Counselling is different for everyone - we are all unique, and I respond to who you are and what you bring - but it can be helpful to hear about people's experience of counselling with me, not just what I write about it.  So, here are some words from some of my clients.  (All are anonymous because of the importance of client confidentiality, and all are quoted with permission).

"This was my first time ever doing counselling and Toni put me entirely at ease allowing me to be very open and honest when talking through some difficult topics. She mentioned in our final session that counselling is likened to having someone walk alongside you, and this is exactly what Toni did - she was there alongside me, helping me through. At the end of our sessions, I was able to list the ways in which I had grown and the things I had learnt throughout our time working together. Everyone should try counselling and I can’t recommend Toni enough." (Client, August 2023)

“When I started, I wasn’t too sure about this looking at my emotions thing – but it’s great. I am really enjoying this!”  (Client, May 2023)

"I have learnt so much about myself in these sessions and I have found them really helpful and have really enjoyed doing it... Thank you so much for all of your help in our sessions." (Client, June 2023)

"Toni is the first personal counsellor I have worked with and I wasn’t sure how it would go. I needn’t have worried. She’s enormously warm and welcoming, gentle in her approach but excellent at helping you work out what is going on that’s causing you difficulties. She listens well summarises well and then nudges you to find your own solutions. She sticks with you to see how things progress. I thought I was at a cross roads in my life (bereavements, ill health loss of a sense of who I was) but in fact I think I had gone down a dead end street from which I had to find ways of moving out and forward. It made a huge difference to have Toni’s help." (Client, January 2024)

"I have tried counselling a few times but sessions with Toni were, without a doubt, the best experience I have had. Her manner and approach are gentle and considerate and I immediately felt relaxed with her. I felt like I could speak about anything but I also really liked how she was able to pick up on subtle things that I said and really find the way into where we needed to go. If you are unsure where to start, she will instinctively help you find your direction. The dynamic felt like we were a team working together. I really do believe that you start to heal the moment you feel heard and this is how it felt with Toni. I came away feeling lighter, clearer and like some healing had happened on a deep level. It really was a great experience and I would highly recommend it". (Client, January 2023)
