Heather has helped me through a very difficult period when I was extremely troubled with panic attacks and anxiety. She has expertly guided me through a series of sessions using CBT and EMDR recognising exactly what I needed and getting to the root of the issues. Not only has she addressed the current hotspots but also went through a thorough process getting me to better understand the history and physiology as well as giving me the tools to cope and ultimately recover. Over the course of the sessions, I had several light bulb moments which led to life-changing improvements. Heather is a very experienced and extremely competent therapist. I am very grateful for Heather’s professional support and would trust and recommend her to anyone including my closest family and friends. She has been fantastic!
This year I found myself in the position of needing some help as I was going through an emotionally difficult time in my life. I have private healthcare and selected Heather from a list given to me as I liked the bio about her and the experience that she had. From the start I felt very comfortable with Heather, she made me feel at ease and was very patient and took the time to get to know me and understand the issues I had. After a few sessions she explained the therapy that she thought would be good for me and asked if I would be agreeable to this. The therapy I had was EMDR and I found it very helpful. Throughout all of the sessions Heather always checked that I was comfortable and understood what was happening.
I have definitely benefited from my therapy experience, and have been able to move forward in a very positive way. It has helped because of a number of things – I felt safe with Heather, getting to understand why I am the way I am, the EMDR therapy and also some simple small actions that I use on a regular basis. I have been able to share my knowledge and experience with family, friends and colleagues. If you find yourself in need of help I would definitely recommend Heather. I actually think that everybody would benefit from some counselling in their lives!
As a man it can sometimes be difficult to address when you’re having mental health challenges; however, after a number of years suffering in silence I decided to seek help and found Heather – and I’m so glad I did. Initially we went through the myriad of thought patterns I’d created and Heather was able to provide me with a safe place to discuss these and a structured toolkit to use to help me change the way I dealt with the issues, which has significantly improved my mental health. I’m so glad I finally got the support I needed; it’s made a big difference in my life
I was 15 when I started therapy with Heather. I was very anxious and nervous at the beginning, however Heather helped me to overcome these anxieties and traumas by making me feel safe when talking to her. She helped me understand what had caused my anxiety and was very honest and open with me, though still being kind. I am currently 16, due to finish therapy, and it has been a really positive experience and I am now ready to move forwards with my life and plans for the future. I will always be grateful to Heather for helping me.
