Client Testimonials

“I came to therapy hoping to learn about who I am and what makes me tick.

I’d suffered the loss of both my parents within a short time of each other and found the grief overwhelming at times. I also had a difficult few years with my husband and wanted to understand why I was repeating unhealthy behaviours.

I had low self-esteem and felt insecure. Jane was patient, thoughtful and I felt listened to. Working with Jane gave me the tools to deal with life, and helped me see that I am who I am and that no one is perfect, and I’m ok with that now, as this was something I was struggling with. We went over some early childhood memories and Jane suggested EMDR which I was open to and found it remarkable.

I visualised and spoke about the difficulties within the memory and after the EMDR session the memory had changed into something more positive, it felt so empowering, I was totally relaxed and happy to see this memory in a different way. I had a few more sessions of EMDR dealing with guilt I felt around a bereavement. At the start of the session I was inconsolable, sobbing tears and by the end could breathe, smile and visualise a different picture of that grief.

I’ve just finished my sessions and I can honestly say it’s been difficult talking about myself, my feelings, my life, but it’s been the best thing I have ever done.

I am 100% confident and am happy with who I am. I know now and feel that I am enough.

Thank you Jane”

“Really excellent. The experiences with the horses were great. These were personal but also gave insights to team dynamics. I think there was a lot of value in the day, individually and as a team member. The facilitation was sensitive and skilled”

“Today has been a good day to reflect on my personal values and the way I express them. I have been able to recognise things I need to improve on when working with patients and team members”.

“To be honest I was not very keen about this away day, but to my surprise I have enjoyed every moment of it. I just want to say thank you. I have learnt a lot and look forward to putting to practice what I have learnt”

“This was a very good and unexpectedly fun experience. I came here very apprehensive but I didn’t want to leave! I have felt a connection with the horses and my team mates. I would do this again and recommend it to others”

“Today was lovely to spend time with the horses and being in tune with our own emotions and behaviours. I feel that it strengthened communication and challenged perspective. I reflected on my own behaviours/instinct and it’s made me less reactive”

“I was someone who always thought they didn’t need Psychotherapy, that was for other people! Then one day I found myself in a situation that however much I tried to fathom it out I was going around in circles and could feel myself spiralling down into a dark place, this, in turn, had pushed my self-esteem to an all-time low. Someone suggested I have some counselling and as I was in such a low place mentally, I thought I’d try it.

I then found Jane and I cannot believe how much my life has turned round, with her kindness, help and empathy she encouraged me to talk through all my problems and feelings, she made me feel safe and listened to and I left after each session feeling uplifted. Slowly everything that I was feeling began to fall into place, and once I understood the reasons why I was feeling that way, I was able to see everything clearer and gradually began to see things differently.

As a result of my Psychotherapy, I am now in a much better place mentally and physically, I am sleeping better, eating better and feel I am present in the world and not on the outside looking in. My self-esteem has grown as a result and I cannot thank Jane enough for giving me my life back.”
