Client testimonials:

"fundamental change"

Choosing to have therapy at Purple House provided a fundamental change in my life. I started therapy with intense feelings of shame, self hatred and a bucket load of insecurities which felt like they were consuming my mind. I left therapy feeling nearly whole again...

"supportive & professional"

The Psychologist at Purple House was amazing. I felt safe with her from the very first session. She was supportive and professional and with her help I have been able to begin the journey back to truly living my life. She has changed my life in a very real way...

"transformed"

The Psychologist at Purple House suggested various interventions for our son which were implemented at home and at school. Following these changes, there has been a miraculous turnaround in his well-being. I can’t thank Purple House enough - our lives have been transformed!

"safe & comfortable"

I have been suffering from severe anxiety since I was around 12 years old. The decision to start psychological therapy was an extremely difficult one to make. When you suffer from such severe anxiety, it’s so crucial that you find a safe and comfortable environment...

"a lifeline"

...very quickly these weekly sessions became a lifeline for my daughter. She looked forward to her time at Purple House and was taught simple but effective tools and techniques...By the end of her time at Purple House, she was more confident, able to talk more openly with me...
