"My girlfriend and I go to Mim and she literally saved our relationship. She is flexible with our session times and just gentle and kind and really empathetic in nature. She has helped us see each others side with more empathy and shown us very particular lines of questioning, and exercises that we can use with each other to learn and grow together and our conflict is so much smoother and quicker resolved. She taught us there will always be conflict but there are ways to navigate it and remain respectful of each other. I now love my partner more than I've ever loved a partner and I am ever grateful to Mim for helping us along the way. She also just really really genuinely cares. I cannot recommend her enough!"

"Mim is kind, caring, funny, thoughtful and above all genuine. For the past 40 years I have been hiding and being ashamed about my sexuality and my gender, and after trying numerous other therapists I never thought I would find the answers I was so desperately seeking. I stumbled across Mim doing a search for a new therapist and seeing that she had LGBTQIA+ on her website, was a lightbulb moment - I didn’t really know what those were... but from that very first introductory session, I knew that Mim was the right therapist for me. Working with Mim has shown me that I don’t need to hide and that every permutation of sexuality and gender are perfectly valid. I have learnt so much about myself that it’s kind of scary that she can read me like a book!. She has opened doors and looked into dark rooms, and like a detective with a flashlight, has poked and prodded those darker memories and thoughts , helping me sort them so that they can be looked at again in the light, to show me that they are not that scary, and helping me free those chains that were holding me back. While I still have a long way to go, I am eager to see what the future brings and what answers still remain undiscovered, but I will be forever grateful for the help and support along this journey, I wouldn’t want a better guide."

"Mim gave us more than what we expected. It's not easy to find a relationship counsellor who isn't just there to assess and analyse what's happening (clinical), but to ask meaningful questions that we can both reflect on and practise with each other. Mim helped us realise it's possible to enjoy couples therapy. Even when it's hard, it challenges both of us to grow together. I would 100% recommend any couple to see Mim—even if you're not particularly dealing with specific issues, there's always things we can better improve—like communication strategies understanding ourselves and our boundaries, and more!"
- Heterosexual couple, mid 20s.
"We've been seeing Mim for couples therapy with the intention of exploring our options - whether we remain co-parenting our children or rekindle our relationship. I know this is a long journey. So far, her approach of walking us through an 'empathetic discussion' has been brilliant. It’s a skill that I will work on, and although I see myself as a very empathetic person, I did find that very difficult and would like to improve. During this session, there was a pivotal moment in our 20 year relationship. I feel like we're able to say things to each other in the therapy room that we generally can't in front of each other."
- Co-parents, late 40s
"I'm forever grateful that I crossed paths with Mim now have her support guiding me through struggles I never addressed from my childhood. Mim has completely opened up a whole deeper level of thinking and connecting with myself that I've NEVER explored. I used to be a very closed person, who really struggles to talk about emotions. I tried a number of therapists before with no luck. Mim just makes you feel so comfortable, she genuinely listens and cares - you're not just another client. It feels like she understands you through building off her various life experiences, and that meant a lot to me. It allows me to trust her. She has a huge range of techniques, so if one way isn't working, she'll take a different approach to get the another answer."

"My partner and I decided to try couples counseling as we've been together for 7 years, since being teenagers, and felt our communication (among other things) was lacking and we wanted to strengthen our bond. Our housemate recommended Mim and we've been seeing her since February. My partner has done therapy for awhile but this has been my first experience (I've now gone on to get my own personal psychologist as well as having Mim for our couples counsellor) and it has been a super rewarding, eye opening and, at times, challenging endeavor. Mim has treated us with a lot of care and respect. Each session has been a time to learn and connect and Mim has been an integral teacher who allows us to arrive at conclusions and discussions through our own means whilst gently guiding us when needed. Mim is someone we openly recommend (and couples counseling for that matter) when we talk to others about our experience. We're feeling grounded and secure in our relationship, our communication is now centered around listening and understanding, and we're enjoying each others company... the list goes on. I whole heartedly recommend getting in contact with Mim if you're at all interested in what they provide as it's been an on-going experiencing that has helped me personally and my relationship."
- Heterosexual couple, early 20s
"In the past I sought guidance from those around me because I didn't trust that I could make the right decision for myself. Because of this, I’ve always yearned for a mentor and expected therapy to offer me that. Working with Mim, however, has been incredibly empowering as she poses questions that guide me towards the answers for myself. I’m left with knowing that everything I need is inside of me. From doing 'the work' and shifting my perspective through new narratives I’m now able to release any anxiety, shame and resistance when it comes to making the best choice for me. I’m really looking forward to continuing my sessions with Mim as I work to strengthen my relationship to self."
