I have received lots of positive feedback over the years. I take constructive feedback to supervision, and assimilate it into my professional practice. Below is feedback typical of what I receive. I have de-personalised it so that I adhere to NZAC's ethical requirements:
Thank you for the time yesterday, and the space that you create to be felt and heard.
We trust your judgement about recommending someone for our friends out of town.
The guidance you gave me last time was the best advice I've ever been given. I wish I'd listened to it and actioned it five years ago.
Thank you so much for your time. It really makes a difference.
I can’t believe how much I got out of our last session.
This is so much better than therapy I had in another country, where they asked minimal questions for years, and I had to work out all the answers.
The skills you’ve taught me have been noticed at work. They’ve noticed I’ve changed my approach to clients in a positive way.
Thank you so much Suzi. I love those practical suggestions. You have been a wonderful support to me and you getting my situation in the acute stages really helped.
Thank you for all your time with my partner and I over the past 6-8 months. I found your sessions helpful and along the way I have learnt a lot about myself.
Thanks for making the sessions as easy as possible, with no judgement and a relaxed environment.
You’ve given us all the tools. It’s up to us to use them.
Thank you for your help this year you really made a difference to many aspects of my life and made this year that little more achievable.
This has been very powerful and eye-opening.
I have more hope after our chat than I did beforehand.
What you said last time really resonated with me.
People at work are noticing how much more positive I am since I started coming to see you.
That was so helpful, thank you.
You’re making an impact. I stayed calm when I spoke up today.
Your words, have been in my mind for the last few months and have driven everything I have done. Thank you for your help and for your words, they have been very powerful to me.
Out of all the counsellors my [teenage] daughter saw, you’re the one she felt most comfortable with.
I’m very grateful for our last session. It’s given me perspective.
It’s been great to talk about the issues that were beneath the surface.
You’ve literally changed our lives.
Your suggestion to support and not judge was very powerful.
Counselling with you is a good reminder of what I need to do for myself.
I have really enjoyed our time and got a lot out of it. I think you’re a great counsellor with a lot to offer.
This was so much better than I expected. I thought I was going to have a whole lot of jargon thrown at me.
We’ve come a long way in the last few weeks. We used to have a blowout every week.
This has been a real learning experience for me.
You’re exactly right - my expectations are sometimes unrealistic.
I almost didn’t come; wanted to go home and cry. I’m glad I came. I feel better.
Seeing you gives me courage.
This is really helpful. I’m telling others about you.
All the little things we talked about last week are already making a difference. My wife has noticed a difference.
Getting techniques to work with is very helpful, rather than just talking.
That was very helpful. You’ve given me a lot to think about.
I would like to thank you for last night’s appointment. I felt lighter and brighter after it and start today with my self care homework. Look forward to seeing you again next month.
I find this so helpful. I am learning so much about my wife [married over 30 years].
Best EAP counsellor I have seen out of four.
Thank you once again for seeing me today. You are amazing and like I said before, the best experience I have had with a counsellor.
