"After an age of procrastination, I finally accepted that I wasn’t coping and needed to find a way out of the misery and confusion I had been living in for far too long. I dreaded going to a therapist but pushed through this and took the plunge. I am so thankful that I did. In the first session, my story came flooding out and it was such a relief to tell it. I wanted to set goals and meet targets but ended up accepting the flow of the work and realised that there was no control, you just had to let changes happen at their own pace. Over the coming weeks, I learnt to face my feelings and not run from them. I understood where they came from and why I had stuck to habits that were so destructive. I am now more content, less fearful, a better person, good enough to be loved again. I have a new story now. I’m not telling myself an old one that was out of time. It is not always easy in therapy, but it was all worth it. I give the credit to Nini for my rescue. She pulled me out of the cold waters and gave me safety."

"I am so grateful to Nini for her care, kindness and thoughtful attention during several months of therapy sessions. I began meeting with Nini as I was struggling with anxiety and IBS, and finding it hard to put behind me some difficult experiences in my past. Nini’s insightful comments helped to guide me to a better understanding of myself, and how thoughts and behaviour that had helped me in the past were less useful in the present. I genuinely feel that I have now been able to set down some things that I carried with me for a long time, and learning to look at things differently has been a real relief, and has enabled me to begin making much-needed changes. I would absolutely recommend Nini to anyone seeking therapy."
G - December 2017
" I didn't want to think about what my problem was, but I knew something was wrong in my life. I had a constant feeling of grey guilt and shame. Together, Nini and I found a way to explore these feelings that I felt comfortable with. I needed her help because I was afraid to face up to the real reason I was guilty, unhappy and had no joy in my life, which I had been avoiding. It wasn't easy to accept the truth, but I did so with her support and it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. If you don't know why you are unhappy or are afraid to find out, I would encourage you to see Nini. It changed everything for me. And she is kind and clever and caring, unlike other professionals I have seen."
T.H - 2017
"I saw Nini weekly for almost a year and I cannot recommend her highly enough. I had so many issues when I first met her and was so overwhelmed that I didn't know where to begin. She explained what therapy had to offer but I was not sure that I would ever be able to come to terms with the feelings I was dealing with - mainly grief but there were other complications. Over time, we somehow found words for what I was feeling and talked about where they came from. Once I understood what had happened, and had the courage to face up to it, I felt a weight had lifted and I no longer felt overwhelmed. I was able to make decisions that have improved my life immensely and I wish I had sought her help earlier rather than wasted years in misery. I am so grateful for her care and faith in me."

"Nini took a walk with me into some of the darkest parts of my past. She lit these places up with her knowledge and understanding so that I now have a better relationship with myself and those people I love the most. This testimonial is meagre thanks."
P.H - March 2017
"I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Nini as a therapist for the treatment of any psychological problems. I felt cared for and learnt so much. She helped me to find a way through when I had lost all hopes for the future. I completely changed my outlook and saw again the beauty of the world and the kindness of others. Thank you for showing me these treasures."
J.K - 15th Feb 2017
"I saw Nini at first for help to move on from a bereavement. She was very kind and compassionate and I was able to move forward through my grief. At times, therapy was not easy and my loss brought up other issues that had been hidden and unresolved for years without my awareness. I felt after treatment that an enormous weight had been lifted and I could recast my life, going forward, with something I had lost - hope and a 'lightness of being'. Nini is very intelligent and observant, although she may appear as casual and friendly, there is a lot going on under this exterior. She shared her gathered observations and thoughts about me at just the right time - when we had a solid relationship. I was ready to hear what I had been running from. And she helped me all the way through coming to terms with those painful truths."
M. W-B. - 28th Oct 2016
"Nini was a great help when I was at a particularly low ebb. I had suffered depression previously, and it was reoccuring. I was also struggling with various pressures at home and work. Nini was an excellent listener, and provided a direction for me, that I could follow relatively easily. I am really very grateful to her. She is a very thoughtful and caring counsellor."
S.H. - 25th Oct 2016
"If you are looking for a really competent and caring therapist, look no further. Nini is so insightful, she completely changed my view of a deep seated problem. Although sometimes therapy can be hard - facing up to difficult truths - it has completely changed my outlook and for the first time in years, I have found peace. I am so grateful to her."
Anna - 29th Apr 2016
"I saw Nini to help me get through a really difficult time after a bereavement. She understood what I was going through instinctively and made me feel less alone. Through this acceptance, I was able to find light at the end of the tunnel. I don't know how I would have coped without her support and guidance. I highly recommend Nini to anyone who is seeking a skilled and sensitive therapist."
M.S - February 2016 - 2nd Feb 2016
"Nini helped me through a really difficult time. She is kind and insightful, and helped me get a much better perspective on the problems I was facing. Seeing Nini was never intimidating or a chore, and made a real difference. I would recommend her to others in heartbeat."
Mathew - 29th Nov 2015
"From the moment I first contacted her, I felt at complete ease. There is a human and a deep caring to her professionalism that really set her apart from any other therapist I encountered before. I realised that in order to overcome any difficulty, we must sincere ourselves nude of any pretenses, but for someone scared that can be the most challenging thing to do, with Nini it was never an issue. Imagine talking to the person you trust the most in the world, then imagine that person has the knowledge and experience to allow map and solve the puzzle. If you are reading this, you are already on the right track and Nini would help you along the way, for a therapist look no further."
Vanessa - 24th Nov 2015
"I had apprehensions about accessing personal therapy again, due to a negative experience. Although following an initial telephone consultation with Nini, I was left feeling at ease and comfortable to pursue counselling. Personal counselling can be challenging, especially when uncovering painful memories. Nini has a gentle, warm and understanding nature; which made it easier for me to express/acknowledge my vulnerability in a safe environment. Attending therapy with Nini has provided me with the opportunity to view life in a different perspective and remain optimistic about the future. If anyone is looking for a kind, genuine and professional therapist; I would recommend to contact Nini. "
Natalie - 20th Jul 2015
"I contacted Nini after a recommendation from a friend and, although I was initially apprehensive about therapy, there was an immediate connection through which it was clear that progress could be made. Over the last 3 years Nini has provided me with invaluable support through insightful and compassionate analysis; I'm deeply grateful to her for helping me to deal with some long standing issues and the pressures of day-to-day life, enabling me to gain a new perspective and live a happier life. I would recommend Nini to anyone."
Tom - 1st Feb 2015
"Having never seen a counsellor before I was, frankly, a little sceptical about seeing one. Nini is an extremely skilled, very insightful and completely professional counsellor who helped me through a really rough patch and totally changed my perception of counselling in general. She offered me different perspectives on certain things that I just wouldn't have been able to see on my own. I'd absolutely recommend Nini (and have done) to anyone. "
Dominic - 18th Jan 2015
"I have been seeing Nini for over two years now. As soon as you meet Nini you know she will give you her full attention, with an intellect that matches her compassion and warmth. Keenly perceptive she quickly identified the source of my pain and enabled me to deal with my relationship issues properly for the first time. On an ongoing basis she has helped me to re-evaluate my priorities in life and I am now much happier and a far better person than I used to be. Thank you!"
John - 5th Jan 2015
"I have been seeing Nini for the last few years. Having worked some other counselors in the past, I realised that she was the right person to help me to come to terms with the breakdown of my marriage. She is a very skilled, kind and sensitive counselor and has helped me to deal with many more issues too. I feel comfortable talking to her about things that are hard to admit to those close to me. Although it can feel like we're just having a chat, she makes astute and thoughtful observations to challenge unhelpful thoughts. I would especially recommend her to anyone who is anxious about seeing a councilor, since she is so natural and easy to talk to. She has helped me to feel in control of my life again and I am deeply grateful to her."
