Testimonials

I wanted to express my gratitude to Janet for her counselling and tools that she provided for me in counselling enabling me to get the healing I needed. She supported me with grounding techniques and how to refresh my mind and to recognise my own first aid toolkit. The Toolkit is a must-have skill for you. Other strategies such as handling the stages of grief served as a method of me confidently expressing my emotions.

I learned how to set boundaries and therefore in valuing the people I love and to deal with relationships better. Together, we looked at writing letters to self which was such an eye-opener of learning about my subconscious thinking. I never felt pushed in the meetings and yet I experienced that she really was interested in working together for good.

I am now able to take matters into my own hands now and resolve issues, regulating my own emotions and functioning reflectively as an adult. And with both having a faith we allowed prayer to cement the heart of our Christian relationship with God.

Coming to counselling has been a breathe of fresh air and a needed episode in my life. At a time when facing many personal challenges and feeling stuck, finding Janet was a God-send.

I spent a year in counselling and although the travelling distance presented its challenges I’m so glad I took the time to look after myself and create some space for much needed emotional healing.

I always felt very safe and very welcomed in the counselling room. I was able to relax and be myself. Her warmth and openness played a major role in our connecting and my ability to remain hopeful about the sessions.

Janet was so in tune with and sensitive to my vulnerabilities often bringing strength through her acceptance of me and her encouragement, coupled with her gentle sense of humour. I would 100% recommend Janet for counselling. It was time and money well spent.

I decided to get some counselling after yet another rejection from a Christian guy propelled me into the arms of someone I knew wasn’t good for me; I was sick of being single! Janet helped me by challenging my thinking and attitude towards dating, helping to restore my self-worth, validating my feelings and giving me the tools I needed to date men and have a successful relationship.

Soon after I finished my counselling sessions I made the decision to go on dates. The first person I met turned out to be my husband-to-be! It was a God thing, a divine appointment if you like, but only because I was ready to pursue it. If I hadn’t have done the counselling beforehand and learned from Janet and the authors she introduced me to, we probably wouldn’t be together – I would have missed my opportunity.

I encourage any single girl who wants to be married to explore Janet’s effect dating strategies – it worked for me!
