Aleksandra, 37 from Milton Keynes, gave a review after 3 sessions

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Ability to listen and always offers guidance to every situation. Gives very professional advice. The important thing for me was the fact that Ilse asked a lot about the past trying to find out all background information. This way I was able to share things with her and talk about reasons for my anxiety. Ilse was able to name things which helped me understand what it is that I suffer from."

"Ilse is very good at picking up on what is not being said but is obviously a problem. She then draws it out of you and it can be discussed at a level you are ready for. I do find the sessions definitely a lot of help. I will continue seeing Ilse for a while yet."
