"Ann helped me untangle my thoughts and find the path ahead. I would not have got back to work without her support and guidance".
"I just wanted to thank you for all the help, support and encouragement you gave me, while I was having counselling. I was at a low ebb and had no self worth, you allowed me to express my feelings with out judgement. You said some things that I would never have thought off, this has allowed me to more forward in my life. I have seen many counsellors over the years, but never felt they understood me as a person, as you did. Thank you for giving me the strength to be me".
"I can recommend this counselling work without hesitation. I had some weekly sessions with Ann during a time when I had a short-term and acute medical concern that left me fragile, teary and vulnerable. In counselling, we were rapidly able to unpack the immediate concerns with rapid relief. I was also delighted to have new perspectives on past anxiety and relationship issues. It was also important to me that this counselling could incorporate the mindfulness exercises I was also seeking. In a short period of time, I am now feeling healthier, more secure and positive than I have in a very long time".
"Thank you for being a port of calm and a source of encouragement during a difficult time. It has meant a great deal to me".
"Our relationship was failing and, at first, I could see no other option than endit. However, I did wonder whether relationship counselling might help us and, together, we decided that it was worth a try.
What really helped us was being able to speak to each other away from our usual environment. This made us think more closely about what we had to say and how we reacted to one and other. Also, Ann was able to guide us into exploring new ways of communicating, thinking and reacting.
I would strongly recommend the couples counselling, along with one single session for each participant. This enabled us to share more with Ann and she gained a more holistic view of us as individuals and of our relationship".
