Hi Sian, I hope you don’t mind me writing to you but I just wanted to thank you again for how much you have helped me!  In a very short space of time I was able to see things more clearly and be more rational about my problem.  You kindly helped me to identify a more healthy way of thinking about myself and taught me skills to deal with my fears.

I wanted to tell you that in August I was able to accept an invitation from a friend, book flights and get on a plane. I used the tools we discussed to overcome my irrational fear of danger and I had an enjoyed a relaxing break with my friend in America! Thank you Sian, you have been so kind for helping me through it, I will never forget what you did for me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Sian!! I honestly thought that my anxiety about people judging me was ‘just the way I was’ thank you for helping change the way I think, I feel like a completely different person with a whole new lease of life!

I had been having psychotherapy for years before going to Sian Jones. I had been trying to get over being abused as a child but I seemed to be going round and round in circles and didn’t seem to be feeling any better, just keep regurgitating the past. Someone told me how good Sian was so I thought I had nothing to lose. It was so refreshing going to someone who actually helps you look forward rather than dwelling on the past. At no point did she belittle or minimise my experiences as a child, she listened and empathised and tried to understand how awful it was for me. But what she did differently compared to my other therapy was to explain that with all the will in the world we could do nothing to change what had happened, but we could work on changing how I think about it and work towards a brighter future which I could be in control of. I wish I had gone to see Sian years ago. I feel I have managed to get things in to perspective and can finally put things in to a box, close the lid and move on.

My 6 sessions of CBT with Sian proved extremely useful. The strategies and techniques she provided began to make me feel calmer and more confident about the future. Sian is patient and asks challenging questions which made me look at things from new angles .This was time very well spent.

My doctor diagnosed me with OCD and basically told me there would be a 9 month wait for therapy on the NHS. I was in quite an agitated state by this point and felt completely on my own so I decided to try and find some help privately.  Luckily I found Sian who quickly set up an appointment with me and talked through the basics. She spent a great deal of time explaining things and actually listened to the full story of my issues which helped immensely. My OCD took the form of a terrible fear of blood and the contact with blood. This had got to a point where I would no longer use door handles (even at home) or would be constantly on high alert looking for any signs of blood when I was out. Sian worked with me and guided me through so that I could function properly again and could go out, go to work and generally feel normal again. I was extremely reassured when it was Sian rather than me who decided to cut down our sessions. I found her very easy to talk to and she was excellent at exposing the root of my problems and helping me work through them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and am very grateful to her for all her help.

Errol – Folkestone, Kent

I just wanted to drop you a note to show my appreciation for getting me through my depression and what has been a very ‘dark time’ Thanks for pointing out that things aren’t always as bad as they appear to be. I have managed to get closer to the end of the tunnel and have started to think rationally again, so there are some shades of blue sky appearing on the horizon. I still have a way to go yet but I am improving and am so grateful for your patience and understanding.

I appreciated the flexible approach to therapy which was tailored to my needs. Sian was good at remembering what I had said in previous sessions. I found her questions intelligent and thought-provoking!

Marie, Maidstone

I had Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with Sian because I was fed up having no confidence or self-esteem which was stopping me going out because I kept thinking people wouldn’t like me. Sian helped me recognise that I had developed negative thinking patterns about certain situations and it was not the situation itself that was bothering me.  During one session I had a light bulb moment when understood that it was my own thinking that had led to these horrible feelings!

I never thought I’d say this but I looked forward to each session. I felt free to discuss issues I would never feel comfortable discussing with anyone else.  It was a wonderful feeling, knowing you have complete trust in someone you barely know. At times throughout the sessions where it might feel more difficult to discuss sensitive issues Sian gives you space to breathe. She respected my feelings, and she had a great knack to explore my world without it feeling invasive and enabled me to see a light at the end of the tunnel!

I have found our meetings very useful and can happily say that my outlook has changed dramatically and positive changes have already started to bed in!

My wife threatened to leave me because of my seemingly uncontrollable anger and I didn’t want to acknowledge that I had a problem so she booked me an appointment.  After only one session I felt completely confident and relaxed about opening up and dealing with the subject. Sian is an absolute professional and her warmth and understanding and the method of the discussion she used, made me relaxed and calm and able to open up and express myself. I would highly recommend Sian along with her sincere and genuine character; I had no concerns about trusting her help and advice.
