"Guy is warm and engaging without being too intense; I felt very comfortable with him and he put me at ease almost immediately. He is inquisitive but not intrusive; he listens carefully without interrupting and checks his understanding by feeding back to ensure he has not misinterpreted what he has heard and he is incredibly insightful. He is empathetic and non-judgmental and manages to strike the right balance between impartiality and compassion. He enabled me to understand the root of the issues I had brought to him. He offered me techniques for coping with anxiety and was effective in helping me to worth through my problems without trying to tell me what to do or think."

"I have worked with many therapists from various schools over the years and Guy is one of the best I have worked with. Not only is Guy very warm and easy to talk to, he is adept at enablling you to identify, allow and explore multiple emotions and perspectives on specific personal relationships and issues. I feel empowered after a therapy session with Guy and I am able to see issues with greater clarity, a tribute to Guy’s skill as a therapist. Highly recommended, money very well spent."

"Guy is non-judgemental, and a great listener, and is very empathetic. He helped me work through the challenges I faced as my marriage broke down enabling me to make the right decisions for me and my son. I am in a good place now, and his help was invaluable. Would highly recommend Guy. His understanding of relationship breakdowns is impressive and especially how to put your children first."

"Guy is just so easy to talk to, but he doesn't push the conversation. Made us both feel at ease from the start, and by the end of just a few sessions, he made us feel like it was just a casual chat...but it was so helpful."
