Nina has been such an amazing presence in my life. She really has helped me through some of the more rough patches of my life. I really love her approach and her professionalism. I would most definitely suggest her to anyone in need of a counsellor :)
My daughter has been having quite a few session with Nina and I can’t describe how pleased and happy I’m with her, she is so kind, caring , understanding and always so helpful I feel that anyone one that needs a very caring honest and open minded therapist that is there to listen and bring you real support should contact her she is amazing and is always there to help!! My daughter has been doing so much better since she began her therapy and I cannot put in words how grateful I am she was match with this therapist in definitely was amazing. Thank you much Nina :)
Nine Powell is an exceptional counselor. She quickly put me at ease, listens without judgement, asks insightful questions, and offers valuable advice. She is clearly incredibly kind, caring, and empathic and has excellent listening and communication skills. I'm really grateful to have Nina guide me through this journey and couldn't have asked for a better counselor. Can't recommend her enough!
Nina is a very empathetic and encouraging counsellor and approaches every conversation so free of judgement. I have found working with her, especially through the challenges of the election and the pandemic, extremely helpful.
I've felt comfortable with Nina from the very first session. She allows a space where my values can grow in a positive way, and has a brilliant way of deterring any sort of self doubt in a constructive way. I recommend 100%
Nina is everything you could hope for and more; she's the real deal. I respect her therapeutic creativity and expertise. She offers out of the box questions, ideas, choices and feedback to help me think differently. I was scared to start therapy many months ago. She created a genuinely safe space to share openly and work through life's challenges, past and present. Nina is incredibly supportive, patient and kind. I am thankful for her help and know I will continue to progress with her guidance.
Nina is a wonderful counsellor. She helps me develop strategies that are both practical and that yield results. Her schedule is very accommodating and I look forward to our sessions every week.
I've been working with Nina for ~ 2 weeks and I find her to be very kind, a good listener, experienced and knowledgeable. She's helped me realize some things already that I previously haven't clearly seen for what they were. I recommend Nina to anyone seeking counseling.
So far I have a lot of confidence in our discussions and I am developing a trusting relationship.
