I found working with Oby very refreshing; she has an extremely professional yet warm manner. What I found and continue to find most admirable about Oby’s work is the level of transparency about her journey, which makes it so easy to relate to her. Oby coached me through the art of congruency and authenticity, which I believe to be major themes she uses in her work. Thanks to Oby, I have made these two things apart of my life mantra and it has been freeing to say the least.

Counselling was something I had never thought of doing before the end of 2015, but it was one of the greatest decisions I had ever made. It truly was the start of a beautiful journey within myself, a process of healing which Oby was so present. After suffering a break down towards the end of 2015, I responded so well with our sessions that I didn’t require any medical intervention at all. Oby is an incredible listener and grew to be a truly empathetic friend. During our sessions, I didn’t just find the opportunity to heal, but to grow and own my story. Now in the beginning of 2016, I believe with the help of Oby, I have truly found the courage to be myself unapologetically and live and accept a life full of joy and incredible possibilities.

I came to find Oby’s services at a very crucial time in my life. I was sinking deep into depression and feeling suicidal majority of the time. I sought out counselling because I had no one else to turn to in my everyday life that I felt would understand and give insight to the complexity of what I was going through. The last several months with Oby have helped save my life. I don’t know if I would be here today without her service. It’s been so healing to have someone listen with such empathy and openness. Counselling is tough! But I found it to be extremely rewarding with Oby.

It’s helped me to get to know myself so much more, understand how my experiences have shaped me but do not define me. It’s been a really growing experience and I highly recommend it, in fact I have been. Pursuing counselling with Oby has been really life altering for me.

I have recommended to some of the people in my life and the ones who have pursued it have felt the same way! Often it’s thought that everything must be tumbling down in your life before you pursue counselling. I found that to not be the case! If I didn’t have a crisis in my life I would still pursue this service, it’s been an incredible investment in myself just to even get to know me better and be better for those around me.

I started the year feeling lost and overwhelmed. I was reluctant to ask for help but knew that I could not carry on living as I was. I am so happy I found you!!

During our sessions you guided me and helped me realise how my behaviours and fears where stopping me from revealing my true self and be happy. With your help and support I have been able to breakthrough so many issues that have been causing me suffering for years. I feel so much more free and confident and I am so grateful to you and our journey! Thank you so much!!

The self-harming awareness course was truly insightful. The course delved into a subject area which is such a taboo. I felt that you presented the topic very well. Not only was the content precise and very educational, in addition you personalised some of the topics by sharing some of your own personal experiences. One the things that struct me was that children can self-harm in many different ways than the obvious. Thank you for a job well done.

I attended the self-harming course run by Oby and as a volunteer youth worker, mother and aunty, I felt it was very helpful in helping me notice/identify signs and symptoms I would probably have overlooked in the past.

It opened my eyes to what pressure the young people are under and how they tend to deal with it in their own ways.

The training enlightened me on how to approach the subject if it ever came up and how to go about reporting it to the appropriate people if it was beyond my power. I would recommend this to everyone, you never know when it might help you save a life.

In a short time Oby was able to help identify issues that were the root cause of my anxiety. More importantly she helped me identify strategies to address and overcome a difficult situation

I had no clear direction, felt really stuck and had a lot of self-doubt about applying for jobs that I once could only dream about. Oby gave me the tools to bring my vision into actualisation. I find her methods highly effective, results oriented and holistic

Having worked as an actress and been a stay home mum, I really wanted a career change, but I found it quite daunting knowing how to transfer my skills and experience into a new career that I would find rewarding. Oby helped me feel confident in my abilities, she really encouraged me to believe that I could apply my skills, gifts and experiences to teaching and working with young children.
