I have received excellent feedback and testimonials from clients, group members and seniors and awarded in 2016 for my work as a counsellor-"Does that little bit extra without being asked, a caring person and real asset to the counselling team".
Empowering people to lead more satisfying lives is a life’s mission and actualization for me.
“Thank you so much for your help, support and guidance. Wouldn’t have come so far without you!”
“Thank you for everything Ragni, I finally feel like I’m on the right track!”
“I have learnt to be compassionate, more kinder to myself, more rational and realistic in my thinking. Feeling no longer a failure.”
“It’s helpful what you are doing, helping me settle and build my confidence.”
“I am truly thankful and appreciate your counselling and care. All my best wishes for your future and all the great help your skills offer not only to me, but to others.”
“I like the way you break things down. You approach the issue with an objective mind and see the logic in my behaviour which I find very helpful.”
“ With Ragni’s positive and calming energy I have been able to unlock a number of negative and unhelpful thought patterns. Prior to meeting Ragni my confidence was low and my anxiety levels quite high, I not longer looked forward to going to work. The expert guidance I have achieved has been been supportive yet challenging; encouraging me to embrace deeply held fears which have held me back in my professional career and on a personal level too. I feel energized, and excited about my role at work on a more consistent basis and I am grateful for the help I have received so far. A most sincere thanks to Ragni for her patience, warmth and encouragement.”
“Thank you for being a great source of strength and positivity in my life helping me to find greater peace, happiness and acceptance of myself.”
“The tools I have learned through CBT have helped enormously…I feel much stronger…Many thanks for being a great teacher!”
“In comparison to previous counselling experiences through my GP I felt these sessions to be the most effective.”
