I am a taxi driver, in September 2013 I was involved in a serious car accident and thereafter I was left feeling extremely nervous and fearful about doing my job. This caused Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. So on the advice of my solicitor I was referred to Suzanne Adey for counselling. At first I felt a bit apprehensive, but after a couple of minutes Suzanne's caring nature made me feel totally relaxed. I had anxiety issues, trouble sleeping and relaxing. After eight sessions with Suzanne she has helped me to unburden myself and to understand the way I was feeling. Each session was an hour long but I could have stayed for two. Now I feel refreshed and confident. Thank you Suzanne.
Andy Devers (age 52).
I started counselling with Suzanne in March 2013. I was at a point when I had tried everything, spiritual work, daily meditation, energy work, reading every self help book I could find but I felt suicidal, numb and worn out. I had anti-depressants in my bag but I did not want to take them. I was then given the wonderful opportunity of working with Suzanne, I have not looked back. Suzanne listened and really heard me. She is compassionate, kind, funny and wise (a killer combination in my opinion) and I was able to feel safe very quickly. As I am a person who wants to find practical solutions to any problem, Suzanne was able to give me great tools to work with independently on the days between sessions. As my spiritual practice is central to my life, having a counsellor who understands this was invaluable. I feel most fortunate to have had Suzanne as my counsellor and feel great gratitude every day for the help I have been given. Female client (age 50) after 16 appointments of counselling.
Dear Suzanne, it seems your Reiki Healing helped me loads. I feel really relaxed and okay. I can hardly believe it as I was scepticle about it, but I think it's really worked. Anne (age 75).
After ten appointments with Suzanne I feel that my life is transformed. Not only did she teach me how my mind creates all of my problems, but she also taught me how to change my perceptions of life events and of myself. Consequently, I feel much happier and more free than I've ever felt. I would highly recommend the ten week course as I felt that she prioritized me as a client and pulled out all the stops to get me to a better place.
Lisa (age 26).
I was having a lot of problems at uni and feeling socially out of the loop. Now I feel much more connected to the people around me, both in uni and at home. I'm no longer lost at sea and feel much more confident. She is a lovely person and I would recommend her to anyone.
Jenny (age 21).
Suzanne helped me to find myself and my freedom in the world. I am no longer intimidated by what other people think about me. I'm more concerned with what I think of myself. I changed my job and expanded my horizons in different ways. I am very grateful for all that she did.
