We understand how difficult it is to make the decision to make the first step towards therapy. We thought there is no better voice than the consumer voice so we have asked some our clients to give some feedback to give you a better idea of how we practice.
"Shelley Murphy has the personality and experience that make her an exceptional counsellor, add to that a high level of qualification and (my personal favourite) the fact that she has done/is doing her own inner work, and you've got yourself a mighty yet gentle ally and resource. Shelley also has a fantastic sense of humour which is often the 'spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down'.
Shelley and partner Brendon have also looked at each aspect of the way their business is run, and have made sure that in every way it is geared towards the needs of the client. This is so rare, and to me indicates that for them, the central value and driving force of their practice is a strong and genuine aim to provide the best possible assistance to each individual client.
All in all, I can't recommend Shelley highly enough, and believe me, I'm VERY fussy when it comes to this sort of thing!" AF
"Shelley has a real gift for counselling. After experiencing huge trauma in my life I turned to counselling from a local service recomended by my doctor. The service helped but I was really only keeping my head above water. Then I switched to Shelley and experienced HUGE shifts. Shelley is highly qualified and very professional but it's her gift for getting to the heart of the issue and ALWAYS knowing where to go with it that makes her absolutely outstanding. She is very intuitive and applies this gift to her work to the benefit of her clients. She is warm, caring, patient and genuine and has a great sense of humour, bringing much needed lightness to issues, while at the same time bringing helpful insight and guidance. Shelley is unique and I consider it a huge blessing to have worked with her. I can't imagine where I'd be now without her excellent service." AH
"My anxiety had me housebound for a long time. I didn't want to drive, I didn't like meeting new people and i wasn't able to live my life to it's full potential. My kids kids suffered with their mum living a life of fear. After hours of therapy with Shelley, I've now taken on a job that requires me to drive and talk to new people. I can do group meetings!
My kids are no longer disappointed having to stay home all the time and we can go places. I've been taught wonderful skills on how to keep my anxiety away. I'm forever grateful for Shelley's skills and patience with me." CV
"Shelley has taught me tools to which I apply in my everyday life. I feel safe around Shelley and find communicating with her so effortlessly. The way I view certain situations in my life now has expanded thanks to Shelley and I no longer feel I am constricted by choices or a way of thinking. Shelley has guided me to inner freedom and I can not thank her enough." SV
