Individual therapy (mother, wife, counsellor) “Dear Annabel – thank you so much for the year that’s been. You are a brilliant counsellor and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet you and see you at work.

Family therapy (husband) “Dear Annabel – thank you so much for your extraordinary efforts in your work … We have all learned so much. Most particularly – I feel that each of us has the tools to manage whatever comes from here. This came as much from your sensitivity to our individual needs as from the model used.”

Family therapy (mother) “Dear Annabel – thank you for taking me into your group this week. It has been a pleasure watching such a skilled practitioner in action”.
Family therapy (mother) “Dear Annabel – I want to thank you for your skill as a therapist and your willingness to be so present with us all at family week. You have a wonderful ability to hold up to the person what they are doing and how they are being without causing injury so that awareness can come. It was a very healing week for me and I have a deep appreciation for my time at the clinic.”
Family therapy (daughter) “Words aren’t really adequate for the amazing result. Was very unexpected. I am in awe. Sometimes when we least expect it, we get beautiful surprises.
Thank you so much for your preparation and patience and for guiding us so elegantly through a challenging process. And for your wisdom.
It is a wonderful start for reconciliation with my parents, and we have agreed to meet for lunch or dinner somewhere soon.”
Family therapy (wife) “Dear Annabel and all the team who works with you who bring light, love and hope to the amazing clients who have begun their own journey in life with the gifts and skills you are all able to share with them on their road to recovery.
For this I give thanks. I also give thanks for the concept of family week too, not just because you get to be near and see your loved ones but for the experience – confronting experience – of sharing with other parents.
I have found the process has flowed to very much ‘trust the process’ and what a journey that has been for me. So much pain but welcome pain and I have learnt a lot about myself through the teachings and listening to other people’s experiences and wisdom – thank you …so much for your support and also for the safeness I felt in the whole process.”
