Carol has helped me so much in the three months she’s been working with me. She has a cornucopia of experience, strategy’s and insights that have helped me feel happy regularly for the first time in a year. I can’t stress enough the help she has provided me.
Carol is a wonderful human with a very warm, welcoming feeling. It was easy to talk with her, whether it was her being a respectful listener, or her sharing insight and stories from her wealth of experience. I often found myself writing down things she said, as she has a skill for taking what seems to be a difficult concept and framing it into a simple, easy-to-understand tidbit of information. I strongly recommend using her services.
Carol made me realize that the sadness I was feeling won’t last forever. She gave me lots of strategies that I could incorporate into my daily life that brought me peace and allowed me to move forward.
Carol was such a sweet and caring therapist. I felt very at peace in her sessions. I did EMDR with her, and it was incredibly helpful. Highly, highly recommend.
The de-briefing after the EMDR really helped me understand my experience. She was wonderful.
Ms. Carol is an amazing therapist, she actively listens and then responds back with practical next steps you can take to better yourself or those areas of your life where you seek healing.
Carol is not only easy to talk to, but fun too. She's engaging, supportive, and offers different strategies for different concerns. She's not intimidating and reminds me of speaking to a close friend.
Carol is a very empathetic person. Her years of practice give her a lot of expertise and confidence. She has the ability to help you feel like you are capable of making the changes you need in your life.
Carol is an excellent therapist who I feel calm and relaxed and safe with, whom I have built a good patient therapist bond with. She is someone who I trust implicitly and her EMDR Thearapy was carried out extremely expertly.
Carol East is very empathetic. She listens carefully to what I am saying. I feel she can relate to my experiences and understands how I’m feeling and why this is the case. She offers constructive coping strategies which I am practising and which seem to be helping. I would thoroughly recommend her.
Carol is phenomenal! She is the best therapist I’ve had!
I have only had one session
Carol listens and understands how you feel and knows exactly where you’re coming from. I love her homework that she gives to help with your healing
Mrs Carol was great to talk with. I enjoyed our sessions so much and wished I could've continued them.
Carol is so amazing and relatable. I am usually shy talking to people but she makes me feel safe :)
I like having homework and her checking in to see if I did it. I have a since of accomplishment. Also enjoy accountability
