This has been an amazing experience, a life changing one even, and in such a short space of time too.
I believe I've been equipped with the tools to go forward and navigate the issues life throws my way, and a mindset I'll continue to practice because of how effective it has been.
Its been super easy to get on Giovanni and open up, and this allowed me to easily speak on issues.
His approach and passion worked perfectly for me.
So much value gained from doing this.

I very much appreciated Givanni’s advice and approach. I find it very helpful to use the messaging ability to pre-discuss and make the video sessions as fruitful as possible.
Even though we haven’t had many sessions, I found them very helpful in conjunction with my own work and reading.

Written by T.I. on Jul 15, 2022 after therapy with Giovanni for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Giovanni has been an incredible therapist. He is very present and thoughtful in our sessions, and always follows up on the things most important to me. He is very involved in chat as well, which is nice for support in between sessions. His wisdom and guidance have been immensely helpful in my journey. I've been to a few different therapists and counselors, I would recommend Giovanni over all of them.

Mr. Giovanni Bass is one of the best therapists I have had the pleasure to meet. He is professional and friendly and he's sessions are far from boring.

He challenged me and uplifted me and made me see myself in ways I couldn't imagine. His use of Biblical scripture in our therapy sessions combined with guided counselling is highly valuable.

I would highly recommend Giovanni to anyone in need of therapy counselling with a spiritual perspective.
