“Excellent, professional and non judgemental care. Stephen is patient, listens intently and above all he is honest and I’ve really felt like I can be truly myself in therapy sessions with him which has helped me tremendously. Highly recommended.”

“Wonderful and caring. Stephen has transformed my life! I found his approach so professional – I felt cared for, listened to and cherished – seen as an individual with individual requirements.  Stephen is a true credit to his profession and this world. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this guy – he knows what he’s doing that’s for sure.”

“I’m so pleased with the work that I did with this therapist. He was perceptive and created just the right environment to help me feel safe enough to look at some painful things I felt I had to look at. I will be going back again after taking this break. Thank you again Stephen”

Stephen has done so much more for me than I could ever summarize in a simple review, and has helped me accomplish far more than I could have hoped for or imagined in less than a year (during this 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic). Stephen has helped me get in touch with the power, strength, and courage within me. He helped me rid my life of abuse and exploitation. He has helped me see the truth of who I am, my value, and worth as a human being. He has helped me find my voice. And for the first time in my life I am independent and free in every sense of these words.
