She was very calm and supportive during my sessions. She is a very good listener and was very patient when I told her my issues and stories. She was perfect for me as I talk a lot and she listened well. She gave great feedback and suggestions which have helped me a lot
I am now much better at managing my stress levels and more able to deal with relationships
I never thought that therapy could help me change my life so much! I was Very lucky to have met Gabriela.
Dr Gabriela has helped me to better understand my problems and move forward in life. I am happy to have engaged in therapy ☺️( it requires time and patience)
Thank you for your help so far. It has made a tangible difference to my quality of life.
Gabriela was fantastic to work with. Over the 18 months I grew a lot, in ways both expected and unexpected. She was able to explain things to be in a highly accessible way and provide lots of practical tips. She was always attentive and made an effort to get to know me as evidenced by the fact she would often raise things which I had brought up in previous sessions. I got the feeling she understood me as a person. I always felt comfortable opening up, never feeling judged, yet was challenged where necessary. Would highly recommend.
Dr Van Den Hoven has been helping me for a year to overcome my depression, anxiety and general feeling of helplessness. After a year, I feel like I am a different person - my confidence and positivity have come back and I feel much happier!
Thank you so much for your guidance, wisdom and therapeutic skills. You have played a big part in my recovery and I have learnt a lot from you; skills and suggestions that I can utilise for the rest of my life. Marie
