I went to therapy with the intention of solving a problem. A problem that I thought was the bane of my existence, and a problem that I wasn't sure I'd be able to solve. I had never been to therapy and therefore did not know what to expect.
My experience with Dianne was a very welcome one. From the outset she was extremely welcoming and calm which soothed my jittery worries almost as soon as I walked through the front door.
Over the months that I worked with her, she enabled me to not only find a solution to the problem that I had initially gone to see her about, but she also instilled enough confidence in me that I was able to change fundamental (negative) things in my life which had been hanging over me and which I had been clinging onto. She enabled me to have courage and self belief to get rid of those and to forge ahead so that I find myself in a new house, with a new job and rid of many toxic relationships in my life (mere dreams six months ago!). I truly believe I am a different person today and in a much better place for having met her.
There are not enough words that I could use to express how fulfilling I have found this experience and how much I have to thank Dianne for it.
I feel as if I have needed very different things at different times; Dianne has always been able to really listen and respond in a way that left me feeling completely understood.
Dianne really helped me form a pathway forward that I am not quite sure I would have been able to without her support.
The fact is, I can’t thank Dianne enough for being here for me over the last 12 months. Dianne saved me from and helped me through what felt like overwhelming distress. Helped me find the courage for the scary change bit and then to keep myself together.
I realise it’s all part of the job, but it makes such a difference to feel someone is genuinely listening, remembering and taking it seriously – it’s really helped.
I felt Dianne was there for – and with – me!. It was an experience of learning, transformational growth and healing. Even in the last minute she said something I really needed to hear – it has already made a difference in my way of thinking!
Working with Dianne has had a huge impact on my life.
Thanks to Dianne I was able to find the strength to remove myself from an unhealthy situation but also (possibly more importantly) embrace real self-understanding which has equipped me for many struggles that have come my way, personally and professionally.
I valued and appreciated every supervisory contact I have had with Dianne over the years, her professionalism and humaneness.
She was patient, listened and listened…she listened to my joy, frustrations and successful outcomes.

There are no words to express my gratitude for Dianne's guidance, care and being here for me.

I really couldn’t have got through the course, exam and accreditation without Dianne's support. I have learnt so much from her.
