I love my chats with Kimberley. She is very attentive and takes the time to listen in great detail. I always come away with much better insight and information to help me manage things. Thank you

Since having therapy sessions with Kimberley my mental health scores for anxiety and depression have remained consistent and very manageable. She has always come off of our calls with what we've talked about and considered solutions on that call or found ways to tackle the issues after the calls and sent me guides on techniques to help. I think I've now got most of my life under control and it's just looking into ways to improve my situation now rather than just putting out fires.

Kimberley has led me back to myself lately. She’s really helped me lay some foundational work within myself and I’ve never felt better equipped to manage things in my life. I couldn’t have got through these last few months without her.

Kimberley has helped me work through many of my issues. She is very open to discussing any topics I have on my mind and also helps guide our sessions to help me reach topics I may not know I needed help reaching. I appreciate her approach and look forward to continuing our time together.

Kimberley is great. She's friendly, pragmatic, and evidence-based. She is also really responsive to feedback, regularly checks what we are trying out is working for me, and is happy to adapt and try out new things.

Only just started with sessions with Kimberly, but so far she has been friendly and provided a safe space for me to open up. She supportive, has some interesting insights and responds to any questions in a timely manner. The sessions have been nicely paced. I don't feel rushed or uncomfortable and good questions are thrown in for me to answer or consider for next time. Worksheets and resources have been provided for further understanding.
