Family work (2023)

"We want to express our appreciation and gratitude for everything you have done for us as a family. Your calm empathetic stance and professional expertise has helped us though an emotionally challenging time that left us confused, distressed and in need of additional support. It all feels more manageable now"

Couple work (2021)

"Totally trusted you as a therapist and ........felt very well guided and understood and it helped … a lot when you said 'this was nicely said' or 'the beginning of the sentence was kind but stop there, you're going the wrong way now'"

Family work - Professional coming out to parents (2019)

There have been some significant steps, so I want to thank you SO MUCH! I really cannot believe it. It feels like there has been a breakthrough - particularly with my dad, but also with my mum. They are asking about my partner, showing an interest, including him in things, I really can't believe it. I feel so happy and I'm so grateful to you.

Thank you for creating a safe and warm space in which we could talk and listen to each other and be assured of a safe landing.  We appreciated the efforts you took to make sure that we could all fully participate and that we could all remain fully present even in challenging moments.  We really appreciated how you facilitated difficult conversations and were open.  You held the space for us and it has make the difference we needed.
