Received 12th February 2020. Highly recommended. Hello everyone out there, suffering, embarrassed to receive counselling, forget about the stigma, go for it. Wendy is very professional but makes you feel like a friend from day one. Her expertise and knowledge helped me in just a few weeks of therapy. I am still a work I progress but my very large problems are small ones now and I can start to move on in life. Margaret. Cleckheaton
When I looked to find someone to talk to I hesitated, as I didn’t know what I was looking for in a counsellor. I knew I had lots of thoughts going round in my head and was not able to make sense of them. I came to Wendy hesitant of the process of unburdening myself. I need not have worried. I found her easy to talk to. Her gentle style put me at my ease. I didn’t feel silly. In the end I only saw her 3 times but these visits have made all the difference to me. Jane
"I had put off counselling for a number of years, not knowing what to expect and I guess nervous of what it may involve. I eventually realised I had to move on in my life, and no matter how upsetting or painful it may be, counselling was the only way I would achieve it. Within the first couple of sessions with Wendy, I found myself wishing I had seen a counsellor years ago. Wendy immediately put me at ease and to be able to see her in a comfortable environment just helped even more. Wendy helped me realise my answers, my strength and my way forward all lay within me. I found for the first time in years, I could start to believe in myself and face life with a whole new outlook.Caring, encouraging, completely non-judgemental and non-confrontational, Wendy's approach cannot be commended highly enough."
Wendy is fantastic, from the moment I walked into her office till I left my last session she was nothing but welcoming, reassuring and kind. I found the office to be really welcoming and felt comfortable sitting across from her. Wendy put my mind at ease from the moment I met her and although sometimes what I was telling her felt silly, she didn’t judge me or laugh it off. She helped me to express what I had kept inside for years just by reassuring me that it was ok to talk about it. Throughout my sessions with Wendy I felt more positive and could feel a change in myself, I was more excited about the future and was able to close doors on my past. I was at rock bottom when I met Wendy and within a few sessions I could see a huge difference in me, and so could my children.
