What Clients Say About Me?

Based on 73 reviews
Over 2 years of therapy with Siobhan changed the trajectory of my life and has shaped the young woman I am today in so many wonderful ways. I had tried therapy with a handful of other well-qualified therapists but felt either that their practical tools were lacking or that their demeanour was not assertive enough or too cold. Siobhan’s approach as a therapist was a breath of fresh air and is elite. She has a warm professional demeanour. Over time as I progressed she empowered by guiding me to be introspective and discover solutions to my issues before offering her professional guidance, in this way I now feel self-sufficient and capable. She helped me with my severe depression and anxiety related to chronic pain, overcome my eating disorder and body dysmorphia, process childhood trauma, overcome financial and career stress, break free from unhealthy dysfunctional family behaviour and set healthy relationship boundaries with friends and family. She also gave me the practical tools and advice to deal with significant life change and to accept situations that are out of my control. I strongly encourage you to reach out to her if you are looking for the support of a therapist. Your life will certainly be much better for it! I cannot thank you enough for how much you have shaped my life and helped me find my joy Siobhan.

A genuine help and support at a time in my life when I really needed someone to listen. I spent a year seeing Siobhan and she helped me work through some of the negative thinking and limiting beliefs that were holding me back. I was nervous about seeking therapy for the first time but Siobhan creates a safe, friendly and non judgmental environment. I can't thank her enough for the positive impact she's had on my life. I would highly recommend Siobhan.

I had an incredibly positive experience in my sessions with Siobhan. She was prompt in responding when I first reached out, and I was able to secure an appointment within days. Right from our first meeting, she provided valuable insights and practical suggestions that I could immediately apply. Siobhan's approach is both rigorous and honest, yet she maintains a friendly and humane demeanor. I felt supported and listened to throughout our sessions, she put a spotlight on what was not serving me, encouraged me to make changes and take independent action. She helped me navigate through the challenges I was facing in a way that I felt comfortable with. Investing time and money in sessions with Siobhan has proven to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. Her professional flexibility and depth of knowledge make her an excellent choice for anyone seeking a psychologist. I have full confidence in returning to her in the future should I need it. I highly recommend Siobhan to others.

I had a year and a half of therapy with Siobhan following 20 years of feeling very depressed every winter. The work that she did with me has been transformational, and I feel so much better and more confident about myself. I've had my first winter that I can ever remember where I've felt happy. She helped me understand why I felt like I did, looking right back to my childhood and then gave me the tools to change my thinking about myself. I would recommend her to anyone.

I couldn’t recommend Siobhan more, when I first came to her I was really struggling to live a normal life with my anxiety and emetophobia but I now feel I am in a much better position now to cope. I really appreciated her realistic approach, that these things don’t magically go away and that you need to take time to understand yourself as a person in order to cope better. I know it will always be there but for the first time ever, I have much more confidence that I will be able to cope. Previously with therapy I’d always had quite a formulaic approach to dealing with emetophobia but Siobhans approach was different and looked at it rather as a manifestion of anxiety and to try and treat it at the source. It’s been really life changing working with her!

My sessions with Siobhan have given me back my life; because of the work we did together my world has opened up again. I'm so happy I finally stuck with psychology. It works!

Siobhan has literally been the most important thing to me this past year. Before, I felt lost and mentally was really going through a lot. I was ok and was in need of some serious guidance. Siobhan came through and helped me tremendously. She really helped me truly understand my mind. Helped me find a purpose and understand what my values are. I would 100% recommend using her if you can. Thank you so much Siobhan :)

It found it really useful to work with Siobhan post partum and to work some blended family difficulties I have.

Siobhan is amazing and helped me when I was having one of the most busy and transformative years of my life. I’ve never been able to do mindfulness before but she taught it to me in a way that made sense and she also gave me the tools and confidence to manage difficult situations in a more constructive way.
