What People say After the First Session 😍
First time from a long time to speak to someone understand me without talking alot
Always look forward to my sessions.
Daiana is a great listener, very empathetic towards my situation. She tries to come up with various ways to identify the problem and provide a solution.
I love how deeply he goes into what I say. The questions he asks to teach how I really feel about everything is immensely helpful.
kelsey is great with providing some technical solutions for the topics we discussed.
Though we aware following what he said. His input validated what we were doing. We did receive help with other aspects such us sibling rivalry and how to go about our child's education. I think Mr Theo is a pleasant and very helpful person. Would definitely recommend him to others.
My sessions were great, my therapist is very helpful and motivating.
Welcoming, calming, gentle.
I had a wonderful and constructive sessions with Manuel and Fitcy. I found Manuel to be very affable and he gave me the freedom to conduct our sessions in a pace where I am comfortable, this made it easier for me to discuss things i normally would not. My counseling was intended to focus solely on my stress triggers, but Manuel dug deep into my past and origins and helped me understand my issues and myself better. I would unquestionably advise Manuel to anyone trying to work through issues in therapy since he is very light to deal with, understanding and never judgmental."
I am very grateful that I made my life coaching session with Ms Beverly and to your team can say Thank you very much for helping me all the way of my session. Every session has a fruitful meaning in my life journey, a journey that I get more attached with God and positivity in life. I great attachment which I will carry on from the rest of my new journey. Its sad to say that I ended up already my 4 sessions however it was replaced of enlightenment courage what life it could be. Im wishing you(Ms Beverly) and the rest of your team to help more people experiencing difficulties straggle’s in life to enlighten and courage to love their life journey more positive way and attached to Gods purpose of life. Thank you very much and Godbless us all. ♥️
She’s amazing. Very understanding, very attentive, very smart.
Very comfy sessions and the therapist was hyper nice and knowledgeable
My sessions have been going well so far and I’m learning so much about my feelings, etc. I feel like I can count on someone when I’m dealing with problems and to see how I can cope with them.
Honestly speaking she’s probably the best therapist I’ve ever had, if you’re looking for cbt and recovery from anxiety and ptsd she’s the one to go for. But even if you’re struggling with anger and depression, separation, commitment, family and relationship problems she’s the one to go for. I tried so many different online services and offline similarly but started to give up until I actually gave fitcy health a go who matched me up with Elena. I’ve improved a lot even my friends and family notice it. No words would describe how much I really appreciate what Elena does and has done so far. I was dreading the feedback part because I was afraid of not having much time with her but seriously I wouldn’t want those who also need the help to miss out on what she has to offer and the management told me I don’t have to worry about that 😂. Elena, you are amazing!
Suzzanne is a good listener… Try her best to guide me through the therapy journey but with no judgment and with great support without making me feel negative about me or about my partner.
"Naina has been just amazing at what she does. She's always on her toes to figure out a way for all the problems I face.."
I am grateful to have a safe, non judgmental, healthy space where I can fully be myself
I am so relieved with her, she understand where I come from, also she respect my way of expressing things, she is very easy discussing my ideas, the homework she gave helps me to open my heart and mind for different direction, am attending to continue with her for more seasons.
"My sessions were very good. He is very caring and he listened carefully and I felt comfortable. He never saw himself someone who is better than me or look down in me. Actually, that was the most important thing to me. He showed me his interest in listening to me and that he understand what I felt which made me feel relive"
Gaston listens and gives advice in a non-judgmental and kind way. He makes me realize and understand different point of views and helps me think differently from what I’m accustomed to.
Very well done. Fatima helped me through a lot.
I have been putting therapy off for about 2 years. I've always had anxiety, and occasional panic attacks due to a lot of internal and external issues with life, and basically adulthood. The catalyst was actually starting my new job. It was a whole shift and I had to make major adjustments with my life and relationships. I'm only 2 months in, and already handling more than what I'm supposed to. I found myself crying day in and day out because of this, and I would isolate myself away from family. Nathasha listened with an open mind and heart, and had compassion and empathy. She gave me tips on how to better handle myself in situations during a panic/anxiety attack, and communication tips with my boss (who is my biggest obstacle at the moment). It's only been one session, but I can't wait for the next!
Amazing, has helped me work through lots of things, attentive and very supportive.
honestly idk where to start, fitcy helped me find gastón and he saved my life, i have been looking for affordable therapy for soo long and for years i wasn’t able to find until i found fitcy, then found my amazing therapist gastón, i love how flexible fitcy and gastón are
She is an excellent psychologist, really smart and insightful. She is definitely well-experienced as a psychologist as she able to understand and respond very well to my thoughts and emotions. I would definitely recommend her.
The sessions were really helpful, it made me understand myself more and I had a noticeable improvement with my mental health.
Seeing therapists can be daunting, Gaston makes it easy. He gets it, is able to help me break things down and work through everything, he’s brilliant!
