When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for.

The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.

"Diane always made me feel at ease ..."

“Before coming to see Diane I was suffering with a lot of anxiety, especially from my friendship group at school. I had low self-esteem and was taking negative comments I received from people to heart-I wasn’t feeling like myself anymore.

“Prior to my first session I was extremely nervous, however I had no need to be. Diane always made me feel at ease and gave me constructive and valuable therapy-which will stay with me forever. I underestimated just how the process of talking would benefit me! It was a huge relief going to see her, just 1 hour of talking changed how I felt for the full week ahead.  We tackled my problems every Wednesday until I felt like the old me again.

“No matter how silly you may think your problems are there is no judgement, Diane always has a magic way to overcome any negative feelings- long-term.

“It was definitely worth going; in just over 3 months I have succeeded in feeling a lot more confident and to always remember that being yourself is enough, whilst most importantly meeting the most amazing counsellor.

“I can’t thank her enough for making me the person that I want to be.”
