Oly

As a therapist and a person, I can’t speak highly enough of Oly

As a therapist and a person, I can’t speak highly enough of Oly. He helped me through a very dark period of my life, a period which I can happily say is coming to an end! He was compassionate, friendly and understanding, and would do anything he could to help me feel comfortable. He never pushed me too far, and allowed our sessions to move at a pace that was… Read more “As a therapist and a person, I can’t speak highly enough of Oly”

Finding someone to talk to about yourself, as a young male

Finding someone to talk to about yourself, as a young male, can be a daunting task and in January 2017 I needed help to find my ‘calm’ again. I was going through a traumatic professional situation, which had its roots in a toxic personal relationship, and I needed rescuing. I’d already had a rather scarring experience of therapy from a few years previously and I guess this made me anxious… Read more “Finding someone to talk to about yourself, as a young male”

It was difficult for me to take the step to seek therapy

It was difficult for me to take the step to seek therapy but as soon as I had completed that first session with Oly, I was put at ease and knew that it was an important part of helping myself. I looked forward to our sessions and felt very comfortable. The information we explored I worked with and found it really helped. I would recommend Oly to anyone should they… Read more “It was difficult for me to take the step to seek therapy”

I approached Oly at one of my most darkest periods of my life

I approached Oly at one of my most darkest periods of my life. I was lost, confused and was having thoughts which were completely out of character which was incredibly frightening. The moment I contacted Calm Journey I started to feel reassured that support was on the way. Unusually, Oly e-mailed me within the 6 hours that was promised (which sadly is quite rare, not only what I experienced in… Read more “I approached Oly at one of my most darkest periods of my life”

I couldn’t recommend a better therapist.

In mid 2017 I was in a rough place, my anxiety was through the roof and my mind was racing. Calm Journey was a safe haven where I could talk about my issues in private. My therapist was a lovely guy called Oly who was the perfect blend of professional and knowledgeable but at the same time loyal, un-judgemental, down to earth and kind, he got me through some of… Read more “I couldn’t recommend a better therapist.”

Oly was a god send in helping our son – couldn’t recommend him enough

Calm Journey was recommended to us when our Son was going through a very dark time and he clearly needed and wanted more help than we were able to offer him. This is when he first met Oly. Our son is very open and honest and wanted to get to grips with and try and understand his issues which were consuming him at the time. Oly immediately put him at… Read more “Oly was a god send in helping our son – couldn’t recommend him enough”

When I first met Oly

When I first met Oly I felt isolated and alone and had given up in people wanting to listen to me. My session’s with Oly helped me become more confident in myself, believe in myself and taught me various coping techniques. Without finding Oly I’m not sure where I maybe today. I now have the confidence to learn to drive and have since re enrolled in… Read more “When I first met Oly”

Oly was the right person at the right time for my son

Oly was recommended to us when our 15 year old son was going through a particularly difficult time. He immediately struck up an open and supportive dialogue with both our son and us and provided round the clock support whenever it was needed. A short (ten session) course of therapy helped get things back on an even keel and it’s great to know that Oly will be there if/when we… Read more “Oly was the right person at the right time for my son”

For me personally, Oly managed

For me personally, Oly managed to redirect my thinking to look at things from a different angle. A perspective that has always there, but I just couldn’t see at times. Nevermore than a meeting. email or phone call away, I always felt like he had my back when I needed it. Even if it was just to get the noise out of my head and vent, he was (and still… Read more “For me personally, Oly managed”

I cannot recommend Nina at Calm Journey highly enough …

Even though I am a relatively strong person, I found coping with my marriage break up very difficult whilst still working full time and dealing with the fallout that comes with being with someone for almost 30 years. A work colleague witnessed my difficult journey and when life just became completely overwhelming she recommended Nina, and I haven’t looked back since. For the last 20 months, Nina has been, and… Read more “I cannot recommend Nina at Calm Journey highly enough …”

After struggling with stress and

After struggling with stress and bereavement I was referred to Nina. I have never met a greater listener or a kinder person than Nina.

I started seeing Nina because I felt overwhelmed after having my first baby.

When I was separated from

When I was separated from my husband, things were so bad, I wasn’t well at all. It was the worst period of my life. I couldn’t trust anyone anymore and I really thought I would never trust another person again or it would take very long time until I learn to trust someone again. I never thought I would seek a professional help but my situation was so bad, I… Read more “When I was separated from”

Katie

I have no hesitation in recommending her!

I met Katie through the Calm Journey website. At that time I had recently been through a very upsetting medical experience that had left me feeling traumatised. I was feeling totally overwhelmed, scared & ‘freaked out’. Seeking help was the best thing I did as Katie really helped me to make sense of all my negative & damaging thoughts. Katie put me at ease from the first meeting. I felt… Read more “I have no hesitation in recommending her!”

I wholeheartedly recommend!

At the start of my time with Katie I was struggling for many reasons, and it was certainly a low point in my life. In the months following, I felt a great improvement in my outlook on life and the state of my mental health. After 6 months I felt like I was truly thriving and was better equipped to handle life’s tribulations. Katie is incredibly perceptive and adaptable, so… Read more “I wholeheartedly recommend!”
