Testimonials

Due to relationship therapy being such a personal and private matter, client names have been omited for confidentiality

“We were in a very difficult place in our relationship and needed some professional help. Elaine was amazing, patient and kind. Always listens attentively and supplied us with great tools and exercises to move our relationship forward. Even though I have stopped seeing Elaine I know that she is available to reach out to and see should I need any help again. Thank you very much Elaine for all your help.”

“I chose Elaine as my counsellor to help guide and support me with my relationship with myself (working progress), that would in turn help me strengthen my relationship with my partner. Having been in counselling for a few years with a few different counsellors, I can speak from experience that Elaine has taught me more in 6 months than I have ever learned with anyone else.

How? Because Elaine gets to know you, how you communicate, how you measure your self worth and actively encourages you with helpful resources. I feel cared about, I feel seen, I feel like I can completely be myself and express my personality and humour which I have never been able to do that in the past. I have learned that I require a counsellor that is brave enough to share a tiny bit about themselves for us as clients to relate too.

So, if you’re looking for someone who is going to empower you, get to know you, listen to you with empathy and show such an interest, then Elaine is the counsellor for you. I rave about her at any given opportunity, which is why I now recommend her to my colleagues at work.”

“Elaine has a very gentle style which immediately made us feel at ease. She was inquisitive about us, and invested in our circumstances. She had some structure approaches for us to try which worked for us. We think Elaine is wonderful and would happily recommend her.”

“Elaine gave us some really useful tools that enabled us to communicate in a better way. Her counselling sessions were very relaxed and encouraged both of us to open up and be honest. She was very understanding of our situation. Elaine’s communication with us throughout has been excellent often sending us emails between sessions with relevant info. Thanks again Elaine.”

“We decided to got for couple counselling after my husband and I had experienced an extended period of being unable to have even one conversation without it ending up in a row! I even left home for a week to have a think about splitting up – a huge consideration after 30 years together. After lots of internet research, we decided on onlinecouplescounselling and Elaine Brown because of the consistently good reviews. From the outset, we both felt really comfortable with Elaine – with the way she not only listened but ‘heard’ what each of us was saying; by the way we felt she wasn’t taking sides but working at finding different ways we could approach how we related to each other. Elaine saw in each of us what we weren’t seeing in each other but which we did see when she pointed it out. In between sessions, we both worked at taking on board what Elaine had suggested and, surprisingly quickly, we found we were making huge strides in the right direction. Like magic! Instead of the same circular arguments, our approaches are different and we have a new level of understanding. This is wonderful as we have always loved each other and now we feel we are enjoying being with each other again. The tension has lifted from our home and caring has returned. It is, of course, not without the odd argument so is still dynamic but that’s fine. We can’t recommend the kind, emotionally intelligent and skilled Elaine more. Elaine has got us back to how we once were. Just wish we’d found her ages ago.”

“We started counselling sessions through the first covid lockdown when we noticed our daughter loosing confidence & just finding it difficult to just get her head around the day to day challenges teenagers were / are facing. Elaine has 100% given our daughter her confidence back, she’s less anxious & better prepared for the challenges she’ll face in the future. Highly recommend Go Counselling.”

“I was unable to put one foot in front of another when Elaine became my counsellor. She helped me recover from a deeply traumatic experience but perhaps more importantly make it an experience from which I have been able to change my life in every aspect for the better. Elaine is a deeply empathetic, kind and compassionate counsellor. It is however her phenomenal sense of humour and desire to help me lead the best possible life for me, that has given me the tools to become a person who loves life and can’t wait to get on with it, like, now! She is magic, I know it is hard work, experience and a talent for what she does but actually, but looking back it really feels like magic.”

“For anyone considering counselling I would say jump in with both feet as it has been life changing for us both as a couple and also individually. I can’t comment on other counsellors only Elaine but she has made a huge difference to our lives. She has such empathy, wiseness and kindness and a genuine willingness to help. We do not always give ourselves the time we deserve and these sessions make you carve out that time and prioritise yourself and your relationship. Sometimes you have to face some tough stuff and it’s not always an easy process but you feel heard and supported throughout the process; the end goal is so worth the journey. I feel very lucky to have met Elaine and am so grateful for the support she has provided to both me and our family and as a result we have all benefited and grown closer and stronger as a unit. “

Elaine is one of the most friendliest, warm, caring therapist I’ve ever met, she made us both feel very Welcome.
Her help, support and tools that she gave to myself, and my partner was very valuable, and it helped us out through a tough patch.
We hope to do a follow up in six months time with Elaine just to keep us on track.

My husband and I went to Elaine for support after a period of high stress had put some strain on us as a couple after twelve years of marriage. She was immediately friendly and approachable, and got to grips with our situation very rapidly to supply us with some genuinely useful exercises and tools to use together to help both “come down” from the stressful period and reinforce our relationship with positivity. She was empathetic, enthusiastic and yet optimistic with us every session, helping us to roadmap our way out of a tough corner and come back even stronger together. We had maybe half a dozen sessions with her in all and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone in any kind of relationship looking for anything from a tune-up to a full overhaul; at all points she was looking for real solutions for us, not just ways to keep us on as a retained client fee, which was very refreshing! Absolutely A* and then some.

“Elaine really helped my partner and I. We were going through a tough time due to a combination of having moved country, setting up new businesses here, the pandemic and then moving home. Suffice to say things were stressed to breaking point. Elaine helped us to examine the issues, not be so hard on ourselves, and focus on being kind to ourselves and each other. We are in a much better space now and will hopefully only need the occasional relationship MOT!”

2023

“As a couple deciding to access therapy together it can be personally challenging but sometimes necessary if you wish to move forward with your relationship. We found it helped us realign and set aside time for each other once again, we are truly thankful for the skills and resources you have provided us to keep moving forward with our relationship, thank you so much, to think about what we could have lost without your support is unimaginable.”

I came with a laundry list of struggles and anxieties to focus on and after each session, I would leave feeling so empowered and like a massive weight had been lifted. Elaine listens with such care, empathy and compassion. The attention she gives during each session makes you feel like you are the most important person to her in that hour and that is simply invaluable. I can’t thank you enough, Elaine!”
