum, they wouldn’t understand and it would take from what it means to me.
    The first and only person I wanted to tell was you. To celebrate this huge moment of change and growth with, as you have seen me through my journey, understand the pain (and growth) and have enabled me to grow to the point I know how to and are putting time and nurture and love into myself.
    Thank you, from every part of my body and soul, thank you.

    This is testament to the importance of what you do there at stepping stones and to you as a person, a healing being, bringing healing and peace to others.
    I truly appreciate what you have done for me and do for others.

    If you wanted to use this text on the website or to promote your services in anyway that may reach out to or inspire others who may be too afraid to start their journey, please do.

  • I feel free to now live my life. I am no longer carrying a secret which weighed me down. I can now be honest with my wife, without carrying a secret shame and guilt.
