There are no testimonials here because:
1. They are considered unethical by many therapy related bodies (particularly the UK Council for Psychotherapy)
2. They can be fabricated
3. The Advertising Standards Authority require any testimonial to be verifiable and that would conflict with the confidentiality offered to clients.
4. As a society we are getting used to sites such as Trip advisor, but the difference is that those reviews are independent. On a practitioner’s site, they are responsible for the content and would naturally only put up good reviews.
5. A good, well trained therapist will have a wide range of approaches that they use to match to each particular client’s needs. Therapy is not like buying a kettle, and one person’s individual experience is unlikely to match your own, so reading other peoples’ experiences may be misleading rather than helpful.
6. When a person comes for any of the therapies, herbal medicine, coaching or careers advice, Paula endeavours to provide the best service possible, based on the wide range of experience and qualifications. For this service, the Therapist is appropriately compensated monetarily and hence, it could be seen as inappropriate to then ask individuals to provide testimonials.
Positive feedback is achieved, but this is what is expected as a norm, but Paula continues to reflect on any feedback and so learn to improve her practice and regularly attends `Continued Professional Development`(CPD) courses (at masters level for the Hypno-Psychotherapy) to meet the various Professional institutions standards. Paula has twice a month confidential hourly supervision sessions, which she also pays for, with a highly qualified UKCP supervisor, to make sure she is abiding by the standards and ethics required by the Professional bodies and through these discussions and expert feedback, to continue to improve and provide the best service possible to the customer.
