"I just wanted to say thank you again for everything. When I came to you a big part of me was lost, sad about the past and doubtful about the future. You helped me find that part of myself that I wanted to get back and now I am stronger than ever and living every single day with the biggest smile on my face.
I learnt a lot about myself during my time with you and I think about our sessions often. I always felt safe and reassured after talking with you, especially during my lowest points. "
"Thank you for all you've done for me, your professionalism, warmth and caring attitude helped me so much. Yes I shed floods of tears but I had to and you allowed me to unlock my emotions and let it all out."
"the seeds of resilience, self-belief and self-acceptance were planted and watered in the hours we spent together. I just want to thank you so much for every word you gave me in those sessions and for the journey of healing and self-discovery you enabled me to take. You have to know that the work you do and have done is so utterly life changing for the people like me that you see."
"My wife and I came to see you some 6 or 7 years ago for counselling regarding our marriage... unfortunately the marriage counselling did not work, or perhaps it did, we just realised that our marriage was broken and unfixable. However, I continued to see you for myself as I had issues from childhood and my marriage that you helped me to accept, address and more importantly move on from.
I would like to thank you for helping me and guiding me through a period of my life when I wasn't in the best of places and I can't thank you enough for that. I am now in a really good place mentally and always think about certain things you brought to my attention. Since I last saw you, I have been through a divorce, had some time out for myself and then started dating. I have met a wonderful lady with amazing qualities, bought a house and got remarried."
"Patsy helped me to realise that I was okay and what had gone on in my past need not affect my future. She made me feel at ease and created a safe environment to explore my issues."
"Patsy was recommended to me through a friend as I'd been struggling to get through an extremely tough period in my life. Making that first appointment was a little scary, yet it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made! Patsy's caring and understanding manner immediately put me at ease and I felt comfortable talking to her about everything. Thank you Patsy for helping me to get my life back on track!"
"After reading several self help books I felt that I had all the information I could take so why was I so down, what was missing? I felt stuck. I contacted Patsy and am delighted that I did. At last I have moved forward in my life with Patsy’s help. She is professional, warm and very patient''
"Patsy has helped me to be able to experience life in a more boundaried and richer way. Without her I may still be struggling with issues that I was burdened with for years. I remain very grateful to her for the work we did together."
"I had reached a point in my life where I seriously needed to talk to somebody because I was finding life unbearable, but knew that I would never do anything that would endanger my life. Patsy helped me to turn my life around and made me see that I did have a future. Her warmth and empathy enabled me to see that I did have options in life and gave me back the belief in myself."
"During my sessions with Patsy I felt at ease and knew that I would not be judged. Using her counselling skills Patsy enabled me to explore and understand my feelings and thoughts which has helped me a great deal."
"I would say that supervision is excellent with useful insights and encouragement when the work is difficult, including relevant recommendations with regard to reading material or worksheets that may benefit the client and increase my knowledge. A collaborative, productive and creative partnership."
