Client Testimonials

This has been a journey of discovery: a new kind of therapy. Dealing with traumatic events in a clear time line has helped tremendously, and also it has been helpful to attribute blame where it actually belongs. Also the therapy has helped in how I view myself in relation to past events.

Talking through my issues with someone else was helpful. I felt like I was in a bad place when I started and by week 2 was enjoying my sessions and felt happy to come. I found the exercises very helpful and have used what we discussed in day-to-day life.

Denise really understood every aspect of my problems, helped me understand the underlying issues and always discussed with me the possible solutions (never a "this is what you have to do"). She continuously motivated me by making me aware of my progress. She helped me set realistic goals and develop skills with which I can confidently tackle any setback. I never felt rushed through the sessions, or pressured to take more sessions. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Denise created a feeling of trust which allowed me to be open. The timing and pace was good between pushing forward and backing off. Denise identified my learning style with reading, videos and homework. I made progress every week. She was listening, summarising and identifying the core, underlying issues for me and giving me tools and techniques to rectify them. Denise played back what I had said and made helpful observations. She helped me to identify coping strategies.

I felt like I could let out all my thoughts and knew there was going to be a solution by the end of our session. There was nothing that I did not like about the therapy and it was in a good location.

What I found most helpful was that Denise was interactive and asking questions, drawing out what I was saying. Denise was caring and empathic. What was also helpful was that she changed direction when some strategies seemed less helpful, checking this with me. There was a good amount of tasks to work on between sessions.

What I found most helpful was having someone nice to talk to, who doesn't judge you and is easy going. Denise doesn't tell you what to do or tell you off if you don't complete certain tasks. This is good because it keeps you motivated.

Being able to work through my issues with a professional, qualified therapist was very helpful. It gave weight and validation to the tasks I was asked to do, and Denise offered a non-judgemental environment to work through my anxiety. A solution-focused approach really worked for me.

It was helpful to have someone to unload to, but it also helped me to uncover some of the reasons for my behaviour and stress levels. The CBT helped me to really understand my driving emotions and be accountable for my reactions to things.
