I can’t thank Glenda enough.
She has helped me work through so much and I’ve come out of it: confident, believing in myself & pretty much anxiety free. I have lived with anxiety for as long as I can remember and cannot express the freeing feeling I now feel, one that I thought I’d never feel.

Thank you Glenda for your guidance and your listening ear.

Glenda gives such kindness and warmth, and really just help guide you into understanding yourself more.

I 100% recommend. It’s changed my life for the better.

I've had a couple of sessions with Glenda so far and she seems to be very good at slowly peeling away the layers of the issues we're discussing.

In case there was a misunderstanding. I’ll replace the word dearth of knowledge with a vast amount of life experience

It was good to work with a lady who has a dearth of life experience, also has a totally unbiased opinion. Thank you Glenda.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Glenda. In the 9 months she was really able to help me develop and overcome certain obstacles in my life. A great person who understands and is very empathetic. She is definitely a person you’d want to go to for any problems in your life you want to address. I could not be more happy with the progress I made in the 9 months. Thank you Glenda. More...

I worked with Glenda for several months and my transformation is unbelievable. I cannot thank Glenda enough for the support and tools she has taught me to be the new and confident person I am today. At the start of my journey, I thought I wouldn’t be able to change my mindset and get out of the situation I was in. Glenda supported me throughout and gave me different methods and reasoning behind my emotions. Now I feel like I can continue on this path and develop my confidence even further. She has taught me to be happy within myself and in my own company. My anxiety has significantly reduced and my relationships and understanding of others has improved. But what is even better is that Glenda has taught me how to recognise my triggers for anxiety and manage them. I am so thankful and grateful for the work we put in and for Glenda’s help. I really felt like I was listened to and my emotions were validated throughout, I didn’t once feel silly or irrational. I would happily recommend Glenda to anyone who needs support. Thank you so much for your help. More...

Worked with Glenda for a number months, she is super professional and insightful - I have learnt so much from her and now understand myself so much better. My past was not great, but now I know I have a happy future ahead; I can't thank her enough.
If you are scared about taking the plunge - just do it, Glenda will support you all the way.

I was always so skeptical about counselling and having to delve into situations and experiences that were uncomfortable to discuss but Glenda's understanding and openness made it feel easy. I will be forever thankful to Glenda and without her guidance and patience I don't think I would be as comfortable and settled in life as I am right now. Would highly recommend Glenda. More...

I have recently just finished my sessions with Glenda. I was going through a difficult time and she has helped me massively put things into perspective and given me some really useful tools to help deal with my low moods.

I spent just over 7 months working with Glenda, she really helped me overcome some past difficulties by helping me to think differently and train my brain to live in the present.

I overcame fear I had struggled with for a long time by talking and also with hypnosis she gave me the tools to change the way I think which has made me a better person.

I would really recommend Glenda to work with as I built a good rapport with her as she is easy to talk to and I was able to fully open up to her about my past as I could trust her as she is a good listener who shows empathy and understanding in her work.

Honestly, I can't thank or recommend Glenda enough! In matter of weeks she has helped me reverse 7 years of struggling with my own head, and has given me the tools and techniques that I know I will be using in the future.

For the first time in a long time I feel positive and optimistic about the future! Thank you Glenda!

Glenda was an excellent counsellor. She made sense of what I was going through, allowing me to see things more clearly and understand what I was going through was pretty normal. This gives you the opportunity to address the route of your insecurities or any other problems you may be facing. Highly recommend. More...

Q&As

Seeing the transformation of people, as they work through the process and having been allowed to travel on that journey with them.

Being in control of my time and destiny - Having worked in the Finance Industry for many years and seeing how people are "managed" at work, the impacts of poor life/work balance, I felt it was time to start making a difference for others.

I have a wealth of life experience, including working in the Financial industry and Public Sector for a number of years. I truly understand the stress and anxiety that work and more importantly poor work/life balance can bring.

Fully trained and also continuing my own personal development, I am well equipped with a number of models to assist my clients with a range of difficulties. I am passionate about what I do and love seeing people step out confidently onto a new path and journey.

I am on panels for Victim Support, SAIF (for bereavement counselling) and other Employer Assistance Programmes all of which provide an array of different client scenarios and keeps my breadth of experience current.

Services are provided face to face (Covid issues permitting) as well as by secure video conference.

When able to use my clinic, I have extended the space between me and the client to be in excess of the 2 meter rule. Hand sanitiser is available to clients who haven't brought their own. Water is no longer offered to remove the risk of contamination on glasses etc. Waiting room large enough to maintain social distancing.
