    Explanation

    Dr Pilkington has changed my life. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember and have seen a range of health professionals and been on multiple medicines. I have now finally found someone who is able to help manage my disease. She is so easy to speak to and there is never any pressure to book more sessions. I see her as often as I need to and always feel better and back on track. I can't thank her enough for how strong I feel within myself. When I started going to her I was so ready to just give up on any type of councilling but she has put everything into perspective and helped me with some of the most overwhelming points of my anxiety. Not only is my general well-being and mental health much better, she has also provided me with the tools to spot when I am starting to struggle and help myself from getting any worse. Absolutely recommend anyone who needs help to seek out Dr Pilkington. It might change your life too.

    Extremely grateful for Dr Pilkington in helping me understand why I feel low at times, the guidance and advice in navigating through life’s challenges and aiding my recovery. For the first time I feel like I’m making progress as I feel able to talk about my experiences safely. Her professionalism and kindness makes this process effortless. Would highly recommend as her experience and knowledge is evident in her conduct and in the results I have see so far.
