“I’ve never experienced a therapist like David, with him I had more of a feeling that I was in control of my own recovery. It felt far more positive and as if I was actually achieving something.”
“David was incredibly insightful the sessions were thought provoking and life changing.”
“Rebecca had the ability to quickly and accurately analysis my situation. As a result the guidance and support she offered enabled me to address my issues in a positive and practical way to help me start moving forward and believing in myself.”
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your support this year. If you remember I was questioning whether to apply for a promotion at work, well I did and have been accepted!!! Thank you for helping me to believe in myself again.”
“After being disappointed with a previous therapist, I was referred to Rebecca; I cannot praise her enough, her kindness, understanding and professionalism, as well as being extremely empathetic. She was able to get to the heart of my problem really quickly, made me realise what I needed to do to put myself in a better place. I am now much more secure and in a happy place. I would like to thank her for her help”
“My marriage ended shockingly and suddenly when my husband left me. A year later I realised I was unable to move on from the overwhelming grief and anxiety; at the loss of the life I had known and fear for the future.
I cannot overestimate the huge positive impact Rebecca has made to my life since our first meeting. I felt immediate trust, and for her to capture both quickly and accurately the nature of my marriage was pivotal. This enabled me to realise that I was not to blame, could not have acted differently and now needed to focus on finding myself again.
Life is still not easy; but I am grateful for Rebecca’s caring and compassionate support, as coupled with her belief in me, I do now feel that I have the ability to rebuild and enjoy my life whereas previously I would not have thought this possible.”
“My family and I have worked with Rebecca to help and support our teenager son who is an Asperger’s child. We attended different sorts of sessions, some individual for our son, some with parents and some with the whole family. Rebecca has been totally flexible depending on what our needs were and has supported all of us through what has been a difficult few years.
Rebecca’s’ knowledge of what a child on the autistic spectrum is thinking and needs is extremely good and her personable nature and kindness means she is able to create empathy and a personal connection with the child. The whole family have found our sessions with her have really made a difference and her strategies for dealing with day to day challenges made a profound difference to our communication challenges.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca to other families who are struggling to support an autistic child.”
