Tihesha asks pointed, good questions and gets to the meat of things quickly. I appreciate this. I'm enjoying working with her.

Tihesha is a healthy minded intellectual who is attentive and listens to my needs and responds in a timely fashion. She has compassion and understanding which is a rare attribute where I live in South Wales

She’s consistent and patient. She listens well. I feel like she is genuinely concerned and through her approach, she authentically wants to help unlock and promote understanding and growth. She’s bomb.

It was great working through my problems with Tihesha! She is compassionate, patient and totally unjudgmental. I was always at ease when I talk to her and she offers me so much support in discovering myself again. Her insights has given me a lot of empowerment and motivate in finding my inner peace. Life is filled with ups and downs and that's what makes it interesting. Without problems and distress, we would not know what's worth fighting for. Thank you Tihesha for offering so much support that makes my life infinitely better. We need more people life you!

Tihesha is kind and listens to my concerns. She understand what I need help with and does everything she can to make sure I feel like I talked about what I needed to during the session. She also offers great techniques to help me and I can already see improvements after just a couple of weeks.

Tihesha really listens and cares, without judgment, offering understanding and explanation. She also knows you, and she knows when the hard times are hitting the hardest. I stayed sober during the hardest moment - and that's something you need support for.

Tihesha is really makes me feel understood, supported and listened to. She makes me feel she goes above and beyond to give me support. I feel she really cares.

Tihesha is warm and understanding. She really met me where I was at and it was really the type of thing I was looking for in a therapist.

I am grateful to share and not feel so alone. I thought I was going crazy in certain situations and it has been comforting knowing she understands and offers perspective I had not thought of before. I am better able to recognize my triggers and work on myself. She has given me a light to a path I didn’t think was reachable. I got out of rock bottom through her help when I felt like I would be there forever. I am hopeful for my future because of her guidance. A weight was lifted to know it’s okay to not be okay.

Tihesha Lemon-Deacon is the best therapist I've ever had. In less than two weeks she has helped so much already. I'm dealing with stuff I've ignored for over 20 years, traumas I didn't realize that I had or that they affected me. She has so much expertise & ability to help with really complicated diagnoses & situations. I definitely recommend. She is already helping me with stuff that psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, doctors, coaches, books, videos, courses, medications, etc (I've tried a lot of stuff) have been unable to help me with for 30+ years. Even one of the most senior, highly decorated and most expensive psychiatrists in my country, was unable to help. But Tihesha knows how best to help me, & knows all the different methods and styles of helping, better than all the other specialists who couldn't help me. I've been on very many different medications and I have been diagnosed with many different things over the years. But finally I can move on with my life now and get better, after decades of suffering, being unable to work, making bad choices, etc. If you've tried everything else, and think you can't get better, (or if you haven't tried anything before) I think Tihesha will definitely help you. From my experience. And she gives you the help you need tailored to you personally, so it works.

I have just started working with Tihesha Lemon-Deacon and had one video session but I am already amazed at her insight and empathy. She has such an aura of trustworthiness that makes you feel comfortable and helps so much to open up and talk about difficult issues. I am looking forward to proceed with my counseling with her.

She is wonderful. I was so skeptical at first but she quickly made me feel comfortable. She is patient & beyond understanding. I feel like I definitely was matched with the right counselor. This is experience is much better than the in office counseling I had previously tried. I hope to become more active in my counseling as I feel it will be very helpful.
