Loved all my sessions with Annette and always came home uplifted. Feel stronger in myself for having therapy and would advise anybody in need of help to visit Annette.
“Highly recommend Annette, she didn’t just listen to me (which is what I have had with previous therapists) but she gave me everyday, practical things to put into practice.”

Meeting Annette has changed so many things for the better in my life. Annette made me feel so comfortable from the first time we met she was so understanding and so easy to talk to. I have learnt so much from my sessions. Through counselling I learnt just how much more was behind my feelings without even knowing it was there. The hypnotherapy was wonderful and really relaxed me. I would recommend Annette to anybody who was looking for help.
Annette really helped me work through my issues of anxiety and anger. She taught me how to control my anger and think in a more positive and stress free way. I had a few issues to resolve and with Annette’s help I could do that, she makes you feel very calm and comfortable and does not rush you through things.
I have definitely lost the emotional weight I had carried so long and people comment how much lighter I appear to be. I was 100% certain the time was right to tackle issues from my childhood which were holding me back and not allowing me to move forwards with my life and be the person I wanted to be. I am so glad I took this journey and more importantly stuck with it. I could not have done this alone and I can’t thank Annette enough. Annette has a wonderful approach and always seems to come up with the right suggestions. To anyone considering therapy I can thoroughly recommend Annette. She is extremely professional and always makes you feel at ease.
The therapy has been very successful because I now have a better understanding of my symptoms and what to do to alleviate them. The key to this success is that Annette
was able to establish a safe, supportive, non-threatening environment within which we were able to explore my life and the many influences on it. I am grateful for her most professional advice and support.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help, using the strategies we practiced in sessions was key in helping me to turn everything around.
Imagine a ball of wool, unravelled and knotted, left aside as ‘too much trouble’; that’s what my life felt like until I met Annette. She has helped me unravel the wool and now I am creating a beautiful garment – me! I went in to meet her wanting to stand on my own two feet and I have achieved that using the tools given to me by Annette.
“I can’t tell you how much I loved the sessions, how amazing they have been and what an effect it has had. All I can say is thank you.”

What a saving angel I found Annette to be when I needed it most. I dread to think what would have happened if I hadn’t found her. Just to have someone listen, not condemn, and say the feelings are normal, was such a relief. I have recommended her to many friends in similar situations.
“…Thank you for our time together. You have made a real, positive impact on my life and helped me change myself for the better. Honestly I don’t think I would have grown this much as a person without you, it feels like I’ve hit a real milestone!”

Annette was completely non-judgemental and treated me as a whole human being rather than a ‘problem drinker’. For years I had been plagued by shame and self-loathing because of excessive drinking. Annette allowed me to dictate the pace of therapy and I gradually reduced the amount I was drinking. I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. I am in control, and as a result, I am happier, healthier and wealthier! I am also more confident because I am not constantly trying to hide my drinking. I can thoroughly recommend Annette. She made what I feared would be either impossible or a long and difficult process, very easy and actually quite relaxing. There is nothing to fear in therapy when it is carried out by someone as professional as Annette.
A challenging, exhausting and frustrating process is made much more palatable and achievable (even enjoyable)
by the studied professionalism, natural empathy and wit of Annette. A very human experience.
I now feel much more positive and confident and it’s so good to know I’m not alone and could always contact a caring and friendly person for help.
“There are no words to express how grateful I am for all your help and kindness.”

The sessions helped me to think more clearly about the things on my mind and to deal with them in a calmer way. I generally felt more relaxed at the end of a session and enjoyed a good night’s sleep. I understand myself better and recognise that the ways in which I sometimes think aren’t always the best for my peace of mind.
Over the last 2 years I have been working with Annette to resolve historical life events and understand myself and situations more effectively.
I have learnt so much that I can apply to situations and daily life. It’s been an enlightening and life changing journey.
For years I have been sceptical of my need for therapy and I was so wrong. Annette has been insightful and inspiring and I can confidently say I’m a better person in so many ways I never thought possible.
The sessions were professionally conducted and very thought provoking. I’ve still not had a cigarette and now find I don’t even think about it.
I had buried childhood emotions so deep I could not resolve them. It was only through Annette’s help that I achieved this and have been able to move forward. Her understanding approach and professionalism made the experience calming and highly valued.
Throughout my life I have suffered from depression and at times severe panic attacks, anxiety and worry, etc. I felt so much at ease at my initial meeting, the session was fantastic. I felt great when I came out, really positive and Annette gave me quite a few exercises which really helped.
I would like to say a big thank you for all your help with my daughter who battled anxiety, low mood and poor self-esteem. We all supported her as best as we could but it was your contribution that really made the difference. She always came off the phone a lot calmer after speaking to you, you obviously have a skill there. It gave her the courage to let go of old habits and embrace the new.
