“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 came to Stephen with some ambivalence towards therapy because I found it hard to believe that my old, engrained beliefs and habits could be shifted; In fact, I’d almost given up hope that I could feel better. But during our first meeting I felt I could work with him and soon, I was doing some challenging and daunting work. In a matter of a few months, I learned more about myself than in the previous years of therapy and as well as this new self-knowledge, I have achieved a level of self-acceptance that I never thought possible. Stephen has provided me with a model and a set of skills I can apply to define and address my needs, increase my self-reliance, and tackle situations that once baffled me. We have incorporated my film work and creative writing into sessions to help interpret and understand my needs, and how I see the world. I have never felt as alive, and although I still meet bumps in the road, I have renewed hope, and I’m making steady progress towards some quite specific objectives. Stephen seems to strike the perfect balance between being a trusted advocate, having crystal clear boundaries, and in the midst of this close therapeutic relationship, he is always highlighting one’s own personal responsibility. He never pushes me, unless I ask him, but I always feel he’s nudging me in the directions I want to travel. I think I have grown more in the last few months, working with Stephen, than I could ever have imagined and I’m certain there’s more to come. He has helped me to find myself in the world and I’m glad to be home.”

“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.
