Client Testimonials

"I came to Angelo after reaching a crisis point in my life. I have had 9 months of therapy with him and he's changed the way I feel about something that I couldn't deal with for years. Angelo is warm, empathic and if things got tricky he knew how to push me in just the right way. Therapy with him has been a transformative experience and I can't recommend it highly enough."

"I’ve been going to therapy to manage anxiety. Therapy can be vulnerable as opening up has always been difficult for me. Angelo was patient and gave me space to speak when I felt comfortable. He's a great listener and helped me unpack and deconstruct my 'neuroses'. He doesn't probe either, he asks for clarification to organise anxious feelings into words. Angelo advised practical techniques that helped me understand that my grievances were actually a small part of a much larger, positive whole. I leave sessions feeling motivated and better equipped to cope with anxiety. "

"I was a little apprehensive about trying therapy at first, but Angelo provided a safe environment where I could talk about what was on my mind. He helped me to get a better understanding of myself and how to respond in difficult situations. I would recommend his service to others considering therapy.

"When I started this therapy process, I came with the idea I needed help with my anxiety. As the process went on, we explored other challenges from my past and how they have impacted my life. There have been huge impacts on my life that I didn’t know existed, such as my self-esteem. If I was to name, in one sentence, the biggest thing I’ve taken away, it is that I genuinely value and like myself a lot moreWhen we started the process, Angelo had a phone conversation with me and he stated how important it was for both of us to feel comfortable. At the start, during, and at the end of this process, Angelo emphasised how it is a collaboration. How it is WE who work together. This isn’t just nice words or 'therapy speak'; my experience with Angelo has truly felt like we have worked together. The more I have put into this process the more I feel I have certainly got out. The image I present externally to the world is finally how I feel internally. I’ve always been very good at emitting this calm, cool, collected image; internally I was facing my internal anxious battle. Today, in general, my anxious moments are extremely rare and make very little impact on my life. If I ever felt I needed therapy again in the future, I would not hesitate to contact Angelo."

"Angelo has been brilliant to work with. His style helped me to form my own conclusions and focus to come up with solutions to the situations I was finding myself in. I suffered from anxiety, lack of self-reassurance, self-doubt, which resulted in some angry responses to frustrations. For a variety of reasons, it affected my current relationship, my work and stopped me from living the life I want to live. It took time, but Angelo helped identify the triggers in my behavioural patterns, made me question whether I was reacting in the way that I wanted to, and guided me to subtly making changes in my reactions. He did this in part by explaining the psychology, in part connecting the dots that we'd discussed, and providing a receptive, listening ear. In some instances, he related ideas back to the workplace and techniques that I knew, understood, and were ‘safe to me’, where he saw that I was more comfortable with my behaviour. Angelo, you have made a real difference to how I respond in these situations! I still have those triggers, but I'm more self-aware and better equipped to handle them in the way I want. Thank you."
