Client Testimonial:

"After many years of battling with grief due to the death of my parents, and having tried 2 other counsellors, my confidence in the counselling process had become somewhat diminished. Thankfully this was fully restored after meeting with Lynette for a course of sessions. I found Lynette's professional and approachable attitude very comfortable to be around which allowed me to open up on a level I had previously been unable to. Our work on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy was invaluable to my healing process and as a subsequence, with Lynette's help, I have been able to find that natural state of equilibrium I had been searching for. I cannot emphasize strongly enough how much these sessions changed my life in the way I think and deal with situations. I would, without doubt, highly recommend Lynette to anyone who is wanting to find balance and happiness in their life."  Female, PA

Client Testimonial:

"I can highly recommend Lynette as a counsellor. I was the type of person who never thought I could go to counselling but Lynette is very warm and caring and soon put me at ease. She is very easy to talk to and I soon found myself opening up. I got to a point in life where I just felt stuck and completely overwhelmed and didn’t know what to do. It really helped having someone to talk to and that had the skills to be able to help me work through things. She has helped immensely and now I feel I can move on in life with tools to help me to better cope with life’s stressors."  Sarah, P.A. female*

Client Testimonial:

“Lynette is a patient, kind and selfless listener. By helping me to reflect clearly on this painful time in my life, in particular the sudden death of my sister, she helped me to see the value in knowing the truth about what really happened, allowing me closure on a period of my life that haunted me for two decades. Working with Lynette has allowed me to move forward with my life in ways I would not have expected, and I continue to recommend her services highly." Manager, male

Client Testimonial:

"Lynette helped me to work through hurt and anger caused by the behaviour of a family member. That relationship, I'm thrilled to say, has been mended and is better than ever. Her calm and caring manner always put me at ease. She was easy to talk to, very supportive and I always felt more empowered when I left our sessions. I recommend Lynette very highly to anyone looking to see a counsellor." Female, 30's

Client Testimonial:

"I met with Lynette due to a 'perfect storm' of circumstances: my mother had been diagnosed with dementia, I had been suffering stress-related health issues, and I was feeling very overwhelmed. Lynette was absolutely wonderful. She has a very practical and proactive approach and gave me the tools and advice to cope with my situation and feel so much more confident about everything. She literally 'took a weight off my mind' and I would recommend her to anyone. Don't wait until nagging issues become insurmountable. Go and see Lynette and nip them in the bud."  August 2018
