Claudette is an incredible therapist. She makes me feel seen, validated, and understood, while also giving me tools to help with anxiety, and fear.

It's been a great pleasure to talk to Claudette. She really listens to me and knows my concern. She is professional, wise, compassionate and friendly. I feel that i can always trust her and share with her about my emotions and thoughts. I definitely recommend Claudette!

Claudette is empathetic, kind, resourceful, action focused and a wonderful listener! I feel relieved to have her in this practice!

Written by V.A. on Oct 19, 2021 after therapy with Claudette for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I absolutely love Claudette, her ability to help in the most natural way, and would recommend her to everyone. She helped me in my lowest times, she listened, understood, helped me to calm down when needed, and offered countless resources for me to learn to manage by myself. She helped me to build my awareness and find techniques to turn to when I am struggling, but also practices that I believe will help me to continue with my progress even without our weekly sessions (although I will miss her a lot!). I cannot be more grateful.

Claudette is incredible. She’s wise and empathetic, but also calls me out on my nonsense. I can’t recommend her enough.

Claudette is great - she really helps me, guides me through different ways how to deal with stuff, introduced me to meditation and overall is a really good counselor.

CLAUDETTE IS VERY ATTENTIVE AND KIND. RESPECTFUL AND NON JUDGEMENTAL. SHE LISTENS AND ALLOWS ME TO COME TO MY OWN UNDERSTAND. SHE DOESN'T SAY WHAT I WANT HEAR. SHE GUIDES ME AND SAYS WHAT I NEED TO HEAR. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

I would recommend anyone to have a talk with Claudette, in good or in bad times. Intelligent and compassionate person. Very good listener and capable to explore and discuss problems at a practical/pragmatic as well as philosophical level. I feel comfortable talking to her and I feel that she is very experienced.

Over the few months that Claudette has helped me, I feel I have made immense progress. She is kind and caring but honest. She will be there to listen and support but she will also confront you and teach you to confront your own behaviour. I am extremely grateful for Claudette and for everything she has taught me and helped me learn about myself. I am eternally thankful for her.

Written by A.R. on May 29, 2021 after therapy with Claudette for 8 months

I can absolutely recommend Claudette and say only the positives about her: she is always very kind and patient with my concerns. She works with both short and long term in mind: addressing any immediate pain points while working towards long term goals at the same time. She is a keen listener who is able to provide practical and compassionate advice

Claudette has been more than a therapist, she feels like a spiritual guide. Guiding me through this thing called life and my beautiful mess. She made me see that I should sometimes put my needs first and when I did that the healing truly began. Her presence in my life is truly a blessing.

Claudette is kind, empathetic, insightful, and a great listener. She embeds mindfulness techniques into every session, which is exactly what I needed. She truly listens to me, and offers differing perspectives and ways of viewing my situations. I wanted someone who set me worksheets and exercises between sessions, and she has already provided me with really helpful tools to use in my life. She helps me hold myself accountable for my own wellbeing, and I would recommend her to every one of my friends and family!

10000% recommend Claudette. She is a great listener, and has gotten me to reprogram my way of viewing things in the outside world to work towards my goals. I'm leaps and bounds above where I was emotionally and mentally when compared to a few months ago. It's showing in the way I interact with people.

Claudette is great at meeting you where you are. She is really excellent at knowing when to give you gentle reassurance or push you a bit harder to do the work on yourself. It’s only been a couple of weeks but she’s already learned a lot about me and has provided incredibly insightful comments and support. She answers messages really quickly and signposts so many helpful resources. Thank you Claudette!

Written by H.A. on Aug 01, 2020 after therapy with Claudette for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and anger management

I’ve only been with Claudette for about 3 weeks now, and from the get go it was about tackling the main issues I’m experiencing. Claudettes approach to kind of get things done is definitely needed and much appreciated because it leads me to certain conclusions that I would not come to on my own. She is supportive, listens and gives a genuinely interesting perspective on how to change our own perspectives.

Since I've started counseling with Claudette, it generated an incredible amount of confidence in myself and it tampered my anxiety considerably because she knows what to do with my issues.

Claudette has a no-bullshit attitude in the most compassionate way. She's helping me acknowledge some areas of myself that I've been unable to fully sit with on my own. We've only had a few sessions, but I am very happy with the services I've received thus far and would highly recommend.
