“Comforting experience and it helps a lot. You feel like you can talk about anything and say anything that is on your mind. It makes me feel more safe with my emotions and happy that i have someone trustworthy to talk to. Janina is a really honest and trustworthy person and she helped me through many things. She gives the best advice and makes sure you are happy in every way possible. I don’t know what I would do without her”

“It has been extremely helpful and has allowed me to offload my worries and anxieties. I had never thought before that counselling could help me - I am very much a pessimist - and I’d say that it has really helped me to solve and make sense of my worries. She is the first person I’ve been able to fully trust upon meeting for about 10 years! I don’t think there is anything to improve on; everything was free-flowing and enjoyable even. Easily to anyone who is having problems then I’d recommend Janina in a second”

"Imagine being lost. I sink into this enigmatic place alone and isolated. Imprisoned here. Feeling like my existence is desultory. The evanescence of my happiness was rapid and the diatribe internal monologue I call my thoughts broke me. I was trapped in a melancholic trance for what felt like all eternity. I crumbled into a pit filled with sorrow. So I surrendered. I lay there solitary and lifeless.
Until a ray of light shone my way. So magnanimous and angelic. I was astonished by her gentle and welcoming manner. She was such a paragon to many. Lifted me and my spirit out of this hellish setting and directed me to better. Helped me extract what I already knew but had hidden under my interpretations. "Thank you" is insufficient for what you have done."
Client aged 15, May 2018
"I found it very helpful to have someone to talk to every week about different problems and things that had gone on in the week. The place was really clean and great for my parents to get to and places to sit and wait for me. I really would recommend it, it was really great and she is a very lovely lady."

"Just went to the Emotional Fitness workshop at the Y - what a friendly, relatable and helpful time! Janina offers counselling at the Maidstone Wellness Centre and just from this workshop I'd really recommend her. We all have emotional and mental health and sometimes that needs a bit of tlc - we looked at a few really simple, practical ways to help get things back into perspective and feel better again.Thanks for a really helpful and relatable workshop, I loved it. You made a fairly challenging subject really friendly =)"
