Working with Toni has been absolutely massive for me and my recovery.
I suffer from OCD and have done for around 10 years. Day to day life became very difficult, being unable to focus on anything other than my OCD. This has been an ongoing battle for me, receiving therapy over the years to help try and battle this condition.
I relapsed in November 2020, starting my sessions with Toni in January 2021.
I can honestly say, the professional and personal support Toni has provided has been crucial to my recovery. The in depth knowledge of appropriate strategies to use to help aid my condition has been amazing. My journey to recovery has been a steady process, that Toni has been central to. I found it incredibly easy to be open and honest with Toni, regarding my condition and how my weeks had been in between sessions. Toni is the best therapist I have seen, the level of care and attention to detail has been huge for me. I cannot recommend Toni enough.
My sessions have also been via Skype, I was initially worried that I would not feel the personal impact of the sessions. This was due to me receiving face to face treatment in the past. Toni completely eased these fears from the off after my first session, as I felt completely at ease and felt it very easy to build a rapport with her even via video link. At no point did I feel like I was speaking to a stranger.
Toni has a natural enthusiasm and passion to want to help people who are in need of help, this has always been apparent during every session I have had. The support outside of my sessions through the use of home work has also played a key role in my recovery. This has allowed me to regularly use my strategies outside of sessions and get used to independently using them to help bring calm when I am in a state of crisis.
Toni has also changed the way in interpret my own thoughts, challenging them in a more positive manner, opposed to being negative and fearing the worst.
I cannot thank Toni enough for all the help she has provided me, I would never have reached this point in my recovery without her.

Toni has helped me no end, teaching me to handle my emotions appropriately, as well as giving me the tools in order to handle future situations that may occur. I feel and cope so much better than I ever have and miss our chats already! If I ever get to the point where I need some help again, Toni will be the first person I will contact. Thanks for everything, I honestly appreciate it.

Toni is first class..very approachable and takes away the fear of asking for help and taking what was for me a giant step in asking a stranger for help. I have had many sessions with Toni and she has given me many self help techniques however I know I can contact her at anytime.if needed.

I’m so glad that I reached out for a therapist and found Toni. She helped me reduce my anxiety and depression and transition into a new job and was so easy to talk to. I would recommend her very highly.

Toni has helped me go through possibly one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through in life. I feel so much better now and have acquired healthier habits to cope. She’s taught me how to stop and analyse certain situations and to let go of things I can’t control. I’ve also enjoyed our sessions as she made me feel like I was talking to someone I can trust with zero judgements. I feel so much happier now and so much more in control of my life. Thanks Toni!!

Toni provided me the support and the help I deeply needed. Thanks to her, I am now a better person, and I feel a lot less anxious about my problems. Going through therapy with her helped me to fix ongoing issues in my life that I had no clue how to solve. It was incredibly relieving to know that I had someone so trust-worthy and non-judgemental to talk to. She always came up with well spotted advices and listened to everything I had to say. I couldn’t recommend her more; she is a great therapist and you can trust her to help you feeling better.

Toni is a breath of fresh air. Very insightful, down to earth, full of energy, with the ability to guide you through a very challenging situation with subtly and compassion. I’d highly recommend her services. She made a big difference to my life. And I’m sure she would to yours too.

Toni has been incredible, it was as easy as talking to a dear friend. The exercises given to me have helped tremendously and I can’t thank her enough. 🙂

I found Toni through Anxiety UK, and am so very glad I did! I have under gone counselling before through my local IAPT team, but started to ‘fall back off the rails’ and needed some guidance to find my feet and solutions to overcome my work based anxiety. Toni was fantastic, and helped me to put logic behind my thinking, and develop solutions to address my over thinking and panicking. I still use these methods in my day to day life, and find myself stopping, thinking how Toni would recommend I approach the situation that’s making me anxious, and then start a zig zag form mentally, to find more logical thoughs and conclusions. The world is a very different place to the last time I spoke with Toni, but she has given me the tools to be able to approach it logically, and I know she is still there if I have a bit of a wobble! Warm, friendly, and knowledgeable, everything you need to get you back onto the right track again

I have been seeing Toni for a short amount of time after feeling really low and needing someone to talk to. I have found that in the months’ worth of sessions I have had with her, I already feel so much more positive and less anxious. She has been really supportive during a difficult time in my life and I feel I have come out a better, happier person for it. I know that despite the fact I didn’t have that many sessions, I can go back and see Toni if I feel it is necessary in the future. Couldn’t recommend enough as its lovely to have someone so non-judgemental to talk to when you do not feel yourself.

I’ve been seeing Toni regularly for a couple of months and she has really helped me to change the way my brain works in regards to not only my outlook on life but in every day tasks.
I really struggled with simple things when it came to my mental health but in a small amount of time her positivity and encouragement has helped me to progress and grow in so many ways I was beginning to think were impossible.
I always thought seeking help would be a scary experience but her friendly, non-judgemental manner has made the process almost easy and I look forward to our sessions each week.
I cannot recommend her enough and would easily advise anyone who needs it to seek her help and be free of any worries or woes!

There is one word which covers off Toni perfectly and that is ENTHUSIASTIC which rubs off on me and gets me encouraged to pursue training / coaching for myself plus my team.

Hello Toni

First, I have really enjoyed our coaching sessions. I always come away with a ton of ideas and action items. I don’t have any”areas to improve” but I can say that the format in which you have approached our calls has been very effective for me. In particular, helping me help myself while still gaining an understanding of my current situation and relating it back to your experience. The probing questions you asked helped me suss out the items that are a priority and what the next step is that I can take.

Overall, it has been a great experience receiving coaching from you.

Dear Toni Thank you so much for your help in coach session. It’s very helpful and really hope we can enjoy a long coach journey. What I am thinking is that during the 1 hour coaching, we can divide it into two parts. One part is for me, which means I will have some problems for work and ask for your help or suggestion. In another part, could you please give more suggestion or teach me something about communication skills with manager, among team or external, tips to deal with different work, and how to performance well? Because I think this is very helpful and useful to me to improve myself in the work and career. I will be very appreciate to learn. Many Thanks.

“When I think of Toni, positivity, enthusiasm and compassion spring to mind.  I’ve known Toni for many years and feel she has always been so supportive so to now be counselling and coaching, she has found her forte.  In just a few weeks, I am so impressed that she has taught me the right techniques to change my outlook on life and made such a difference to my behaviours.  Toni really is thought provoking and the most non-judgemental, positive person I have had the pleasure to know.  I thoroughly recommend coaching or counselling or both services with Toni as it will improve your life.”
