Seema helped me make sense of things, put a plan in place for me for the next month, we did some CBT worksheets together and I learnt some new ways of managing my anxiety, Definitely helped
a weight was lifted when I started counselling, I have finally started doing something about my problems. Having somebody to talk to made a difference, I was able to express myself, I talked about things that I thought I had resolved but actually hadn't, counselling with seema provided me with a sounding board, I opened up well and also got guidance and learnt new ways of communicating and new skills to manage the problems in my life.
''seema is the best counsellor. I am not just saying it but I didn't expect to open up so much. I felt relaxed and that made me talk about things openly and honestly. I was skeptical but it has really helped me. I think about things alot more, approach things differently and feel better about the choices I make. I liked the fact that I could speak to somebody privately without being judged. Counselling has been brilliant I have really enjoyed it. Thanks Seema''. Dean W
Thank you Seema for always being patient, kind and honest in and out of our sessions which have proved to be a massive help thoughout my life. I can honestly say that your coaching has changed me as a person for the better and will always be grateful for that :)
I had some issues at work, and haven't had counselling before. A friend suggested it. It was after a few sessions that seema made me realise I am unhappy in more then one area. Things started to make sense and I found the courage to start talking to my partner and friends about the things that were happening in my life. It wasn't a quick fix but it made me feel less stressed. My head is clearer. Seema also gave me alot of useful information to take away with me for both me and my family.
I started counselling with seema a few weeks ago. I was nervous and seema made me feel relaxed straight away. I didn't expect to feel this comfortable. I made a joke about not needing any tissues and was shocked that I cried alot actually! As a guy, a tough one at that, I have never talked about the things that I shared with Seema and something just felt a bit different for me. I cant wait to have more sessions and see what the outcome for me will be.
What a relief just to find somebody to talk to about things I have kept quiet about for years.something definitely changed for me, I worked with seema for 8 months and it was very useful
I met a few counsellors and didn't click with anybody, when I met seema I felt a connection, she was warm, calming and helped me to relax, we had a lot of sessions and things have really improved for me in my life. I feel more confident and less scared of the things I face in life.
Seema applies a thoughtful and sensitive approach where you feel confident and reassured. There is the feeling she is with you on your journey, and subsequently you don't feel so alone sitting in  'the chair'.
I found Seema to be a very professional and approachable counsellor. From the first telephone conversation we had, she genuinely took interest in my problems, gave me her time and guided me into counselling. She made me feel totally comfortable and I received a high level of support and guidance at a time when I was feeling lost and alone. We worked through my issues and I now feel that my life has direction and a meaning to it. Thank you so much Seema. You really helped me when I didn't know where to turn.
I have been having counselling for one year now, I notice in my day to day life that I feel more assertive, less insecure, I have firmer boundaries, and am more aware of my actions. I am building a stronger relationship with myself and learning more about what I want and don't want. This is enabling me to put goals into practice, have direction and let go of things I no longer want in my life and to embrace the things I feel passionate about.
Having had counselling previously I knew what what it was about, I was pleased that my expectations were met. I found seema's dedication and attention to our sessions so meaningful. I have come out of my shell more, I go out more now and have started making more friends as well as facing some difficult situations in my life. Very grateful
I was apprehensive when looking for a counsellor and Seema took her time having a chat with me on the phone before coming for my first session. I was put at ease and as time went by my confidence grew in other areas. I have started finding my voice and am thankful to Seema for her support
Warm, caring and generous, I found a beautiful counsellor. Seema is giving of her time, emotions and energy and she helped me look at myself and my life in a different way. My relationships have started changing now and I feel so much calmer in my life...
Seema made me feel welcome and was easy to talk to. We looked at things from both a practical and emotional point. Finding a great counsellor has made such a difference in my life! Thank you Seema
