This right here is why I do what I do... the connection I have with my clients is priceless.
I received help from Denise for various difficulties I was experiencing and she was able to make me think of different ways of looking at difficulties and ways to cope. I am still using those coping mechanisms and it has changed my life.
Denise is amazing at what she does. She gives you a safe place to speak about everything without judgement. She helps you to make sense of the things that you struggle to make sense of and explains things in a way you understand. I had changed some aspects of my life but needed a little nudge to move past certain problems I was facing. Denise gave me the nudge and helped me figure things out. In the end, I felt that Denise was more of a friend than a professional. Speaking about things really does help and allows you to progress in becoming who you were meant to be.
Thank you Denise, Myself and my family are eternally grateful. I encourage everyone to invest in themselves and upgrade their lives!
I started my journey with Denise in July 2021 and can honestly say she has saved my life and given me the tools and confidence to achieve a version of me I never thought possible. The last 18 months have been a rollercoaster after getting hit by a truck earlier in 2021 and my life changing drastically again I was spiralling with bare help from the NHS and after scaring 3 psychologists with them I decided to find my own help.
Denise is always so warm and welcoming, has never made me feel apprehensive to share my issues, and has helped me get a much better understanding of myself. Gifted me the stability and strength I've needed throughout the adversity.
She's real and upfront, with a toolkit bigger than Mary Poppins bag. She taught me how to handle my triggers, create boundaries and enforce them.
My life is infinitely better thanks you her and I will be forever grateful for her part in my life.
4 years ago my life became unmanageable and there was no other option than to ask for help. That’s when I met Denise.
She has helped me with my drug&alcohol addiction, borderline and eating disorder. Heaving to deal with these mental illnesses is very hard and it can be quite overwhelming. Denise always made me feel safe and comfortable. She has great knowledge, patience, humour and understanding. She knows how to make it easy for you to understand as well. I have so much more knowledge about why I am the way I am.
I recognise negative patterns and I have learned to change them in a healthy way with healthy tools. I am forever grateful for the support she has given me. 6 years clean and sober and a much happier person that actually enjoys life. Can’t recommend her highly enough!
When I first started with Denise I didn't know what way was up and I was in a terrible place mentally. I have seen Denise for the last 18 months and I can honestly say I have never been in a better position. Healing is hard but Denise gives you the strength, tools and belief in yourself that you can do it, no matter how long the journey is that you need to be on. No judgement, lots of tears and a lot of laughter. I can't thank Denise enough for how much she has taught me.
Denise is amazing at what she does. I started seeing Denise as I was really struggling and in no time at all she was helping me to recognise my triggers and find coping mechanisms. Before I saw Denise I honestly felt I was going to be stuck in that mindset forever. But thanks to her support and kindness, I’m in the best place I’ve been in for years! I cannot recommend her enough - she made me feel so at ease and that allowed me to be open with her which helped me get better. If you’re thinking of going to Denise, don’t hesitate, you’ll be glad you did it!
Thank you, Denise, for helping me, I’m so grateful and I would never have made it here if it wasn’t for you!
I met with Denise in May this year after suffering from anxiety and negative thoughts. I stopped exercising, (I enjoy running and cycling), didn't want to leave the house or meet anyone and given the choice would've spent all day under the duvet. I was slightly apprehensive at attending the first couple of meetings, however Denise put me at ease and we built up a strong relationship. Denise set up a programme to do short walks, small tasks around the house, meeting friends which I followed faithfully. After 4 or 5 sessions I was doing short runs and meeting friends and family for a coffee or lunch. I am so glad that I attended the sessions which were organised by my workplace and Denise and I worked through the 7 steps of CBT which I still refer to if I feel I am getting over whelmed particularly with work issues. I highly recommend Denise, she is a great listener and doesn't judge you. I feel more confident after 12 sessions and now enjoy getting out, whether it's for exercise or meeting friends.
I was struggling with my mental health due to a number of factors and I wasn’t in a good place. I was working from home and really struggling, I lost confidence in myself and didn’t believe that anyone valued me in anyway.
One morning I had a thought that I wasn’t prepared for, luckily I chose to fight this thought. Through a close friend I was put in touch with Denise and she has been my rock.I had made the first step in admitting I needed help and from that first telephone conversation with Denise my journey began.
Denise lifted me out of a very negative place, teaching me how to deal with my issues and look at things in a more positive manner.l owe Denise so much as her professionalism ,commitment and her caring nature has lifted me out of a horrible place.
I am now in a far better mental health position, I look at life in a positive way and enjoying life once again, yes I do have dips but Denise has given me the tools to deal with these.
Please don’t be afraid to seek help, take that first step and get help, I did and luckily for me I reached out for Denise. My family will always be grateful to a Denise and personally I will also , and I am also lucky that all of my family supported me through this horrible journey , they stood by my side through good days bad days . Last but not least my close friends were great
A big thank you Denise
Denise is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend her services and can testify that my session with here greatly helped me overcome my anxieties and worries.
Cant recommend Denise highly enough! Denise has not only asked the tough questions to allow me to identify and change my thoughts (still work in progress) but gave me the tools to change what I want to change and the metaphorical kick up the backside to get myself back on track! Denise is so easy to talk to, she listens (really listens) and shows comparison not pity. Truly the best (and scariest) step I took on the road to change was arranging that first session with Denise.
Denise is an incredible counsellor and I can say with total sincerity that because of our sessions, my life and my mental health has changed for the better.
Denise really helped me deal with my ongoing anxiety issues. I have been suffering for over 10 years with health anxiety, generalised anxiety and stress. With the recent pressures of the pandemic, her help came at a crucial time for me. The counselling and strategies Denise gave me reduced my physical issues related to my anxiety and stress and the strategies i now use keep it under control. I would highly recommend Denise for people needing help with anxiety/ stress, depression etc..
Following years of bad anxiety and panic attacks, my friend recommended Denise. I was a bit a scared but as soon as I met Denise, she instantly put me at ease. She was so easy to talk to and is such a caring and considerate person. Denise challenged me to think differently about things, explained why I felt this way, showed me a huge amount of really great tools to help me challenge my unhelpful thoughts and to stop me from getting so distressed from my anxiety. I was really upset and lost with my anxiety to the point where life was really difficult and there didn’t seem to be any way to improve it. With Denise’s help I’m now thriving at work as I’m much more confident and able to cope with stress, I’m more settled and content in friendships and I’m enjoying getting out and about in my spare time with my new found energy. I’m truly enjoying my life again and that wouldn’t have been possible without Denise’s amazing support and guidance. I will be forever grateful to Denise for supporting me through this and helping me to believe that anything is possible with a bit of focus and determination!
I suffered with really bad anxiety and was worried about speaking to someone about it. I needn't have because Denise is so friendly, she put me at ease and we chatted like we were old friends. We had a few sessions and I have to say she has made a huge difference to how I think and feel. I had to make contact again lately as with everything that is going on I could feel myself struggling. Once again she made me feel calmer again. I still have to have a word with myself sometimes and recap the tools she has given me. She truly cares about you and made me realise I was not alone and feeling like I did was extremely common. I would highly recommend Denise, I will always be grateful to her. Thank you
“I'm very grateful I met Denise and the work I done with her has been life changing for me. I first reached out to Denise for help with some addictive behaviours which were holding me back in my life personally and professionally as a professional athlete. My sessions with Denise helped me understand myself more as a person and understand the importance of my thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Denise didn't just help me through going to see her for sessions all the time, but also by teaching me some life changing concepts and giving me a toolkit that I could use on my own to change my mental and emotional state at any time and overcome any of the life challenges or stressful situations that came my way in everyday life. In the beginning I felt a lot more reliant on Denise to help me by going for my sessions each week, but eventually I started to be able to help myself a lot more too through the toolkit Denise provided me with. As a professional athlete with a good team of coaches and sports professionals working alongside me to help me achieve my goals and dreams, Denise has felt like a big part of that team this year and I feel so grateful for her help in helping me get control of my life and fulfilling the potential that I have. If there is anybody else out there who is struggling with their own mental and emotional state I would highly recommend speaking with Denise :)”
Denise is the most incredible person i've met. I struggled to trust someone enough to tell my story to get the help required but as soon as I walked in and met Denise I knew I was in a safe space.
This turned out to be a place of not just safety, but growth. A growth in myself, a growth in confidence and growing my knowledge on how to deal with the issues I had raised.
Anytime I speak about my story, I speak about Denise - She saved my life, she will always be part of my life due to the incredible person she is. Makes you feel at ease but can also press teh right buttons and give the right triggers to get you to a better place.
Even after slowing down sessions, she still sends things for my journal, links to help me with my anxieties and everything else to help.
What a woman!
“After coming out a very violent/hostile relationship I was completely lost, confused and felt utterly worthless, felt like I no longer knew who I was and most definitely did not know my worth. That’s when I made contact with Denise, who helped me turn my life around in just 4 sessions and actually feel my old self again and find a purpose which at one time I thought was impossible! The technics Denise has taught me help me with everyday life and will stay with me forever!”
Thanks so much for all your help this year. Don't know where i would be without it.Youve made such a difference to my life as well as my kids and rest of my family around me.
I cannot put in words how thankful and appreciative I truly am.
I met Denise through a mutual friend who was a former work colleague of hers. Because of Covid-19 all our conversations took place online. From the very first video call I was happy to open up to her in a way I didn’t think possible. Every session was conducted in a highly professional manner. I was at quite a low ebb at the time but gradually gained more confidence with each session, especially when Denise gave me the “weapons “ to begin to conquer my crippling anxiety and low self esteem.As I have already said everything was conducted very professionally, but we had lots of laughs along the way, which helped me with my anxiety. I am now “flying solo” but I can always phone Denise any time in case I need her support in the future, which is very reassuring. I would recommend Denise to anyone without a moment’s hesitation.
The most important thing in life is the connection you make with others.
Denise helped me navigate my way through a particularly difficult period where I felt completely overwhelmed. In just a few sessions she expertly pinpointed the key areas that I needed to address and deal with to allow me to manage my life more healthily and the various relationships in my work and personal life.
Stress, rejection, over-committing and feeling under pressure in many areas had begun to affect my emotional well-being and my mental health. I was feeling an underlying sense of panic every day and didn’t quite know where to turn. I needed some support and advice to manage my life better when a friend recommended trying therapy/coaching with Denise.
Denise helped me see a simple way to change my thinking and how I approach various areas I was struggling to manage. Denise is warm, open minded and really easy to talk to. I instinctively felt at ease with her natural, intuitive manner from first time we talked.
Denise helped put a structure in place and I’m now following some simple strategies she suggested which have helped overcome the intense feelings of anxiety and panic I felt.
I now have a healthy sense of control back in my life and am feeling so much better about my coping mechanisms.
Denise has literally changed my way of thinking and it’s given me more confidence to communicate my needs to those around me.
I feel calm and have a stronger sense of purpose.
I would totally recommend Denise to anyone struggling emotionally and needing some support and expert advice. At a difficult time in my life it was such a relief to find this lovely lady!
Denise was referred to me by a friend who noticed I was really struggling with anxiety, at a time when I didn’t know how to ask for help. In the next couple of weeks, Denise was able to quickly help me identify the root cause of how I was feeling, and explain the logical reasons.Growing up in a dysfunctional household with an alcoholic parent, I had never had the opportunity to understand my emotions or deal with them. This grew inside and began to seriously affect my adult life; leading to problems with anxiety, poor self-esteem and disordered eating. Denise taught me how to care for my inner child and take notice of my own emotions- something I had neglected to completely do.
I am now less reliant on others to pick me up when I am down, and I understand why I feel the way I do and how to change it. Speaking to Denise has allowed me to rewrite the narrative of my life and set me back on the path to happiness. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to speak to somebody so compassionate and empathetic, I would not where I am today without her.
I contacted Denise and after our first call I knew she was someone that could help me, from our first appointment I was immediately made to feel at ease, I could open up, say exactly how I felt and not have to worry about what I said or how I acted. Her compassion, warmth and understanding was clear from our first meeting, but I knew she also had the capacity to give me some tough love with some aspects of my life, which is what I needed to.
The journey hasn’t been plain sailing, I hit rock bottom probably a month into our weekly meetings due to more stress being piled on me by a financial matter. This time however I had Denise there for me, helping me understand what was important, how I could tackle my dark thoughts and also speaking to my wife to help her understand where I was at.
It has now been almost 6 months and I feel like a very different person. I have learnt to tackle my thoughts and problems head on. I have stopped blaming myself for everything and learnt to enjoy my family like I have never really done for the past 2 years.
I still speak to Denise on a regular basis as she helps me to organise and handle situations that once I couldn’t but also she is helping me on my next life goal, one that should make just as much difference as being here for my family.
I was fortunate to have Denise as my therapist where she supported me for Alcohol Addiction and Trauma. Upon meeting Denise she immediately made me feel safe and secure which was very important for me and it was clear that the advice was coming from a place of extensive experience.
Denise is a Person Centric Therapist which means that she allows the patient to drive the subject matter of that particular session, dependant on what they are feeling or thinking at that time, a dynamic which I found to be highly effective. She put me in a place whereby I could feel completely comfortable in discussing previous and current events and emotional attachments in a safe environment. Denise has an innate ability in balancing genuine compassion and understanding for her patients whilst tactfully challenging any thought patterns and behaviours which have proved to be dysfunctional.
I would go so far as to say that no one has ever invested so much time or genuine care and compassion for me before. I always felt understood and I could trust her implicitly. Denise enabled me to not only deal with my past traumas and the emotional attachment I had to them but she also enabled me to feel and process my emotions which was a major part of my recovery.
I cannot underestimate how big a part she played in helping me become the person I was always meant to be and I can recommend her unequivocally.
I met Denise at quite a critical moment in my life. I was desperate, sad, fearful, depressed and absolutely lost in life and in my addiction to alcohol and drugs.
I was convinced that I wasn’t able to live a different life. Denise helped me through the process step by step. She woke me up out of this dark never-ending nightmare. She had an enormous impact on my life. She helped me through recovery, she made me a better person, to become more open, honest, willing to change, she helped me break my negative patterns, negative behaviour and negative thinking. She encouraged me to overcome my fears such as sharing personal pain, shame and guilt. She helped me to access parts of myself that I pushed away and wanted to forget, in order to understand where my fears and insecurities are coming from and how to change them.
She believed in me when I doubted every feeling and action I needed to make. It’s a difficult process but Denise is a wonderful combination of knowledge, depth, professionalism wrapped up in a package of warmth, humanity, humour and grace. There are people who you come across at a certain point in your life. It’s unbelievably special and rare to find someone like Denise who can help change the direction of your life. I am forever changed and forever grateful for having met Denise and for the growth she helped me to achieve. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
I contacted Denise after taking time off work due to work and personal stress which had severely incapacitated me. At that time I was unable to think clearly and Denise helped me to organise my thoughts with the questions that she brought to our meetings. She helped me to re-evaluate what was important to me and whether I was willing to make the sacrifices needed to achieve what I wished to do with my life.
She made me immediately feel comfortable, and made me realize the importance of honesty with not only myself, but with others as well. Really looking at all aspects of my life, and my goals, and figuring out together, how to get me closer to these goals. I highly recommend her if you are looking for some guidance, reassurance, and overall kick to start to better your life.
Denise is involved as a therapist in the effort by my daughter to stop her addiction and in her recovery from the addiction. She is very important to my daughter. She looks to Denise for guidance and help. Denise is accompanying and teaching her on this road to recovery and to a better, healthy and more stable and rewarding life.
Thanks to Denise and of course her own dedication and their hard work together her future is a lot brighter. Denise is clear in her communication and is strict in what she asks and expects but she does this with enormous empathy and love. We as a family trust her and are very very grateful for her help and for the work she and my daughter are doing.
I got in contact with Denise when my life was stuck. I was struggling at home, at work and with life. I could not see a light at the end of the tunnel. Denise simplified things and made everything seen so easy. She made me go back to basics with my life, my thoughts, and reminded me what was important to me in my life.
She has very quickly changed my life and given me a purpose again. She made me realise that all the answers are out there you just cannot see them sometimes and need help in them been pointed out.
I am an alcoholic addict and I was in the early weeks of recovery when I contacted Denise for therapy, my obsession for alcohol had gone but I knew I needed to work on myself in order to maintain sobriety and live a happy life that was free from addiction. Denise helped me become the person I was always meant to be and helped me believe in myself again. I can honestly say that of all the professionals, doctors, psychiatrists etc. I have worked with throughout a 25 year period of addiction and depression, Denise made the biggest difference to my life.
I am now a happy, successful person who lives life to the full and I could not have achieved this way of life without the help and support from her. I am eternally grateful for everything she did for me and would recommend her therapy or help to anyone who had similar problems to me.
