I love working with John. He’s easy to talk to and is always able to provide me with additional resources through videos, articles, or books to help understand and work through my issues.
So far my experience with John has been positive. John is very caring and empathetic towards my personal situation. I feel very comfortable revealing my deepest darkest thoughts because John has created such a safe space and for that I am deeply thankful.
Mr. John is a very supportive person, pays a great deal of attention and does his best to guide you in any problem you may have, which most times is all we need.
John is a great councilor. I felt very safe discussing my situation and John was very good at helping me work through my thinking process in a supportive way.
John is very nice and understanding and also experienced with dealing with the issues I have and knowing what to say and what I could do to help me. I’ve felt lighter talking with him. I appreciate and would recommend:)
John takes the time to listen to my concerns during our sessions, He's very easy to talk with and he cares about my well being.
I look forward to talking with him on a weekly basis regarding my state of mind and socializing with others. I believe that he does a very good job using client-centered therapy when working with me!
John's been really approachable and patient in listening to my concerns. He offered really good help and also helped me get a better perspective on my personal circumstances. He has a way to summarise issues in a way that one is able to understand very clearly where the main problems lie and I really enjoyed my sessions with him. Thanks
John Dwyer is a very good listner and gives very practical and effective solutions to a given situation!
Very great listener and respectful of my needs.
He is really helping me. Great listener
Very Cindy and considerate. Much appreciated
Everything is great!
I live in the uk and have had counselling through the NHS before, so I have no idea of the difference in quality between free counselling here in the uk, and private counselling elsewhere, I will however state that the difference between my previous (NHS) counsellor and John Dwyer shows that private counsellors are much more effective for me, this man shows understanding of my situation, helps me understand not only why I am having trouble, but that a lot of others would too, while also factoring in my age, life experience, experience in my professional life, and my strongest personality traits. This all lead to him really understanding my behaviour, my emotions, thought process, and reactions to situations I have trouble with, which means that he is able to tailor his advice, and his opinions to me personally and my situation specifically. Highly recommend for anyone
John has been a great help with handling stress and anxiety in my day to day life. Great listener and very easy to talk too. Always gives good pointers and cares.
Very patient and encouraging
The advice I got from John helped me a lot. Changing the view on life from negative to positive and how to do that is something that I haven't seen or thought of before and John helped me learn it.
