My counselor (Jennifer) was about “doing the work” and it often felt like she had a plan of attack. Other times when I needed a “vent session” I was able to get things off my chest. This is in contrast to other counsellors I had that didn’t want to work any sort of plan or strategy.
I liked … The opportunity to talk with an impartial person–to work through my own feelings and reach my own understanding about the issues I want to try to deal with.
I liked Jennifer’s friendly, kind approach to my counselling.
The feeling of relief as I head for a session, knowing that it will be a safe place for me to let out my feelings, where I will be heard and understood and supported.
I have so enjoyed Jennifer’s counselling style, the quiet and cosy counselling room, the fact that it is in her home, not in an office, there is a window to the outdoors — all of which make a pleasing environment for me to work on issues.
Jennifer was the perfect fit! It’s a tough process trying to find the right counsellor, finally I met the right person to suit my needs.
Jennifer has an extraordinary holistic approach. She was able to utilize the most beneficial type of therapy with me. Jennifer is authentic, she told me what I “needed” to hear, not what I “wanted” to hear. She is very caring, calming. empathetic and trusting and patient which allowed me to be vulnerable.
I found the EMDR and IFS therapy the most effective form of therapy as of yet. I was able to use tools Jennifer provided during our sessions.
Thank you Jennifer, your quick understanding of what I was going through made the challenges of finding the right words less difficult.
