Thanks to Gaynor's patience and guidance, I was able to challenge long-held perceptions that were no longer benefitting – or ringing true – to me. She really helped me through a difficult period in my life and the things I learned in our time together seem to have stuck permanently.
With her supportive and professional manner, Gaynor immediately made me feel at ease. Over time, she helped me to unpick and understand some very long-standing and rigid patterns of behaviour that were very unhelpful. The experience of psychodynamic counselling has had a positive impact on my self-esteem, and subsequently the quality of my daily life, as well as helping me through some more specific difficulties.
It is hard to articulate how much therapy with Gaynor has helped me. It was the first time I had approached therapy and I was unsure what to find. Gaynor provided a calm, safe and reassuring space in which I began to identify harmful patterns of behaviour in myself and others that had left me feeling stressed, trapped, or out-of-control. I felt a huge sense of relief and release being able to talk to her. I now have a greater understanding of what triggers those emotions and how to better manage those triggers, which in turn has left me feeling more in control of my own life.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help and wisdom that you gave me in our sessions together. I gained a good foundation from which I’ve been building on since. Life, of course, has its ups and downs but I am able to deal with core issues with more ease and awareness and objectivity. I just wanted to pass on my thanks and to let you know that your work continues on in your clients' lives in real time!
Thanks to Gaynor’s warm and caring attitude, she really helped me work through the problems in my life. She helped me look clearly at myself, gave me skills to see my life through different eyes and gave me the confidence to believe in myself. Her sessions made me feel safe and that I could talk to her about any issues I was having. Her sessions gave me a new lease of life and enabled me to unburden the hurt I was feeling. I will always be truly grateful for how she helped me.
Psychodynamic counselling helped me to make it through a difficult period in my life. I got my self-respect back and I see my future in a much brighter light. I am really grateful for having had Gaynor as my therapist.
I approached Gaynor during one of the most difficult periods of my life, my divorce. I had many questions for myself and was lost in thoughts that constantly brought me down. Thanks to Gaynor's guidance and very gentle approach, I was able to answer nearly all these questions, become more confident and to start to see the situation much more clearly. Thank you, Gaynor, for being there for me and helping me to see a very clear picture of a happy life ahead of me.
Gaynor helped me navigate a difficult patch in my life when I needed guidance. She is warm and caring and I felt understood and supported. I got a lot out of my sessions and would not hesitate to recommend her to others.
