"I was having a really bad time and felt so much better after speaking to Joanne, she framed things in a way I hadnt thought of before and helped me feel a lot better."
   
"This was my first session with Joanne, so it is early days yet. However on first impressions I felt the first session went well for me. Joanne sounded very pleasant and welcoming. I say sounded as my session was over the phone. My first session entailed getting an outline of the issues. I felt at this early stage Joanne seemed to have a good understanding of what I was saying. She was non judgemental, with a warm and professional approach. I hope to continue exploring my issues in another session with Joanne."
   
"Joanne is a genuinely lovely person. Easy to talk to. She provides a safe space for you to speak and she gives great advice. My partner and I have had a session with her together. I’ve had a session with her on my own. Both were amazing. Thank you Joanne."
   
"A huge help just in one session felt totally supported and a sense of direction gained just by taking. Warm and helpful "
   
"Very helpful, down to earth and friendly. We found Joanne very helpful in resolving our issues and we are much happier now, thank you Joanne : )"
   
"For online sessions, little professional touches like keeping the camera still, and not disappearing off-screen while the client is talking, make a lot of difference to inspiring confidence during a session. Not massively helpful for us really, sadly. "
   
"I found Joanne very easy to talk to and she made me feel comfortable and supported "
   
"Very helpful "
   
"Very compassionate and easy to talk tp"
   
"I felt that Joanne was a good therapist but was perhaps just not the right fit for me. She had lots of suggestions and tried to explain certain processes related to stress, but I felt like we were pushing for a solution. That might just be my own interpretation. Still, I got to talk about certain things which is always a good thing, and I feel like she did what she thought was best."
   
"Lovely and warm. "
   
"Very understanding and non-judgmental. I really appreciated her advise and plan to continue with the sessions."
   
"A pleasant introduction with some useful pointers at the end "
   
"Excellent communication and understanding. She listens to my needs and helped me come up with a small routine to break apart what is causing my issues. Also, she helped me understand myself and walk my through my mental state and being. "
   
"I would definitely recommend this service for people who feels as if they cannot trust people ."
