Stories from our clients..

My experience of Human Givens psychotherapy was very positive.

It focuses on the present, not dwelling on the past and has helped me develop strategies that I could realistically use to make life better.

It recognises ingrained negative patterns with a view to changing them. I found it a practical down to earth approach.

Roberta was an excellent therapist, she has a calming and non-judgmental approach. She has made a huge difference to me personally and I am so pleased I met her.

I feel very fortunate to have found Roberta and to have received her herbal support over a period of time. She is an excellent herbal medicine practitioner, a very good listener, and adept at prescribing bespoke herbs to best support in a holistic way.

Alongside that, she gave me some helpful advice on other lifestyle and dietary matters – always in a compassionate, understanding, and non-judgmental way.

I highly recommend Roberta for support during key health changes and also to help with navigating the ups and downs of life in general.

Roberta is an excellent therapist who takes time to listen to and understand what you need and equips you with the tools to achieve your goals in addressing and overcoming your problems.  Having done a lot of generic counselling, this was different and tailored to my problems and my needs and I therefore found it far more useful.

I’ve been to many yoga classes with different teachers over the past 50 odd years, and I’m sticking with this one.  Roberta manages gently to help me focus on my internal experience – energy, connection with the world, relaxation – rather than just the external shapes of the poses.  Though it’s called a ‘gentle yoga’ class (and it is), I know that I’ve learnt so much about how my body/mind works from the skillful way she talks us through exercises.  She’s also wonderful at adapting poses for aging or painful bodies!

Human Givens Psychotherapy 

I worked with Roberta for a total of 5 sessions, who made me feel extremely relaxed, I have always been sceptical about therapy, and my time here has positively impacted my life and given me the necessary tools for further healing and I was able to move forward from past trauma that I have been unable to for a significant period of my teenage and adult years. Highly recommend.

Roberta, using the Human Givens approach, offered a simple, quick and effective treatment using the ‘best’ of a variety of approaches. I left empowered with the tools for self-management. Highly recommended.

After struggling with the after effects of concussion in 2016 I began going to Roberta for reflexology treatment.  She was very sympathetic to my needs and gradually helped draw me out of the fatigue and “fuzziness” I was feeling.  I continue to go to her for reflexology, even though I’ve recovered from concussion, as the treatment is so calming and relaxing.  What’s more she is good company and has an amazing pair of WARM hands!’

Angela Brassley, Ilsington, Devon

Reflexology with Roberta is quite simply the most relaxing thing I have ever come across.  Within minutes of therapy starting I sink into the deepest state of bliss and satisfaction, nothing matters anymore and all cares drop away.  By the end of the session I emerge renewed, refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to face anything the world may throw at me.

I first met Roberta when she helped my son recover from glandular fever. Her herbal remedies got me through the menopuase gently and without needing any hormone replacement. Her reflexology treatments are wonderfully relaxaing and help me to stay balanced. She is a sympathetic and wise counsellor and has become a trusted friend.

A.K., Exeter

I have been visiting Roberta for over 10 years for both reflexology and herbal treatment.  Having visited several practitioners in the past, I can say that Roberta is the best I have been treated by, especially her reflexology which is very effective and very relaxing.  I highly recommend a visit to Roberta if your body and/or mind needs support or help to repair or even just for an hour of relaxation and rejuvenation!

Reflexology with Roberta was recommended to me by an employer, after I had been suffering minor back problems on and off for years.  I cannot recommend Roberta highly enough and although the back problems no longer exist, I still visit Roberta on a very regular basis for her wonderful and relaxing treatments.  With a very busy work life I find the hour treatment from Roberta is a great way to switch my mind off , relax and rebalance.  Her friendly, understanding, non-judgemental treatments are an enjoyable experience that I would not be without now.

Human Givens Psychotherapy

I started seeing Roberta when I was going through a very difficult point of my life, starting to come to realisations about my childhood that was affecting my education and relationships with family and peers in everyday life. I benefitted from my sessions with Roberta because she enabled me to heal and move forwards from my past, and look positively towards my future with confidence.

Her approach using guided Rewinds, that allowed me to be able to more easily heal and recover from my childhood resentment and move forwards positively in my life, amending any broken relationships (friendships or families) that had been centered and caused from no longer required coping mechanisms from childhood. Her guided imagery allowed an easy transition into adulthood that required healing and accepting my past, to run smoothly, by providing tools and skills that I can use throughout my life, to ensure I remain grounded, positive and mindful. Reacting to situations in the best manner. The provided recordings on the imagery were brilliant and supportive in outside of the therapy sessions!

Her approach was brilliant, I never felt judged or misunderstood. She always understood what the best approach needed and provided peace, support, and confidence through her words, in unexplainable ways. The approach of her therapy had effects that were immediate and appeared later on after therapy.

Online sessions, in some way were more beneficial as they allowed therapy sessions to take place in the comfort of your home and easy access to recorded imagery to relisten to after the session. There never was any technical issues, and it all ran smoothly throughout my process with Roberta. Throughout each session it developed self confidence to face the future, positively and confidently.

I recommend, I’m so grateful and glad I had these sessions with Roberta.
