Genevieve is awesome. I genuinely look forward to our sessions each week. I love how counselling is fun with her, it’s like an adventure of discovery rather than something scary or painful, and that in itself has given me confidence and courage that I don’t have to be scared of myself :) She brings a beautiful warmth and sense of lightness to our work that allows me to find the joy in all the mess and confusion of life. When I’m down she reminds me how to be kind to myself and get back up. And when I’m up we work on developing understanding, how to live intentionally and with compassion, and creating that all-important connection – to myself and others and the world around me. It’s simultaneously grounding and uplifting, which I love because counselling can feel like a trade-off between making yourself feel better and exploring some hard truths. Somehow Genevieve magically makes both happen AND I walk away afterwards feeling like I’ve learned a million things and moved another little bit forward towards where I want to be. I really like how she makes authenticity and connection a core principle of her approach; it’s not something I would have thought to focus on before but it’s probably the thing that has made such a huge and fundamental difference in my life over the past year, and Genevieve is like a Jedi Master at it :) Her wisdom, compassion and sparkle are both a comfort and an inspiration to me and I hope to continue my journey under her guidance for many moons to come.
