client testimonial

“Counselling has been extremely helpful in resolving my problems. Although this was extremely difficult and at times painful, it allowed me to really understand my emotions, their underlying causes and how they were shaping my adult behaviour. Before meeting Isabelle, I was unhappy with myself, ashamed of my differences, unable to openly discuss and deal with my emotions and problems. I’m now confident and happy with the person I am. I have a more meaningful relationships with the people around me because I’m not trying to be someone that I’m not. Overall, my life has changed drastically since receiving counselling from Isabelle.”- AZ

My counselling experience with Isabelle has been positive, productive and worthwhile. I feel better equipped to navigate my feelings as they arise. I also feel it has allowed me to look at the bigger picture, rather than focusing on small stuff or what I’m focused on. I plan to continue on-going coaching with Isabelle. I definitely recommend Isabelle.” – LC

I was feeling disconnected from my partner. Isabelle taught us new ways to communicate with each other when we were feeling angry or upset. We still have disagreements but we’re better able to handle them without either of us shutting down. I felt supported and understood. I liked that Isabelle challenged me and wasn’t afraid to push us to consider things we might not have been willing to discuss on our own.” NR

client's testimonial

My counselling experience with Isabelle has been thorough, caring, thought-provoking and the start of challenging and re-wiring the hard-wired. I’ve become more open, considerate, aware and optimistic, as well as emotionally stronger. I felt challenged and aware. I’m very grateful for Isabelle’s help in finding the doors that need to be found.”  LB

break up

I got out of a negative crisis spin cycle quite quickly, which I certainly wouldn’t have without therapy. I learnt that the failure of marriage doesn’t make you a failure. I feel calmer and more positive about the future, be less hard on myself. It’s been the most useful and insightful therapy I’ve ever had.OL

My counselling experience with Isabelle is challenging in a positive way. She asks me the questions I attempt to run away from. I find her direct approach immensely valuable. Since I’ve had counselling with Isabelle, I have become more self confident and aware of what I can achieve. I now see Isabelle on a monthly basis for professional coaching/mentoring and would recommend Isabelle highly.”  AB

Isabelle was great. We both felt very comfortable with her. She called us on a lot of things I believe others may have let slide and she actively pushed us to explore our relationship further and strengthen it for the years to come. We communicate better and realise our triggers now. When things get difficult we know the tools we have to best address this.JM

testimonial

Counselling has helped improve the quality of our relationship. What I’ve learnt is that: my happiness should come directly from me, not from my partner; holding on to grudges and holding lofty expectations of my partner is detrimental to relationship progress…. Isabelle’s approach is calm and collected. She provided us with simple, well thought out advice passed on in an unbiased manner.”  HM

I really liked working with Isabelle. I really felt as though she understood how I felt and provided good and workable solutions/suggestions to progress our relationship and our feelings. I felt completely supported and I was impressed with how quickly she understood our issues and our personalities…. My husband and I are communicating better. There are fewer arguments and we are less hostile with each other.JB

I actually want to really thank you. Even with just a few sessions you really helped me understand my issues with alcohol. It took me a little while, and I had one or two set backs initially, but then I got into a rhythm and better habits of not drinking before I go out, and alternating drinks with lots of water….  It was hard initially, but once I started, how good I felt in every way really stuck with me 🙂 I so agree with what you said, in once you value yourself and your relationship you become stronger in making the right choices, that has definitely been the case with me, so thank you again for helping me 🙂”   BO

Life is beautiful

There are no words to express how grateful we are to Isabelle for helping our marriage. To put it simply: we wouldn’t still be a family if it weren’t for her counselling. Isabelle provided advice and support, but never forced us to make any decisions about our marriage. She slowly guided us to become more optimistic and affectionate; helped us  forgive each other and start a new chapter in our marriage. We have had 2 other couple counsellors, but we were not able to make progress in our marriage. Isabelle provides a more personal approach and support, we never felt that she was just doing her job. She is passionate about her work and healing.  We really felt that she has a plan of how to help us make progress and the sessions were all very focused and effective.  Couple counselling with Isabelle has been the best investment we have ever had as a family.”   K. and M.

I saw Isabelle with my ex partner in couple counselling because he was threatening and abusive to me. She gave us the tools to change our behaviour, which really helped us. I really enjoyed working with Isabelle. It took me a while to get used to her style but once I did, I really liked it. I felt I could trust her 100% and she was very supportive to me, as I had no family support in Australia. Therapy has definitely changed me, and I understand certain aspects of myself much better now. It also helped me understand my ex partner’s behaviour, and why he was treating me and others the way he did….”  VS
