Jacqueline is a lovely person and very nice to talk to. However as a counsellor at times I felt she was too harsh and judgmental. Which is not helpful for a person with low self esteem like me. I did learn a lot too which was great of course. It’s a shame she was not very responsive to messages, and often late for sessions. But she helped me with some fears and anxieties, which was good.

Jacqueline is such a wonderful therapist. She is very compassionate, validating, astute, and passionate about her clients' well-being. She is also very adaptable and very reflexive and is wonderful about receiving feedback. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so without hesitation.
