Feedback from clients:
“Victoria is an excellent Therapist. Being very patient during my treatment taking our time to answer the question “what has happened to you?“ before I met her I was scared, unable to work and unable to leave home. With her help we were working collaboratively to fully understand my trauma/PTSD and the effects it had on me, by using both methods of EMDR and CBT. She is very good at listening and understanding your experiences while being very supportive when times got tough due to my trauma triggers. I am very thankful for working with Victoria, truly has changed my life, before I was at the point of giving up and now after receiving treatment, I am now strong. She has inspired me to keep my head up high and to achieve my goals, truly thank you”.
I was lucky enough to see Victoria for therapy after suffering a breakdown due to the effects of Psychosis. I engaged in CBT and EMDR to help make sense of the trauma caused. Victoria was very professional, knowledgeable, and understanding. Thanks to her I was able to get through the toughest time of my life and regain some quality of life. I cannot thank her enough and would certainly recommend her to others. Andy
