I felt safe in experiencing my emotions with Alana. With her help I was able to achieve greater control of my trauma based emotions and feel at peace with my experiences. I learnt to be kind to myself, forgive myself and finally love myself. Alana was not focused on her agenda like other therapists, instead on what I needed. Many thanks. More...

Working with Alana was a challenge at first for me , however her easy manner and openness helped me to relax. I've laughed and cried, and sat in the moment, its been so good.

I didnt feel as though I had to make "it" happen. If I got stuck she helped with strategies and questions to assist my progress.

I am a work in progress haha :)
Proud of where I have come from and have great hope for the future.

I really appreciate you Alana, all the best as you continue your business of counselling others along lifes journey.

Thank you

Hills Holistic Counselling embodies the meaning of holistic.
Alana definitely treats the whole person. Most importantly I’ve felt heard, seen and understood throughout our sessions.
In a very short space of time, Alana has helped me get to the root of my issues and finally I’m seeing progress with my mental health.
She had given me practical tools and strategies to use when my anxiety flares up which had helped immensely in day to day circumstances. My confidence is growing and I have felt very supported, I would highly recommend!

Alana always listens, is supportive and suggests alternative solutions and sometimes resources. As a result of sessions my confidence has grown as my anxiety reduces and in social situations I now feel able to participate as part of a group.

Yes, either phone or telehealth (Zoom). I will provide you with a Zoom invite by email, prior to the session.

Not relevant as currently only providing telehealth/phone support. Once I return to in-person support I will follow all recommended precautions at the time.
