“It was so great to be able to work with Juandri. I felt so seen and heard. I didn't really understand what had been going on for me and she really helped me in reflecting on my situation and experiences. I am still seeing her, however it feels like our time together has developed from therapy to coaching. She has been great at working around my schedules and adjusting to what I need. I see her once a month now and still find these sessions really useful and fulfilling. “

Explanation (5/5)
I found Juandri after two failed attempts with other mental health professionals. I'm the typical 'English bloke' who laughed things off, while actually bottling them up, hiding from the truth and all the time damaging myself even more. I was at an absolute low in my life when I started my sessions with Juandri 'I was broken'. I'd found it impossible to be honest about my thoughts and feelings with anyone else; however, I'd found someone I could bear my soul too, not straight away, but over time. Juandri probed without being overbearing, she allowed me to answer my own questions, most of the time I didn't realise I had until weeks after. She gave me the skills to manage my fears and anxieties. A year ago I would not have been able to write this, I'd have been far too emotional nothing wrong with being emotional by the way, Juandri has shown me its a strength, not a weakness. Before I started this journey I would not have believed, one I could allow myself to get as low as I did and two that engaging with a mental health professional like Juandri would benefit me as much as it has. I'd like to thank Juandri for guiding me through the toughest journey of my life. I owe you more than you'll ever know! Yours, Typical English Bloke 😊

I had never had therapy before and was not in a good place when I first spoke with her, Dr Buitendag explained the process clearly and managed my expectations as to how hard the therapy would be and that there are no 'quick fixes' . She helped me to understand the root causes of my anxiety and depression and how to recognise and deal with then in a health, positive way.

Therapy with Juandri was such a transformative, invaluable and, at times, difficult process. I can honestly say it changed the way I see things. WIth Juandri, I was able to work through some traumatic experiences that I'd hidden away for a long time. I was also able to change some destructive behaviours, spot triggers and learn to sit with my pain, which I didn't think I'd every be able to do. Juandri is patient, non-judgemental and supportive. She was able to offer support while teaching me how support myself. I really looked forward to my sessions and during the difficult times, really relied on them.

I always looked forward to my sessions with Juandri as each week I came away with a clearer understanding of my own thought processes and triggers. Juandri's calm manner meant that even over zoom she was able to create a relaxed environment. I am also thankful for the tasks that I was given each week as I have continued to use these.

I had a positive experience with Juandri and would definitely recommend her to others. Her explanations are very helpful and I realised certain things about myself that I hadn't seen before. Like with any therapy, the majority of the work has to come from the patient - don't expect results overnight - but Juandri is skilful at identifying areas of improvement and introduces helpful ideas/actions to facilitate progress. She is empathetic and kind, and creates a very safe environment to express any thoughts and concerns. Based on my experience with other therapists, she has been the best so far.

It's hard to even put into words how much Juandri has helped me. I had wanted to see a therapist for so many years and then last summer something happened and I knew it was time. I was apprehensive as I thought (knowing my luck) it would take a while to find the right person for me but I couldn't have got it more spot on. I emailed in the evening and received a response the next morning followed very shortly by a consultation. It doesn't feel an exaggeration to say Juandri has changed my life. The therapy has helped me in a multifaceted way and not only allows me to cope with every situation I face but I'm also able to help the people around me with the tools she's provided. I can tell that she has such depth of knowledge in so many areas of psychology and is frequently providing extra tasks or reading which has always helped a great deal. I always know no matter how much is happening or how overwhelmed or upset I am before or during a session I always finish feeling so calm, clear and positive.

I highly recommend Juandri Buitendag. I have worked with many psychologists over the years but it wasn't until I found her that I was really able to work through my issues, heal and move on. She was able to elucidate so much for me. She gave me many lightbulb moments. She is extremely insightful, and recognised the problems I was facing and strategies to help my specific concerns immediately. She is honest and also approached my therapy with an extremely nurturing, empathetic and non-judgmental attitude. I am extremely grateful that I had her support through a difficult time and I will go back to her without hesitation if I ever need support again.

I knew I would benefit from therapy for a number of years but was always very hesitant at the idea of it. However, I'm so grateful I came across Juandri who from the initial call was calm, kind and professional. I'm a very reserved person but Juandri made me feel comfortable discussing sensitive topics and gave great professional insight. I am now equipped with a toolbox to help me navigate life's challenges and perhaps most importantly one's internal challenges. I would not hesitate to recommend Juandri to anyone, when I first went to Juandri I felt broken but have finished therapy feeling peaceful and calm within.
