"I have never been a fan of the thought of sitting in front of a stranger to talk about things of a personal nature but Amy has been fantastic! She has been patient and understanding but not only that she has helped me to feel more confident about the way I think and feel about things, helping me to realise that my thoughts, feelings and things that I say are not just OK but are important. This has been a huge turning point for me, thank you Amy!''
"I've been doing sessions with Amy for two years and not only do I feel an improvement in my overall mental health but I also feel supported and have a greater understanding of myself. Her kind, encouraging and sensitive approach enables a comfortable and safe working environment to explore behaviours and feelings as well as the provision of day-to-day coping strategies. I would highly recommend her services and am grateful for all her help."
"I’ve been working with Amy for over a year now and have found our sessions together to be incredibly helpful. Amy is a supportive, empathetic and easy to talk to person, and together we’ve worked through difficulties in both my personal and professional life. Through her considered questions and observations, I’ve gained so much insight into my thought patterns and habits, helping me understand who I am and reframing past beliefs about myself. I feel like I’m gaining the clarity and compassion I need to make lasting changes in my life, thank you Amy!"
