"It was an absolute joy to work with Bryony. She took me to places I had never imagined: testing and challenging my beliefs about myself, building confidence and trust in my abilities. She helped me tackle life and work - and held me gently accountable when I needed it. Highly recommend.”

"I found her emotional intuition really disarming, she have a wonderful ability to listen not to the words people say but the meaning behind them. Many times, before a session I was consciously aware of a sort of ‘block’ in how I was feeling, never quite sure how I would get the most out of the session, but she has an amazing ability to just pop the invisible balloon and I always came out of the session feeling invigorated. I never felt once that anything I wanted to discuss was menial or petty, she took everything on with professional interest and helped guide me through aspects of my anxieties that I hadn’t even fully recognised myself.”
