Written by M.I. on Jan 28, 2021 after counseling with Iris for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

I have been working with Iris for a few months now, and she has helped me with managing my anxiety and building my confidence through self-love. She listens and provides honest feedback. Working with Iris and putting the work in has helped me improve my relationships and has made a noticeable difference in my life. I feel like I am becoming a more authentic version of myself.

I have only had 2 sessions with Iris but she is remarkably kind and so easy to share with I feel at peace with myself and have such clarity of thought at our sessions.

Iris has been incredibly helpful with me. She’s a great listener, is upfront and direct when I need her to be. She responds to my messages quite quickly and is easy to talk too. I’m grateful every day I took this leap for myself.

Iris is a caring, strong, and wise woman. She has supported me all along. I am grateful to have met her. She has helped me felt much better. Now, I am able to walk the journey of healing much easier because of her. Much love.

She is so awesome! She listens to what I have to say and then responds with ways to help and gets on your level. I love her!

Written by A.N. on Dec 15, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 1 month on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Iris was wonderful and exceeded my expectations!
My previous counselling experience was very 'clinical' and I did not feel I benefited from it but Iris was the total opposite. She made me feel comfortable from the start, gave me space to talk and work through my problems and, most importantly, gave practical advice for how to improve my mental health. Iris is really easy to talk to, an excellent listener and I feel she really believes in what she does - I never once felt 'talked down to', she always spoke to me with a balance of empathy and practicality.

I have only been having counseling sessions with Iris for a couple of months but she has already made such a difference to my life. I've learned so much about how to manage the depression which has affected my life for so long. I feel like a normal functioning person for the first time in ages and if I do go through a bad spell, I know how to get myself back to normal.

It's not an easy journey to break habits of a lifetime but Iris is very friendly, non-judgemental and encouraging. She is sympathetic, a good listener and makes me feel like I can beat this illness.

Even when I don’t feel like talking she’s a pleasure to chat with. Just that in itself will lift my spirits a bit. She has a good energy and is engaging.

Iris was really good the first time I had counseling with her and am so thankful that she is still available to continue now that I have renewed my subscription.

Written by A.N. on Oct 19, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I've been working with Iris for a few months and so many people have commented on how much happier I seem in that time. Iris is such a great listener, and always supportive. I just find talking to these calming and really value the tool shes taught me to cope with my struggles better.

Written by S.O. on Oct 01, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Iris is a compassionate and avid listener who can get to the center of what you are thinking. She offers good advice and thought provoking advice which I find valuable. I would recommend her (and have).

Amazing

Written by S.O. on Aug 24, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 1 month on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

Iris is a great listener and the best! She has helped me identify my issues. She has also helped me to get through those issues with the great tools/resources she had provided for me. Iris could really understand and respect how I feel about the situations I'm having. She's very patient. I'm really grateful for having her as my counselor.

Written by M.A. on Aug 06, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and parenting issues

Iris is exactly what I have been looking for! She gets straight to the point and gives you tools to work with. I have had trouble finding a good counselor up until now, I feel like most of them just sit there and listen and give me nothing.

Written by S.O. on Jul 19, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

I’ve only had 1 live session with Iris but I already feel so much better after the 1 session and speaking on the 24/7 chat with her. She’s kind, patient and understanding and offers a range of ways to help me cope with my phobia and anxiety.
It’s nice to know I have someone to talk to and someone who listens and responds quickly with helpful advice.

Written by L.I. on Jul 19, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

I have only had 2 sessions with Iris but I already feel more positive and on the right path. I’d recommend her to anyone!

Written by G.E. on Jul 19, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and anger management

I like Iris. I trust her and she understands that I have been going through a very tough time. She is patient when I talk about my personal issues and gives good advice. She has given me exercises to do and made recommendations for meditations which have been helpful. I look forward to continuing to work with Iris.

Written by A.M. on Jun 24, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Iris and I clicked because she has a sensitive, compassionate, but also no-nonsense attitude. She doesn’t sugar coat what I need to hear or coddle me, which I need. I’m a strong personality with a lot of professional success and I needed someone who would tell it to me straight and be firm. She has been such a supportive lifeline during some really bad circumstances and I am grateful we were matched.

Written by D.A. on Jun 14, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 1 month on issues concerning depression, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

Iris is a fantastic listener and has been great to talk to. She and I shared so many opinions and we’re able to talk through various events in my life to help make sense of them. I am so thankful for her kindness and time.

Written by S.U. on Jun 11, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Iris has been great, I went in looking to get help on anger issues but she quickly recognized that I needed help with my overall health. She has been great in listening to me, getting to my root issues, educating me on working through them and actively corresponding with me in between sessions.

Written by E.M. on Jun 10, 2020 after counseling with Iris for 2 weeks on issues concerning grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

I’ve had Iris for two weeks and could not be happier. She is kind, understanding, and the perfect balance of easy to talk to and complete expert. Highly recommend.

Iris helped me find peace of mind so quickly. Even before our first session, I was put at ease with our exchange through messages.

I've only had a couple of appointments with Iris so far, but I have found them useful and supportive, and quite practical in terms of giving me the tools to get myself out of the funk I find myself in...

Iris was very helpful in assessing were we needed to start from reading text sessions. Didn’t feel that we focused to much in history and was able to quickly get into the meat and potatoes of what needs to be worked on. Looking forward to continuing counseling with Iris.

When I speak to iris, I feel a lot clarity and I can figure out how best to approach my problems. I have grown my communication skills to improve my relationship and developed the confidence to speak up for myself at work and in my personal life. In just a few short weeks, Iris has helped me to transform my outlook on life and has given me so much hope for the future!
