Counselling and Therapy Reviews
LEave a Review
I came to see Michelle on a recommendation and can honestly say she has helped me enormously. In a few short weeks Michelle has helped me to deal with issues that have crippled me for decades and has helped me to be stronger, calmer and, above all, more assertive. Michelle is a lovely lady, very welcoming, empathic and puts one completely at ease. I would highly recommend her as a therapist.
"I contacted Michelle as I was suffering from burnout, anxiety and depression due to PTSD. I'd heard many amazing things about EMDR therapy, and was thrilled to see that Michelle was only a 20 minute drive away from me. I instantly felt calm and at ease with Michelle, and I have to say, I've been blown away by the results of just one EMDR session. It's been just over a week since the therapy, and I can feel it working more and more every day. There are things that used to haunt me and now I'm happy to say that I view them in a very different light. Being able to reframe past trauma and feel like I'm in control of it is incredibly empowering; I would highly recommend Michelle.
" Amazing "
I welcome the opportunity to leave this review having just completed a counselling course with Michelle, I found her to be very informative on various methods of therapy and very easy to bond with which I found essential in order to progress within the therapy, with her assistance I found my confidence starting to restore, obviously starting a journey of this magnitude can be daunting to a newcomer, but be assured if you are considering therapy for your situation help is at hand and I would thoroughly recommend you contact Michelle.
I've been working with Michelle for a number of weeks now, she is amazing! I highly recommend. Michelle shows empathy and very caring. She will help in anyway possible. Michelle has been there for me when I felt I had no one else. Cannot thank Michelle enough for the help and support I've achieve so far. Thank you Michelle!
"Changed my life"
I cannot recommend Michelle enough, I was nervous about speaking to anyone but Michelle made me feel at ease and relaxed straight away. Her advise was invaluable and it has made such a difference to my life in a very short space of time. She helped me gain my confidence back so I could tackle my problems head on. She is amazing in what she knows and the advice that she gives, I wouldn't hesitate in contacting her again if I needed to. Thank you Michelle you have changed my life. xx
"Thank you so much"
The help I received from Michelle was truly life changing and really put things into perspective for me which allowed me to cope with several personal issues and repressed trauma. Without the help I received from Michelle I would not have been able to identify my issues, overcome them and develop as a person, and I most certainly would've fallen victim to them without her help. Not only did Michelle help me identify my repressed trauma and the impacts and effects it had on me by supressing it, but she also provided a platform for me to express and discuss my experiences openly and freely without judgement or shame, which was an important factor on my journey to recovery. In addition to this her advice and support was without a doubt superb and I could not praise it enough. Thank you Michelle for everything you have helped me with, I am certainly better off as a result, Thank you so much
"Thank you for turning my life around"
I would like to thank Michelle for her amazing work with myself in the past 5 months. As a "man" I had the ego stopping me for putting my hand up and asking for help. She made me feel so comfortable from the second I walked in. Its amazing that the help Michelle gives you you're be able to pass on to other people who are in need of this too! Thank you for turning my life around and putting me into a happier and stress free life. Cannot recommend Michelle enough.
"Really Helped Me"
Hi my name is Noah and I am 10 years old I have been going to Michelle for 5 weeks now, I struggled with going to school because I just do not like leaving home when I met Michelle for the first time I was a bit nervous but that is okay because it is normal to feel that way, it didn't take long for me to settle in. Michelle left it up to me to decide what I do want to say and what I do not want to say this really helped me feel more like I had a choice. After after 5 weeks I feel less anxious. I also want to say talking helps so much and Michelle helped me to realise this ! I would definitely recommend going to see Michelle it has helped me so much ,I wish you all the best in your journeys you will get through these hard times.
"Helped me to find my confidence"
I have attended video counselling with Michelle for several weeks now. I had recently left a narcissistic abusive relationship and was struggling to understand how to move forward and if I would ever be able to trust again. I had done some work on my own but needed help to move onto the next stage. Michelle guided me through this with ease and a very grounded style. She helped me to find my confidence and gave me the tools to start again and to trust. I have recently started a new relationship and feel that I have all the necessary skills to ensure that it is a healthy and happy one. I cannot thank Michelle enough.
"Understanding and Patient"
I looked into finding face to face therapy sessions after being told by my GP that I could be on a waiting list for over two years on the NHS. I then found Michelle and booked in straight away. It was the best decision I've ever made. I have struggled with my mental health for a while now but finally feel as if I am capable enough to cope with my issues and that I can be happy again. Michelle is kind, understanding and patient. I highly recommend anyone struggling with their mental health goes to see her. You won't regret it !
"Expertise, empathy, compassion"
I cannot speak highly enough of Michelle's counselling expertise, empathy, compassion and understanding within her field. She shows an absolute thoroughness and leaves no stone unturned from initial consultation and throughout the therapy sessions. I only wish I would have sought her help sooner than I actually did, probably the best decision of my life was to book my first counselling session!!! To boot she has a fabulous fun personality which immediately puts you at ease from the off.
"I can't thank you enough"
When I was referred to Michelle I didn't know what to expect & was surprised at how quickly I felt at ease & began opening up about what was causing anxiety & stress. Michelle is fantastic at helping me to create clear goals and helping me focus on those as well as identify when I have strayed away from them. As a result after 12 sessions I have a kit of tools to use when I feel myself falling bad in to negative cycles or putting others ahead of my own needs. Michelle & I have laughed, cried, shared thoughts & feelings I have never shared & she has been an immense support during the toughest period in my life. I can't thank you enough Michelle & I would highly recommend Michelle.
"A wonderful counsellor"
Michelle is a wonderful counsellor, she is a very good listener who eagerly hears everything you say and is ready to provide you with expertise knowledge to help you through whatever problems you are having. I have finished my 6 week program and am still seeing Michelle to carry on helping me through my issues. Always looking forward to my sessions and the hour always seems to fly by like 15 mins or less!!! So happy I made the decision to book my first session and would recommend Michelle to anyone who is thinking about counselling.
"Michelle has been the breathe of fresh air"
I can't thank Michelle enough for her help and only wish I had spoken to her sooner. She immediately put me at ease to open up about issues I was struggling with and she helped me dig deeper and get to the route of why I was feeling the way I was. She made connections that I would never have put together and has given me the tools to go forward in such a calm, controlled way that for the first time in a long time, I'm positive about my future! She really helped me focus on what was important and has given me such confidence that has empowered me to build on the positives of family life and excel in my career. I'm not the only one who is grateful, everyone close to me has seen a change in me and is thankful! Michelle has been the breathe of fresh air and clarity that I have needed for a long time. Thank you so much Michelle, you have been a game changer x
I found Michelle to be thoroughly professional in her approach. Michelle always arrived on time as arranged and the sessions eventually gave me the tools to move forward. Michelle's style of therapy is as described on the website - "beneficial" and I would recommend the use of those professional services for anyone with the requirement.
"I'll never forget the help you gave me"
I first got in contact with Michelle after a relationship break down after being diagnosed with depression anxiety and PTSD Michelle was fantastic understanding and a good listener and I actually spoke of things that I'd never spoke of before and all thanks to her I'm a better person for it I would highly recommend anyone who has PTSD to go and see Michelle thanks Michelle I owe you a great deal and I'll never forget the help you gave me
I Called Michelle after the grief of loosing my son followed by the breakdown of my marriage. Michelle listens patiently to me rambling on then offers just a few words of feedback..."I want you to think about the thing you just said "....sounds simple ! But every time, the item she picks up on sets me thinks for days afterwards and normally sends me down a positive path. Michelle has been invaluable in me starting to find myself and my peace once more. Thank you!
After having some recent troubles in my personal life I got in contact with Michelle and after speaking to her about the things I've gone through she has helped me understand that I'm a good person and now I feel good about myself for the first time in a long time and I would highly recommend therapy by Michelle to anyone who needs it thanks again Michelle
I have been receiving bereavement counselling from Michelle for some time now after my 11 year old sister passed away shortly followed by my nan. Michelle is very empathic and easy to talk to. I have found the sessions extremely helping in dealing with my grief and would highly recommend her services. Although remaining professional Michelle is very supportive and understanding and genuinely cares.
"Always there to give advice"
Back in November I was diagnosed with severe anxiety and I was having panic attacks and struggling to deal with daily tasks. After speaking to the doctor and being put on medication to help, I chose to look into private counselling due to the long waiting list through the NHS. I have been having sessions with Michelle since December and have seen a big change in 7 weeks.I used to have a real issue with how I perceived myself and how others judged me in that 7 weeks I have started to be more positive about myself and not think what people are saying about me.I also used to let certain situations for example what people say to me or doubt myself get to me and start to overthink which led to anxiety problems. I am now more assertive in how I approach stressful situations and have the attitude to let things just go and not let them worry me.Michelle has been amazing and allowed me to set my own goals in my own time, by talking to a stranger has helped me speak about things I haven't told anyone before. I have now not been thinking about taking my medication and the progress in confidence i have achieved and how relaxed i am with day to day life. I do have my little wobbles from time to time and Michelle is always there to give advice.I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is suffering and needs to talk.
"Immediately put me at ease"
Although I was initially apprehensive about my first session with Michelle, my reservations were soon allayed due to her ability to immediately put me at ease. Throughout my 6 sessions she showed true professionalism in her systematic and sensitive approach. Thankfully as a direct result of her counselling skills I now find that I am far better equipped to deal and therefore cope with any problems that may arise in the future.
"Cried, laughed and cringed"
I got in touch with Michelle to explore the reactions I had to a variety of difficult situations and work on some coping methods. I initially felt embarrassed seeking help but I'm grateful I did because it has been life changing. Michelle probed me to open doors from my past that I had very much boxed away over the years but talking things through enabled me to fully address the good the bad and the ugly but most importantly move forward with a positive stronger outlook . I cried, laughed and cringed at myself throughout the sessions, it is an incredibly empowering process. Michelle listens intently and will pick up on things you have never noticed about yourself. I could ramble on but to summarise, my sessions with Michelle have made me very self aware, empathetic towards others, increased my self worth and have given me the ability to rationalise emotionally challenging situations. Thank you Michelle!
'I couldn't believe how life changing this experience was'
When a family member put me in contact with Michelle, I was apprehensive. I had been struggling with a few issues and I felt that I could benefit from some support. Worrying on a daily basis to the point of feeling physically ill became the norm. I couldn't believe how life changing this experience was. Within 6 weeks I was able to take back control of my life! Michelle has given me an emotional toolbox that I use on a daily basis. I am now a much happier and more confident person. My only regret is that I didn't start this process sooner! Thank you Michelle!
Having developed sleep issues some time ago and also noticing that I wasn't quite right, it was suggested by a friend that maybe a therapist could find the root of my problems. I found Michelle on the internet and decided I had nothing to lose by trying. From the very first phone call Michelle put me at ease, she is very easy to talk to and has the ability to pick up on problem areas that need to be addressed. I am now 7 weeks in to my therapy and with Michelle's advice and guidance I am not only sleeping better but I also have a much more positive outlook on the future. I would highly recommend Michelle as a therapist as the improvement she has made in my life is invaluable.
Investment in myself
Seeing Michelle has been an investment in myself. From day one she really has helped me to change my life for the better. Michelle has helped me with my problem solving, to see things more clearly and has also offered practical solutions to my issues. I would highly recommend Michelle. She is so approachable, has a great sense of humour and puts you at ease. Thank you so much Michelle Xxx
