Psychotherapy & Counselling in Cheshire and Central London
Hopefully this website will give you all the information that you need to make an informed decision about choosing the right person for you. Whilst you can get a flavour of the person from the website and check out practical things such as qualifications, location and availability, nothing quite beats meeting in person.
The next crucial step in achieving the changes you would like to make is to either book an appointment , either in Cheshire or London, or to pick up the phone and have a quick chat; this step is crucial as you have to feel really comfortable with the person you choose to accompany you on this journey, and really confident that they can facilitate this change.
Through years of study and practice Wendy makes this choice easy by being qualified in all three areas. Choosing Wendy will mean that you have picked somebody more qualified and accomplished than most; with experience working with people from all walks of life, from celebrities and high profile people to the homeless and everyone in-between.
Being in her early forties Wendy can create a rapport with all age groups, from teenagers to the elderly. Working with Wendy you will find that you are not expected to book for weekly sessions of ‘navel gazing’ that last for years but are instead given ways to get quickly to where you want to be, with great empathy, warmth and humour.
Wendy Dignan – First Choice For Psychotherapy & Counselling
Helping my clients to reach their goals in as few sessions as possible, in a positive and uplifting environment.
Wendy Dignan came highly recommended from a family friend. I have since recommended Wendy to others who also highly rate the service. I would have no hesitation to further recommend Wendy to family, friends and colleagues.
I found the sessions very enlightening, I quickly understood my behaviour patterns and how these were having an effect on my life and was able to identify how to change this and therefore prevent the problem from recurring.
Wendy is friendly and good humoured, creating a relaxing environment conducive to frank and open discussions.
Yes, I did compare prices at the beginning and Wendy is very competitive, which makes the therapy affordable. She isn’t a money grabbing therapist and will only ask to see you when she thinks you need to come back, rather than it always being every week. If anything she had to wean me off my therapy as I enjoyed our sessions so much!
I have recommended Wendy to a number of people for various different reasons and the feedback has always been the same…she is truly wonderful at what she does, which is essentially changing people’s lives emotionally and often setting them free for the first time in their lives…everyone needs a Wendy!
Once you get to that point, future feelings and situations don’t seem to get to you in the same way and you are able to deal with things differently. Don’t get me wrong you still feel all the normal emotions but the bad ones don’t seem to stay with you in the same unhealthy way – it isn’t a magic pill or spell, you just have to remember the processes you are taught by Wendy and you react and deal with things in the right way, which is so liberating!
From the first session to the last I knew that everything I said was being listened to and a reason and explanation and way forward would be given.
I was given various tools and reading material to follow and I feel that these helped me gain confidence and enabled me to move forward without Wendy.
A very important aspect of the Wendy’s therapy is you can e-mail her or call anytime and you receive a response which is so important at times. At the same time you know that you are going to get better and less reliant on the sessions too.
I have already passed on 4 recommendations who have all benefitted greatly from the experience. We all need to have objectivity and direction in our lives and Wendy’s sessions give you all of that. Wendy doesn’t just listen and go over the past but she advises on and helps you to make plans for the future. To put it crudely, Wendy sticks her neck out and challenges you and tells you how she sees it but she then inspires you and makes you really believe that you can move forward.
I think that I have covered all of the positive aspects of Wendy’s sessions so to summarise; Wendy is a fantastic listener who gains your confidence immediately. Her knowledge of her subject and passion for her client’s heath is obvious and you feel that your recovery is very important to her. Sessions are always booked by you, there is no minimum amount of sessions you are advised to take and it is very clear that Wendy wants you to go away and practice and understand how to live independent of the sessions.
If you are currently experiencing difficulties in your life and you can’t rationalise things and can’t seem to see a way forward into a better place then I would urge you to seek Wendy’s help.
Yes definitely, I have done in fact. I have massively benefited from my sessions with Wendy and I think other people could too. She is not the stereotypical psychologist, people have preconceived ideas about Freudian type psychotherapists and I think Wendy breaks this mould and makes counselling into something tangible.
Before I came to Wendy, I had no idea what was wrong with me, it was a huge relief to know that I was just suffering from anxiety and nothing more than that. She explained that 1 in 4 people have suffered from some kind of anxiety/ depression in their lives and this fact alone made me think it was not just me then.
I have enjoyed all aspects of our work- talking things through, reading work sheets at home, keeping diaries and reading books recommended by Wendy. I have made massive progress over the past few weeks, am a lot less anxious and can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I wish other people would look beyond the stigma of mental health problems and the role of psychologists and seek help for their problems. By making the decision to speak to a professional you are already a step on the ladder to recovery.
Talking through my issues with such a genuine, caring and talented therapist. The CBT methods Wendy gave me to deal with my issues and how easy it was to make progress under Wendy’s care, I used to bounce out of every session feeling I could take on the world. Also Wendy’s reassurance that I actually wasn’t bonkers and explaining my condition to me (something my GP never did). She also explained why I felt the way I did and that it was all fixable…!
Although I consider myself a confident person, I was really nervous when I met Wendy for the first time. I had only emailed her before so it was really nerve wracking walking up the stairs to her office. I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Wendy is really normal, no in fact she isn’t normal as she is unfailingly bright and smiley even when she has to listen to me moan on about how awful my life was. It feels like having a chat with somebody who just gets you and you can trust with things you have never trusted anybody else with before. The magic bit comes when things you have talked about just pop up into your head and you start to do things differently. Wendy once joked about not having a magic wand, but I think she has.
