I have let go of the anger I used to hold towards my father. I am more appreciate of other facets of my life and am able to focus on other positives when one particular area may not be going as planned. I have gained confidence through the changes I have been able to make.

I am more able to reason with my own thoughts and try and prevent catastrophising and the thoughts escalating as they used to.

I am more patient with myself and others. I am able to reason through other people’s behaviour and my own better. I lose my temper less frequently, although it still happens. I am however able to identify when this is happening and often stop it from happening.

I really enjoyed our sessions and the help you provided for me. I appreciated your honesty and the way it was delivered. There was never any judgment of me, despite some of the ridiculous things I often said! You helped me make some significant changes and guided me along the way without imposing your thoughts/ideas/beliefs on me. I felt relaxed and comfortable during the sessions…thanks!

I’m capable of living on my own and enjoying it. That’s not to say I don’t get lonely at times. I’m strong and proud of how I’ve handled it all. At the beginning having the divorce paper in my hand would be the worst thing, but that’s trivial. I welcomed it in the end! I never thought this would happen to us in a million years.

I do put myself first more now. I remind myself to stop trying to mend others live and let them take care of themselves. I am also open to learning and trying new things.

I couldn’t have got through the last year or more without you. I feel fortunate that I was send in your direction. You got me through a very difficult journey. Its been a very positive experience in the end. I’ve learned a lot about myself.

Alex was my executive coach and she assisted me to work my way through complex relationships at work. Alex showed me how to remain comfortable and in control of my emotions when I was anxious. She opened me up to a world of awareness about others and myself. Alex’s impact during our coaching sessions was great. She helped me strip away the complexity and take things back to basics, which enabled me to work through one step at a time and not be overwhelmed by everything at the same time. Alex helped me to see the things I could not see myself and was the perfect sounding board. I was able to easily connect with her and always felt very comfortable with her. I felt an immediate bond with Alex, which enabled some extremely productive sessions. Since working with Alex, I have found myself to be more relaxed and less likely to be triggered by other people. I have identified a whole new toolkit of things I can do to manage my own as well as other people‟s reactions to difficult circumstances.

I found Alex to be positive, honest and really listened. She waited for me to come to my own conclusions. I found Alex to be accepting and non-judgemental of decisions I had made. I had been feeling overwhelmed by events and found her approach helped me to be confident in my decisions.

I am now able to break down my concerns into bite sized chunks and deal with them one at a time and feel much happier in so doing. Before counselling I felt confused, unhappy and at a loss on how to get through the maize that was my life. I now have independence of thought. I do not now always agree to all that is asked of me – if I feel it is not in my best interest. I have lost guilt in saying “no” occasionally. I enjoy taking responsibility for my actions and I feel a whole lot happier.

I felt Alex was there for me and helped me to see my actions and those of others in a different and usually more positive perspective.

Thank you so much Alex for helping through a very difficult period in my life. I am so glad that I met you as without your guidance I don’t know how I would have handled the mess that I was in and couldn’t see myself getting out of. I feel happy and at peace with the decisions I have put in place and feel I couldn‟t have done this without your help.

Many, many thanks.

After counselling with Alex I feel more confident and assertive. I have clarity. Alex guided me to make my own decisions and I feel great in the direction I am now heading. I take responsibility for my actions and feel in control of my life. I got a tremendous amount from our counselling sessions. I feel much stronger as a person. What do you say when counselling gives you your life back!!

I concentrate on the future. I acknowledge the past however it doesn’t control me and define who I now am. I have put the past behind me. I am now a quietly confident individual in all aspects of my life and I am proud of my achievements and who I now am. I will miss you Alex tremendously as you helped me work through my issues. However I know I am now capable of standing on my own.

Thank you.

I have known Alex Roberts for many years, first as a business contact and then as a good friend. Alex is forthright, loyal and very honest. As a friend, and a listener, Alex is a tower of strength and has often provided me with a light at the end of the tunnel. Her strength is being able to hold your hand instead of carrying you, and to walk alongside you down the right path of thinking, as opposed to taking short cuts.

She helps you find solutions to problems yourself rather than to hand you the answers on a plate and when, on occasion, you happen to have a painful revelation, she is there to provide warmth and understanding to help you move beyond it. Alex has integrity – if she says she will do something, she does it with 100% effort, 100% of the time and it is just one of the many reasons why I trust her implicitly.
