"Having tried other therapists and not getting quite the right fit, it was a relief to meet Mary and feel safe and heard from my first session.
Mary is kind, empathetic and genuinely cares for the welfare of her clients. She has supported me through a very tough time in my life. She has equipped me with greater coping skills to live with less fear, and to thrive with more joy. I’m very grateful to Mary for her time and expertise."
"Mary has been patient and compassionate along every step of my therapy journey. Mary has expertly taught me practical techniques to manage my trauma. I now have a much better awareness of how my past experiences impact my thought processes day to day and that has given me the autonomy back over my life. Mary listens deeply and I have felt truly understood by her, which was an important part of the healing process for me. I’m grateful and so glad that I decided to begin therapy with Mary. Thank you, Mary, for giving me the safe environment to work through what I needed to." (Dec 2022)
"Mary has been entirely professional from our very first meeting. I have always found her to be extremely empathetic and understanding and easy to relate to. She is clearly not only well qualified but highly experienced. I couldn't recommend her highly enough." (Dec 2022)
"Mary is a very thoughtful and empathetic listener which was what I sought for in a therapist. She is knowledgeable without being overwhelming, and I especially appreciated her versatility in offering a blend of CBT and DBT to suit my needs. She provided many resources which enabled me to continue contemplating what we discussed in the sessions in my own time. I engaged in almost 20 sessions with Mary over which I made significant progress stabilising my mood, gaining a more secure sense of self, and processing childhood trauma. Of most importance to me was the trust we developed, which allowed me to feel comfortable and in control discussing difficult experiences. I would highly recommend Mary, particularly to anyone struggling with emotional regulation and complex trauma." (July 2022)
“As someone who was approaching counselling for the first time I felt very nervous and uncomfortable about the process. Mary immediately made me feel at ease in my first session and really helped me to begin gaining an understanding of myself.” (May 2022)
"Having someone accept me as I am has been a heartwarming and invaluable experience" (March 2022)
"The biggest change for me was being able to finally feel I could put the past and my abusers into a box, turn the key and file it away for good. They have no power over me now. I'm also eternally grateful to Mary for listening without judgement, for helping me to realise that none of it was my fault but above all for BELIEVING me. I miss her already and will always think of her with great affection and appreciation." (Nov 2021)
"Mary was so understanding calm and friendly she made me feel so comfortable. Before I didn’t know how to cope with my emotions at all, I hated myself and thought it was all my own fault but Mary has shown me it’s not my fault and helped me learn to cope with my emotions. I feel so much stronger." (Sept 2021)
