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.
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.

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.
The sessions and exercises enabled us to find new ways of expressing our feelings for each other and avoid misunderstandings. This has strengthened our relationship and enabled us to show our feelings in a way we have never felt able to before.

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.
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.
“When I met Annette for my initial consultation, I immediately felt at ease in her professional clinic room; she made me feel very welcome and allowed me the space to speak freely. We have worked very well together and having only 5 sessions Annette enabled me to get to the root of my situation quickly. She provides input throughout the sessions so it feels like more of a conversation, which for me felt very easy. Annette is a lovely therapist, a great listener with great empathy. I would not hesitate to recommend Annette to those that need support. Thank you Annette – I really appreciate all your help.”

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.
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.
