Through a dozen or so sessions with Barbara I have found her to be measured and insightful in the way she tunes in to the issues I bring to the table. I've always had a sense that Barbara is genuinely interested in me as a person in addition to giving me strategies to process these issues in a positive way and empower myself. She has a keen instinct for sensing straight away how I'm feeling before I've said a word. I've always felt in good hands. I've definitely benefited from Barbara's wealth of experience.
Barbara is very good at explaining your rights when you have a relative in psychiatric care, which is very important when you are a lay person who doesn’t understand the system. It helped me understand and make my mind up to do something about it. On a personal note, she is very supportive, friendly and approachable.
I was recommended to see Barbara back in 2013 after beginning a new job. Diagnosed at 18, I had been suffering with anxiety and depression for almost five years. I continued to see Barbara consistently for around two years, it was during this time I underwent cognitive behavioural therapy. Barbara was kind and supportive, she listened and gave guidance where necessary. Fast forward another 5 years, my anxiety and depression is now well managed because of Barbara. As a result, I have since been promoted twice, paving the way for a successful career. I wholeheartedly recommend Barbara and will continue to use her services myself.
