Success Stories


Getting your life back on track

The Cottage has supported hundreds of clients when they have needed it most, supporting them through the most difficult of times, and helping them to get their lives back on track.

These testimonials reflect just a few of the glowing comments former residents of The Cottage have said about the therapeutic treatment they have received at the hands of our dedicated professionals.

I strongly feel that my counsellor listened to, and understood, my needs and this was reflected in my care. The staff and the operation as a whole is very professional and at the same time friendly in every way. I strongly feel that the treatment I have received at Life Works has been beneficial to me.

“I believe that it has saved my life. Interactions with staff and the variety of therapies are great. I have just started my journey in recovery and will remember the impact Life Works has had for the rest of my life”


“Life Works has saved my life. It has opened my eyes and made me realise how much I have to give. It has given me the tools and determination to recognise who I really am. My life will never be the same again. I am a better, nicer and happier person than ever I could have imagined. I have already recommended Life Works to a friend and there will be many more”


Treatment was like having a massive weight lifted off my shoulders, to have somebody listen and hear what you are going through was amazing. I cried a lot but when you are one to one with a therapist you dont feel as though you are burdening anybody. I loved it and still do, it feels like coming back to a birth place, its not like a hospital its more like a home with a lovely garden.

I arrived on a Monday, completely broken and that for me was the beginning of the transformation. The thing that was fantastic was for me was that is was explained, early on, that addiction is a disease. The idea if you had said to me eight years ago that you can have a great relationship with your children and have them back in your life, you are going to care and support your wife, I do not know what I would have said....and all that started here.
