Testimonials

Andrea’s kind words and thoughtful insights have been a breath of fresh air. Having never experienced counselling before, I can wholeheartedly say that the whole experience was life changing. Andrea listened carefully to my worries and helped me in many ways I wouldn’t have ever imagined I needed help and support with. I would highly recommend Andrea and will be doing so to friends and family as she provides a wonderful service. I would like to say thank you for taking the time to talk to me, I genuinely feel like you have listened and cared about what I had to say over the time we spent talking and that is comforting. I very much appreciate what you have done for me and in turn, for my family. Thank you. J Mark 15.5.2020

Andrea has helped me through a very complex process of coming to terms with family issues that I have been struggling with over the last 30 years. She has a remarkable ability to make you feel safe and to actively listen in a non judgmental way to the meaning behind the words that are being spoken. She didn’t tell me what to do, she guided me to make my own connections and understandings in an emotionally intelligent and sympathetic manner that has enabled me to confront the defining emotional issue of my life and resolve it in a way that has left me feeling in control. I finally feel as if I have turned a corner and am now in the driving seat of my emotional life, rather than being a hostage to slings and arrows of past damage. I can’t thank her enough for providing such a safe and caring counselling experience – some people are naturally gifted at helping others to understand and work through their emotional difficulties, and Andrea can most certainly be counted among them. I really feel that I have lucked out in my first experience of mental health services, to have found someone who is as gifted within the counselling process as she is a genuinely lovely person who makes you look forward to your next session, rather than feeling as if it is something you ‘have’ to do. Thank you so much. S Dee 11.9.2019

Andrea changed my life for the better. A truly incredible lady with so much care and attention in what she does, I owe her everything and cannot recommend her enough.  H Giles 22.9.2018

Andrea welcomes you in to her home as a friend and instantly helps you feel at ease with her easy going and caring personality. For me I walked in to a world that made me feel safe and in a calm professional atmosphere. Andrea has an amazing ability to listen and respond in such a way that you actually look forward to your next visit with her. She has helped me so much in such a relatively short period of time, I’ve learnt ways to help me cope with things and there is a light at the end of my road these days. After many years in the mental health system, I can honestly say Andrea (Dori to her friends) has helped me the most! The Bins are working for me ! I could never thank you enough.

Andrea has helped my son (aged 7) through what has been an emotional & tough time for both him and us as a family, I lost my loveable little boy for a while but with Andrea’s help I now have him back and for that I can’t thank her enough. He took an instant like to her & we were all made to feel very welcome. Just a thank you doesn’t seem enough for all she has done.

Fantastic counselor. I’ve recommended a number of people to her having had such a positive experience myself. So friendly and approachable, you find yourself at ease very quickly. Her experience shows. And now she’s qualified to do sessions via skype etc, she’s accessible to everyone which is just brilliant news!
