Counselling is not an easy journey – but it is always worthwhile

I understand that sometimes there is not always an answer to every problem and sometimes it is simply about taking the journey with another person that actually makes the difference. Counselling is sometimes simply about taking the space and time to talk about your problems in confidence and sharing troubles and thoughts with an impartial listener.

 Having never done any kind of therapy or mental health work on myself I was as hesitant and reluctant as they come. I am a 30 year old male who doesn’t talk, or open up to anyone. Having had a free consultation with Amy it was evident very early on that I could talk to her about anything, and I did.  I had various issues I needed to address and with her set of skills, personality and professionalism she was able to help me further beyond where I could have ever imagined.
I was upset when I knew my time had ended with Amy and would 100% go back to her if and when the time comes but I also wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone else that is struggling or seeking help. 


 Amy was amazing at helping me learn how to deal with and understand why I had intrusive thoughts. Working through it with Amy has not only given me the tools I need to cope with intrusive thoughts but also enabled me to accept myself and improve my self-confidence. I no longer need regular therapy sessions but she always makes time if I ever need the occasional reminder! 



 I loved my sessions with Amy and looked forward to them every week. She is everything you look for in a counsellor and more. It can be nerve-wracking to approach a counsellor, yet all my apprehensions melted away as soon as she picked up the phone. I felt that Amy was so genuine and that she really listened to me and understood my point of view. I felt like it was so easy to talk to her and to be honest about my experiences. Amy is compassionate, friendly and comforting. She is professional, highly skilled and very experienced. I am so grateful for all that she has helped me with. I would highly recommend Amy and believe that she is capable of supporting people more than she knows. Amy's services are truly invaluable.  



 I've used Amy for nearly two years now and can comfortably say she has changed my life for the better. She is everything I want in a counsellor; down to earth, honest, empathetic, fun and she listens thoroughly in every session we have. She has years of experience in supporting people and families through various issues which makes me feel more comfortable sharing my problems with her to get her perspective and suggestions, which are always incredibly helpful. Amy can be flexible with her availability to suit your needs and keeps in touch between sessions which shows how kind and thoughtful she is and how she genuinely cares. I've learned a lot about myself through my time with Amy and I don't know where I'd be without her support. She is worth every minute and penny spent with her.

Thank you Amy for everything! 


 Amy is a skilled and thoughtful counsellor. She takes time to listen, build a trusting relationship, and is both empathetic and challenging as needed. She is easy to talk to, and helped me understand myself, and equip me with skills to move forward, with a deeper awareness and new perspectives. 


 Like most people, I was feeling extremely anxious about my first counselling session. The thought of having to open up and talk about the issues that were bothering me were challenging and filled me with dread and anxiety. However, the moment Amy opened the door with a warm, welcoming smile she made me feel completely comfortable and at ease.
I would highly recommend Amy to all and can't thank her enough for helping me! 


 Amy is honestly amazing, she has the best ability to make you feel comfortable with being yourself which can be hard anyway for some people! So easy to talk to! Would highly highly recommend she helped me tons and tons! 


 I cannot recommend Amy and her services enough. It often takes a while to click with a counsellor but with Amy it was instant. I felt listened to, respected and cared about from day one. Professional and reliable too. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
