“It has been great working with Niamh. I was really struggling after coming out of an abusive relationship with a girl who abused me badly. Niamh helped me to reclaim my shattered self worth, and got into my own issues of co-dependency and perfectionism so I don’t fall into another abusive relationship and have a better relationship with myself and my future. Niamh is kind, gentle, sensitive, understanding, incredibly compassionate and was a joy to work with. I gained great insight, healing and a sense of acceptance and empowerment from our sessions. I highly recommend her. “

‘Penny was always positive & encouraging in her feedback & never at all judgmental’.

Suzanne has training and experience in multiple different therapy types and brings a flexible way of working, using different approaches at different times to help move me forward in dealing with my difficulties. Suzanne can be gently challenging when needed, an approach I have appreciated helps me to acknowledges areas where I may be stuck and move forward. 

‘’I found Penny very easy to talk to and she truly cared which meant I was open and honest with how i was feeling, particularly when i was struggling.

I went to Luz confused, ashamed, lost and desperate. A middle aged woman living a life that made no sense. Her kindness was the first thing I noticed. I could cry when I think of the relief I felt at her lack of judgement and her sheer compassion for the person behind the eating disorder. I felt listened to. I felt heard and I felt validated. She saw past the surface right into my soul and from our very first session I knew she was going to help me. 

I genuinely don't think I can put into words how thankful I am for Luz. Since my first session, I've been treating with nothing but kindness, patience and honesty. Before starting my journey with the clinic, I was worried about seeking help, especially surrounding eating, as I felt I wasn't 'bad enough' to see a therapist or a dietitian. I. now realized that wasn't true. After learning how much of my behavior is disordered or damaging, being guided on how to make changes has completely improved my quality of life.

I thoroughly recommend Niamh for any troubles you are facing which you need assistance through. I wasn't sure what to expect, however the way she has helped me has been 'life changing' in a very positive way. Trust her and the process which she brings. Her background, compassion, experience and professionalism is excellent.

I have recently completed a 7 week guided self-help course with Ursula Philpot to tackle my binge eating disorder. Having suffered from BED for several years, I can safely say that the programme has helped me to overcome this and I am finally in control of my eating. The course is really well designed and the exercises, together with the weekly sessions with Ursula, really helped me to think differently and to form new habits. I now have a much healthier eating pattern, regularly having food groups that I was previously denying myself of, which in turn was causing me to binge. I’ve learned to eat in a way that I didn’t think was possible without putting on weight, and the results have been life-changing for me, both physically and mentally. 

Suzanne is a fantastic psychologist. She has really helped me with my OCD and anorexia. I’m now in recovery and could not recommend her enough.

Very supportive without being intrusive. It was very helpful to have access to reliable, simple advice and support’

Luz is an incredible therapist. Clearly vastly experience in her field she is passionate, strong and driven with a wonderful energy and an organic honesty about her. She has the ability to stretch me when I need it and catch me when I fall. Always calm, always gentle, always patient and always with a welcoming smile. 

The treatment has been hard at times but Luz has made it ok to feel scared. She has soothed the terrified child inside me and nurtured the adult left trying to cope. Her strength of character has carried us both and more than anything else with Luz, I feel safe. I know she’ll only ever take me as far as I can tolerate. I trust her and I trust the process.

I don’t know what the rest of my journey has in store but I know I won’t face it alone. Luz really is one of a kind and an utter credit to her profession. Working with her has given me hope that there are brighter days to come and I will always be grateful for the day I found the courage to walk through her door. 

I went to see Suzanne after struggling for many years with obsessive compulsive disorder. Through my work with Suzanne I have been able to overcome many of the disabling rituals that had been holding back for such a long time. This has enhanced the quality of my life and I cannot recommend Suzanne highly enough.

‘I have overall better understanding about my condition because of information received from Penny. She was knowledgeable, compassionate and helpful.’

‘The support offered was friendly, efficient and very educational - Penny was great and excellent at keeping me on track’

I have always felt that Suzanne sees and talks with me as a whole individual person and not as the sum of my difficulties- this is really important to me. I have struggled with serious difficulties related to past traumatic events for most of my life. I have been working with Suzanne for over five years now and with her excellent help I have been able to, and continue to, make significant changes and progress so that my life is immeasurably better. I am so much more able to be 'in' my life, to feel hope for the future and that I can keep moving forward. Thank you so much Suzanne.

‘’My experience of working with Penny was fantastic, and life altering in many ways. The service felt tailored towards my specific needs - the concerns and issues I raised were always explored further and worked on. Penny would often go above and beyond, sending me additional resources and supplementary guidance and advice outside of the sessions‘’

I have been seeing Luz for almost a year now & I can honestly say that she has changed my life. I have suffered for several years with anxiety/depression and since I have been having therapy with Luz I feel like a new person.
She is so wonderful & understanding & makes me look at things differently than I would. She is the best therapist and I feel lucky to have her to discuss my concerns with.
I can not recommended herself or Insight Therapy enough.
