Client feedback

I have received lots of positive feedback over the years. I take constructive feedback to supervision, and assimilate it into my professional practice. I have de-personalised the feedback below so that I adhere to NZAC's ethical requirements:

  • Our sessions together have saved me.

  • Having regular therapy helps me stay clear on what's important.

  • When I follow the processes you've given me, things go really well in my life.

  • I wish I'd started therapy years ago. I've learned so much about myself.

  • You are very good at your job; I find my way back to myself when I return to check in for a few sessions.

  • What you said resounds for me on many levels, and in several aspects of my being. Thank you for always creating the container for me to express that which I may already know, but you safely hold so that recognition can register and knowingness can land.

  • I liked Suzi, she is very open and I felt very comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings, I was able to make a connection as soon as we met. Having someone understand you is paramount, Suzi was able to help me up when I wasn't able to pick myself up. I feel great, and will continue to feel great after these sessions.

  • I extremely appreciate how Suzi made me understand my situation and how she provided means to address my issues/concerns. The "tools" she has given me has made a massive positive impact on how I treat myself and my workload. These tools will help me cope with work related stress and live a healthier way of life. Thank very much Suzi.

  • I tried five other therapists before you. Although I got some useful tips from the others, I feel most comfortable with you.

  • I felt my shoulders were 10cm lower after our first session.

  • You asked me a penetrative, perceptive question during our last session.

  • You really helped me find my way.

  • Our last session blew my mind - I felt liberated as a result.

  • Your business premises look very professional.

  • That's exactly what I needed for our session today, thank you.

  • Thank you for your help Suzi, it really has changed my life for the better.

  • Your true gift is that you react with compassion, empathy and common sense, to help me in so many different ways.

  • I have especially appreciated your pragmatic, empathetic and balanced advise, reasoning and energy.

  • I am alive because of you.

  • This first session was really helpful. I got more out of it than all the sessions with my previous therapist.

  • 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.
