Denise has been great for me. She lets me talk when I have a lot to say and asks good questions without pressuring me when I am not feeling up to it.

I've been having counselling with Denise for several months now. Before having counselling I was extremely sceptical as to whether counselling would be right for me or does if even work....now I would recommend counselling to anyone that I thought needed it. The support and understanding Denise has given me as been invaluable. Denise has very much become a part of my life, I find my self thinking what would Denise say right now....

I am really enjoying working with Denise. She is incredibly personable and authentic which makes this process a lot less intimidating. She also offers lots of different options to try and is very honest with her own experiences. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Denise to other people thinking of trying this type of therapy for the first time
