Vanessa helped me massively with what I needed. She is very open minded and gave me excellent advice and guidance. I was lost in my mind when I first attended but after 6 months I now feel more focus and feel much better in myself. I also now have the skills and mind to look at situations with more clarity. Vanessa is extremely professional and creates a warm and caring atmosphere. I would recommend her highly to anyone. Thank you Vanessa

I have been seeing Vanessa now for roughly two months and I have learned so much. She is a great listener and is helping me work through my problems and areas in life I want to improve on. I have a new found clarity that is growing each day. She is very prompt with all timings and goes above and beyond to make sure all elements of her practice are of a high standard.

I initially had my reservations when my wife suggested couples therapy. I'm so glad that I went against my reservations, as having a place to express my thoughts with a highly professional and insightful person has made it easier to have difficult conversations with my wife. Thanks Vanessa

I have had a very positive experience with Vanessa, she has helped me so much during the course of my studies and at some points I think I would have felt lost without her. She always made sure that I could use our sessions however I best needed, sometimes it was helping me plan and schedule my work, or fill out my extenuating circumstances form, and other times just chatting when I needed support. I very much appreciated this.

From my very first session with Vanessa I instantly found that she was thoughtful, caring and friendly. She was non judge mental and compassionate. My sessions were incredibly helpful as she gave me insights and practical suggestions which gave me the skills to go it alone. My time with her was invaluable.

Vanessa has been an incredible source of help, encouragement and comfort. Her service is reliable, friendly (though professional) and generous. Her maturity and insight have helped me to adjust to changes in my life and improved my self-awareness. We have now been working together for 3 years and I am so grateful that I found her and that our working relationship has proven so enriching.

My counselling experience with Vanessa Aggrey has been a wholly positive one. I would also say a creative one, with an environment that encouraged growth in self-expression, perception of myself and in others. I noticed the difference in myself very soon after our sessions began – and so did others.
