Testimonial

“Amanda has definitely helped me through my difficult time when I was physically and emotionally unwell.  During her sessions, she provided me with clear and effective guidance after listening and analysing carefully.  By answering her questions, I actually found many answers regarding what I should do and how to deal with issues.  She recommended a range of very useful resources and books so that I could help myself after the sessions.  I have been reading these books for a few months, and I am sure these theories and their application have certainly improved my life in general.  Amanda also contacted me once in a while after her sessions to make sure my progress is ongoing.  She is a very caring and helpful therapist, as she has offered a life-transforming pathway.”  Jade
