T.K. March 2013
"We attended couples counselling for several months with Mandy, and in that time went from being about to break up, to living together as a family in peace. We have more understanding of each others needs in no small part down to some of the exercises carried out during sessions with Mandy. We found her remarkably insightful, and don't be fooled by the demure easy-going demeanour, Mandy can be tough when she needs to be to help you see what is required !! I honestly believe if it were not for Mandy we would now be parted, so thank you"
E.G & P.G; February 2011
"I have seen a few counsellors in the past 10 years, and nobody made me feel at ease like Mandy did. In fact, for the first time, I was able to divulge everything about my situation, without fear of shocking her or being judged by her. She has a great sense of humour too, which was appropriate in my situation, but she also really seemed to understand me and was very sympathetic. She recommended excellent book to me which was spot on, and gave me some exercises to do that helped me change certain (unwanted by me) behaviours. She sends me emails from time to time asking how I'm getting on (my location prevents me from seeing her regularly). I would recommend Mandy to anybody looking for counselling." Sarah. 2010/2011
"Before I saw Mandy I felt like a Rubix cube with the colours all mixed up. After seeing her I felt as if I had been put back together again with all the colours facing correctly. Things made much more sense to me" L.H. May 2011
" I view you as my rock to fall back on if I feel I am fading" K.D. May2011
