I've been learning so much through talking with Joycinth! She is super attentive and asks question that always makes me notice my feelings. She has provided me with important tools to work with my emotions and through a difficult life situation and I never feel pressured to talk to her.

Joy is such an amazing counsellor! She is someone who I felt I have been able to open up to a lot more than my previous counsellors! She always makes room to accommodate our time differences with sessions. Joy is able to empathize and provide good resources and guidance to becoming a better individual. I am glad I got matched with her :)

Joy is an amazing woman! I ramble lots, but she makes sure to clarify and identify the real problems. Very professional, and very personal as well! Therapy has been an intimate thing, and I never feel awkward with her. She’s careful with her words. As someone whose passion is language, I appreciate that so much!

Joycinth is a great counsellor. She's attentive, understanding and provides you with practical tips and tools.
This was my first therapy experience and I found it very insighful. I learnt to verbalise things that I'd never spoken about before, and the tools Joycinth provided me with have assisted me in navigating how I feel and think.
