I've been very impressed with Gaynor to say the very least. She has a very warm disposition and exudes a professional confidence that was very reassuring for me. I felt immediately that she was great at her job and that she could help. And I was right. I couldn't recommend her any more highly. I found myself looking forward to each session. I was left feeling like not only was I heard and understood, but her insight offered me a refreshing new perspective on the things I was struggling with. She is the consummate professional and an excellent therapist and I'm so very thankful for her.

Amazing.
Gaynor has a calming and accepting approach that consistently gives me insights and clarity to move forward in my grieving process and how to balance the pressures of life with my mental health. She provides practical steps to help me move forward while still practicing gentleness and acceptance of my current state of mind. Lovely balance.

My first therapist ever, so grateful to have been matched with Gaynor. She communicated openly, valued my time and I found her knowledge and insight so helpful.

I worked with Dr Butler for a few months because of some pretty bad relationship issues. I was in a terrible, dark place when I started, but she was nothing more than amazing, Helping me by not only talking to me, but giving me real mental tools to be able to tackle my issues. I could not have been happier with a therapist, especially since I've been through quite a few before who were not this caliber.

I’ve only had a few sessions with Gaynor so far but she has been great! The sessions have been so insightful and have left me feeling so much more positive and clearer minded. Massively recommend.

I wasent sure what to expect, in general, about how counseling and talking to a therapist worked, because I havent really ever sought help from one before. I 've found that Gaynor has made me feel very comfortable with choosing to seek help with my depression, and in no way have I felt as though choosing to seek help makes me weak or broken, or like there is something critically wrong with me for having to seek help. The approach that I've noticed being used with my particular issues is very encouraging and not at all demeaning or condescending. I have appreciated how quickly she has responded to questions I've had, and especially how when I was panicking or feeling like I was having an anxiety attack, my issues were addressed very quickly and the level of professionalism that I've been treated with has helped with making this platform really worth the money I'm paying for the access to it. Gaynor has been effective in very tactfully opening my eyes to some of the things I viewed as issues or negatively impacting my life and helping me see these things from a different perspective, and this has sort of fast tracked certain things I previously figured I'd need to spend more time on resolving. I also appreciate the way that dealing with the issues I've have so far with her, where I assumed prior to starting to use this service that it was going to be a stressful and tense time, she has made the time spent working through those issues very positive and uplifting. All in all, I think Gaynor is very qualified and competent, and it is clear she enjoys helping people which just adds value to the whole experience and atmosphere surrounding the trek to better mental health.

Gaynor is incredible. I’d been reluctant to try counselling for a long time and I’m so glad that I was matched with her when I finally decided to take the plunge. Gaynor’s overall approach is so friendly and kind, each session feels like you’re just having a chat, even when you’re covering some deep subjects. I’ve noticed a huge change in where I began and where I ended and I’m confident that going forward I’ll be able to take myself back to all of our conversations and apply everything we talked about. Gaynor, you’re an absolute superstar, thank you so much!

Gaynor is a wonderful therapist, she is an active listener and reframes what I have told her as to ensure that she and I are on the same page. She is very perceptive and provides such wonderful insights as to what it is that I am experiencing in my life. I appreciate her kindness and honesty, and I feel as though I will be able to make great progress with her via the virtual format.
