“Dealing with Nick Gwynn from Breathe Counselling Perth has been an absolute pleasure.
Nick cares about clients and is a very capable counsellor. Highly recommended!”
“Before my session with Ryan I was highly stressed, anxious and losing sleep as a result of a recent event. I had never participated in counselling before and was very hesitant to. However, after one session with Ryan I felt my stress and anxiety practically disappear. I was so comfortable throughout the entire session and Ryan helped to understand my situation in a way that gave me complete clarity and control over my actions. Not only did Ryan help during the session, he also provided me with tools and exercises that could be used to treat these feelings when needed. I cant recommend Ryan an Breathe Counselling enough! It can be daunting booking your first counselling session, but I guarantee that discomfort and stress will drop away as soon as the session begins.”
“Ryan has been a modest professional from the start of our journey. His knowledge of counselling is vast and extensive. He has assisted us in completely turning around our relationship. We now communicate openly and search for meaning with our actions. No truer word said that if everyone went to counselling before issues arise the world would be a much better place. I would recommend him to every one and anyone cannot recommend highly enough.”
“Highly recommend! I had Lovina for couple and individual counselling and she did a great job listening, understanding and
addressing issues so they can be worked on!”
“I went to see Nick on short notice when I’d hit rock bottom and my Marriage was in tatters. I needed help with relationships and to work on myself emotionally, something I’d never even contemplated having issues with. Nick was kind and comforting,
He gave me clarity and help with direction and I’ve found the sessions life changing in a absolutely positive way.
Thanks Nick. I recommend Breathe Counselling to anyone in need of an extra hand to guide you through times in need.”
“Breathe Counselling has helped me tremendously through my journey to healing and finding myself. From setting what was previously non-existent boundaries with my family to healing deep wounds sustained as a child. Today I am a stronger person with healthy boundaries who has grown in the confidence to have a voice for myself, all through the help of Nick and Joanna. I would highly recommend Breathe Counselling Perth to anyone who is looking for support or guidance through difficult times, or even starting on your own journey to healing. Their approach was amazing and took away that feeling of trying to put the
pieces of your broken puzzle together on your own.”
“Nick is trustworthy, an excellent listener, and he creates a very safe space for discussing sensitive personal matters. My husband and I went for relationship counselling and we both feel we received so much more than we anticipated. Nick took each of us on a journey of self-empowerment within the scope of the relationship counselling, and we both came out the other side happier people. Over a year later our relationship still sees the benefits of our sessions with him. I highly recommend”
