I am grateful to have found Jodie as she has helped me a lot these past couple of years. Jodie is the longest therapist I have had, before her I went through several therapists that lasted a few months each. Jodie has got a good balance of being nurturing and also direct. She never hesitates to tell it how it is, but doing it in a way that doesn't make me defensive and instead more open minded to listen.
After seeing Jodie for a year I also did EMDR. EMDR trauma therapy is not fun and you feel pretty rubbish during and after, then one day you feel ok. There wasn't one session where I didn't feel overwhelmed with emotions.
Although EMDR is really difficult, it has really helped me with my trauma around the abuse from my grandmother as a child and can honestly say that there has been a huge shift in my confidence and feeling comfortable in my own skin. It feels great to be able to say that I deserve to be loved and am super awesome without feeling awkward about it.

I experienced a horrendous trauma a few years ago which was still causing significant issues for me on a daily basis. My psychiatrist referred me to Jodie and when she spoke about EMDR I was skeptical. I have just finished processing one trauma and after 12 weekly sessions I literally can not believe the difference. Jodie made me feel safe through the entire process which was difficult at times. The trauma now feels totally different and I feel less reactive to the things that used to trigger me. I feel like I am safe in the world again. Thank you thank you thank....eternally grateful

I came to Jodie for help with Binge eating disorder in 2016. Less than two years later my life has totally transformed. I now trust myself to eat what I want, when I want, when I want it and to ask for help when I need it which I sometimes do. I have no restrictions and can not ever imagine dieting being a part of my life again.
Jodie helped me through a meal plan, an ADHD diagnosis at 37, depression, interpersonal relationship woes and a career transformation. She guided me in developing emotional self regulation and confronting a deep seated belief that I was worthless. I now have a career in something I love, stable relationships in which I have a voice, and a loving and secure sense of myself and my own value within the world. I cannot stress her value enough-without her I doubt I would have made it. With her, I finally moving toward fulfilling my potential- as I envision it.

Jodie is by far the best therapist I have ever seen; never gets frustrated with the inevitable ups and downs of my recovery. Jodie is professional at all times yet genuinely caring and has always provided me with a safe environment where I can express my true feelings without fear of judgement or invalidation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jodie even if you think you have tried everything.

I was referred to Jodie through my medical insurance having never seen a therapist before and feelings somewhat nervous about doing so. She has helped me to reframe and make sense of some really difficult events in my life and has been been an incredible support to me in the last few months. I will miss our sessions and thank you for all you have done.

I have been working with Jodie since last September 2016. I went to see her after being diagnosed with anxiety. She helped me to understand my anxiety, helped me to understand my behaviour and helped me to find ways of managing it. She is really human and you can tell she really does care. I have laughed and cried in sessions with her and really do trust her. I am so grateful to have found her. I don't see her as often anymore but I know if I have a hiccup she is there for me.

I have struggled with Bulimia, self harm and depression for years and really felt beyond help. Other people I knew had seen Jodie before as she is well known for facilitating a local eating disorders group. I am not really sure why I was resistant to seeing her but i am so pleased I did. In the last few months I have come a long way with her input and the other people involved in my care that she referred me to. Its really hard to explain how she works but from the moment I met her I felt really supported and cared for. That's not to say she would not challenge me because she would, but you always know its coming from the best place.

My experience with Jodie has been life changing. It is not often you come across someone who you can instantly trust and is easy to confide in. The sessions are friendly and in a calm atmosphere where you feel completely relaxed. Choosing Jodie to be my counsellor has been one of the best life choices I have ever made.

I have only been seeing Jodie for a short time but the first thing I noticed is just how insightful she is. Jodie was able to get a really good understanding of me and give me helpful advice from the first session. I have been to many therapists in the past and I have never experienced anyone as kind, understanding, welcoming and insightful as Jodie. Jodie is very wise and non judgemental and I highly recommend her.

In terms of you and what you did for me, you really have been my point of reference. I have seen a few therapists out here but did not like any of them. I miss your approach. In all of this you have been my rock, my guardian angel.

I have only been having counselling sessions with Jodie for about three months now, but already I feel so understood, and so supported through my struggles with depression, anxiety and an eating disorder. In sessions, she picks up on the smallest detail and is able to find underlying issues that are causing me to struggle with day-to-day life. Afterwards, my mind feels more connected and I feel more in tact with myself again. What is also so lovely is that I can contact her at any time, and she's always willing to give me a call or text me with advice on how to handle a tough day. I'm very grateful to have found Jodie, as she has helped me so much in my first few months of University.

Jodie has been my eating disorder therapist for the last few years. She has acted as the keystone of my support whilst I made the difficult transition of coming out of an inpatient unit into home life again. She is caring, committed and professional and has the tools to deal with the complexity of any eating disorder. Without her I do not know where I would be. I can not recommend her enough!

Caring, insightful, challenging and compassionate are the words that spring to mind! Jodie has walked by my side for my entire recovery journey so far and with her help I am two years sober.

I was in such a mess before I met Jodie. My anxiety was ruining my life. I am now living my life again...its not always easy but I am in a far better place thanks to the tools I received in counselling.
