Feedback about online therapy with Hannah
“Therapy with Hannah has totally transformed how I think about myself and others, the overwhelming negativity which had been present my entire adult life has lifted and been replaced with creativity, confidence and a more compassionate understanding of my own difficulties and those experienced by the people around me.”
"I feel so much more confident and happy within myself. I know how to be compassionate towards myself and others. “
"I feel like I am finally the person I have wanted to be for a long time thanks to therapy. I am now my own best friend and I can take care of myself compassionately, which is something I could never have done without therapy.“
“The time spent with Hannah has been hugely beneficial. The sessions have enabled me to harness a kinder and less critical inner voice. I have a deep appreciation for things now, and a deep understanding of the importance of the drive, soothing and threat systems. I am able to identify more easily when I am threat activated and I can bring myself back into the soothing system much more easily. Without the sessions with Hannah I don't feel I could have made such progress. I was in a very very dark and lonely place and needed someone wise and kind to help contain and steer me gently in the right direction. Hannah is without doubt one of the most compassionate practitioners I have ever met. Her ability to get to the heart of things, as well as to challenge in a way that is non confrontational is amazing. I enjoyed being able to bounce ideas back and forth with Hannah, and I enjoyed how easy it was to speak with her and pour out the things that had been troubling me. I never felt judged, I never felt foolish or undermined by Hannah. I felt validated and acknowledged. Thank you Hannah. You are an amazing practitioner and your clients including myself are extremely lucky to have met you and to have benefited from your knowledge and expertise.”
