Please have a look to see if you think I can help you.
Counselling has given me a better understanding and I am less anxious as well as more happy and content. I am very thankful.Summer
Before I came to see Marijke I found myself in a dark and despairing period of my life. With our talks together and her guidance I have now moved far away from this place. Also, not only has she guided me within our sessions together but has directed and shown me how I can help myself and find my happiness!Paul
Needless to say I am very satisfied with all the work you have done with me.
I was in a very dark place 6 months ago – my life was filled with constant anxiety, worry, nervousness and depression and i really couldn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I found it very easy to open up to you, you were non judgemental and i had no fear of telling you things which I hadn’t shared with anyone before.
Bit by bit you have helped me iron out and put to rest a number of issues which had overpowered my life for the last 15 years. I didn’t think that I deserved to be happy and I really had given in to the idea that the rest of my life was going to be filled with problems, fuelled by drugs – with nothing to look forward too.
You have helped me change the way that I think – I needed to make changes in my life – so many changes that it was all very overwhelming for me and I really didn’t know where to start.
I am a much more optimistic person now and can very much see the positive things happening around me as well as accept that negative things that may arise in the future.
Finally I feel like I have moved on with my life and am no longer controlled by negative emotions from past experiences.
You have had an extremely positive influence on my life – my relationships with family and friends have improved dramatically, I am putting myself out there more and know that by doing this my life will be more enriched.
Thank you Marijke – I am feeling really optimistic for the future, I no longer can use the excuse of things that have happened in my life as a reason to use substances. I am looking forward to a life now which is free from substances, worry, anxiety and depression. Happy Days.
It’s great to know i can come back to you in the future should I feel the need and I will absolutely stay in touch and let you know how things progress for me. I now have 2 holidays to look forward too =)
I really do highly recommend your work and will certainly pass your details on.
I found Marijke to be warm and welcoming. It helped me immensely to have someone independent and non-judgemental to talk to. She quickly understood the source of my anxiety and helped me accept the things I couldn’t change and realise the things I could, giving me the confidence back in myself and my own abilities to deal with what life throws at me.Nicky
Mrs Roberts is an amazing therapist who helped me overcome my personal issues of self-doubt within weeks of beginning therapy.H
With the tools you have given me I feel that I will be able to cope better, and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you for listening and not judging. Thank you for making me feel I have a voice, and for helping me use it in the right way, so that I am understood. Thank you for helping me to be the best person I can be, true to myself.
Marijke is a warm, friendly therapist, her integrative approach means that the treatment you receive is centred around what the individual client needs rather than ‘one size fits all’ styles of therapy, which I had tried in the past. When I came to Marijke I was incredibly depressed, lost and very unconfident that anyone could help me get out of my rut, but thanks to Marijke’s and my hard work, I have managed to unlock many deeply ingrained beliefs that I have held since childhood. Marijke’s process of therapy has made such a huge difference to my perspective and I feel so much happier in the long-term.
I have found the whole process extremely rewarding and beneficial. I would certainly recommend both counselling and this specific counsellor to anyone who is unsure or who was/is in a similar position to me.
Whilst I’m not fully free of anxiety (and didn’t expect to be) I do now feel like I have the tools to cope and rationalise the anxiety. My journey has been a gradual improvement, sometimes a few steps back, sometimes a few steps forward but overall it’s been an upward trend towards feeling much more positive about everything.
I went into the process not expecting anything to dramatically change overnight but to have someone to talk to who is independent from my issues and who can challenge me to think differently and to approach the problems from different angles.
Overall the process was very positive and whilst I’m not 100% just yet, I am more confident in dealing with the problems in future.
I am very glad I went to see Marijke she has helped me enormously. It was a relief just being able to tell someone what I was going through. Her therapy sessions helped me to unlock the reasons why I was feeling this way and to work towards breaking the cycle of sadness. Thank you for listening to me.
Marijke provided a safe, non-judgemental and friendly space to talk through my issues. Her style is compassionate but also challenging when it needs to be, to help you work through the stuff you need in a supportive way.
I had not been for counselling before. During the first session I shared with Marijke the abuse that I suffered as a child, something that I had kept to myself for many years. I was nervous at the first session, but Marijke listened and supported me as I spoke, and was sympathetic and calm which made me feel completely at ease. After each session I had much to reflect on during the week, as Marijke suggested new ways of thinking and how I could move forward in my healing process. Some of the best things that have come out of the sessions are: – I am more open to sharing my thoughts with others; more grounded and connected with my family and friends, a weight has been lifted because I no longer carry a secret with me; I am being more mindful of others; I understand that the abuse that happened to me does not define me; thinking about the abuse and the abuser has lessened; I feel empowered.
