Amy has literally been God sent to me. I was matched with her during one of the lowest point in my life. Yet her unique experiences, knowledge and compassion is a powerful combination that was exactly what I needed. She has supported me with the big picture and the details. A pro through and through. 10 out of 10.
100% fantastic. She cares, and she knows what she’s talking about. Very insightful and has great points and helpful tips.
Amy Kelley is very professional, efficient and endearing. She provides quality insight via anecdotal or scientific examples that help someone like me understand exactly what’s going on in my brain. She doesn’t make me feel judged while providing necessary honesty and is a very effective communicator.
I can highly recommend Amy Kelley, I will be continuing with her for the foreseeable future.
Amy Kelley was a very nice therapist. She always understood exactly what I needed to hear and her expertise on BPD was very outstanding. Despite me having to cancel therapy due to my own financial struggles, I really had no problem with Amy. She was a very nice extra voice to have over the phone who I could confide in and figure out what the heck was goin on in my brain.
Appreciate her hard work
Amy is the first councillor that I have ever worked with and honestly with running the risk of sounding melodramatic, this experience has been life changing. Amy has a wonderful and approachable nature. She is warm and kind and so easy to speak to. It feels less like therapy and more like gaining incredible sage advice from an old friend. She has guided me to see my full potential, and has helped me change my mindset into one focuses on the positive in my life. She has enabled me to see what I want my life to look like and helped me realise that I have the ability to make that happen. I can not recommend this incredible human enough.
