Gaynor has absolutely changed my life for the better! I knew from day one that I was in good hands. She helped me get through one of the most challenging and difficult times in my life and continued to work with me to address some issues that I had been dealing with for YEARS. She is kind, a wonderful listener, gives amazing insight, and helped me learn things about myself to better deal with things going on in my life. I looked forward to every session and would recommend her to any of my friends or family. Can't say enough good things about her, she's wonderful and I am so thankful to have worked with her.

Gaynor is so lovely to work with. She is kind, honest and insightful . She is always available when I need her and very accommodating. She knows when I need a push and when to just listen and be supportive. She is great at recognizing where I am at emotionally and meeting me there while at the same time helping me progress in the healing process. Gaynor is down to earth and warm. I am so thankful for all she has done to help me.

Written by E.M. on Jul 31, 2022 after therapy with Gaynor for 5 months on issues concerning depression, self esteem, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Gaynor has honestly been so helpful! She’s amazing. She has been my first therapist and I feel she really understands me and sets relevant challenges and worksheets to get through, that ultimately helped me get through many of my reoccurring problems which I can now face head on knowing what to do. I can’t recommend her enough and wouldn’t hesitate to request her again if I come back to therapy in the future.

Written by C.Y. on Jul 13, 2022 after therapy with Gaynor for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, and grief

Gaynor has been amazing! I don't know that I would have been able to get over my relationship loss as well without her support. She's very supportive and caring. To know that I can message her whenever I need to has made me feel much less lonely. She's also helped me reflect on things I wouldn't have considered but that will likely help me in the future. I have really enjoyed working with her!

She is fantastic and I highly recommend!

Written by S.A. on Jun 25, 2022 after therapy with Gaynor for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Gaynor has been my therapist for around 9 months and our weekly sessions have helped me become so much more confident in everyday life.
Gaynor is a great listener and always provides the best advice and feedback on how to deal with difficult life situations, thanks to which I’ve learned invaluable skills as well as learned to trust myself more. As a young adult, I feel like I’ve grown so much as a person just during the period that Gaynor counselled me and I couldn’t possibly recommend a better therapist!

Gaynor is the most wonderful! She is kind and funny and supportive, but also fantastic at challenging you to work on yourself. She was very clear in trying to understand what I was struggling with so that we could work on what I needed, and had loads of flexibility with schedule and day-to-day anxieties etc. Truly a wonderful therapist and person!

I have been having an intense struggle with anxiety, so much so that I wasn’t sure I could work anymore. Gaynor has helped me turn the corner by giving me some strategies to use daily and during times of intense anxiety. She has also helped me dig deeper into why I have been so anxious and address the root causes. I am so grateful.

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.

Written by E.L. on Sep 05, 2021 after therapy with Gaynor for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

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.

Written by S.L. on Jun 18, 2021 after therapy with Gaynor for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, grief, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

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!
