Dr McCarthy has helped me through an extremely difficult time teaching me the skills I need to open with life’s challenges. Compared to the therapists I have seen in the past she understands more the specific needs of the individual and has a very practical and tailored approach to treatment. I couldn’t recommend highly enough!

I would highly recommend Siobhan; she helped me through a very difficult time. I found her warm, supportive, focussed, honest, practical & solution-oriented. I had previously seen a couple of other CBT therapists but didn't find the sessions that useful - everything was different with Siobhan & I started to see & feel the results of our work very quickly. If you're considering using her my advice would be - do it! Good luck in your journey.

I would highly recommend Siobhan. I found the sessions to be extremely helpful across a number of facets. Siobhan is very patient and understanding, but still challenges you when required. I have taken away a number of tools to help go forward which I now use in all aspects of my day to day life.

Dr Mccarthy provided me with the tools I needed to spot unhelpful behaviour patterns and rationalise my thoughts at times of anxiety. I can now access these tools when needed and apply them to everyday situations. Her CBT practice was welcoming and open and with gentle suggestions and encouragement I have found a better balance within myself for which I am very grateful.

I saw Siobhan regularly for a number of sessions and always looked forward to going. I really valued her opinions and balanced views. Some techniques I found hard to implement, but Siobhan kept trying and didn't judge. I valued our sessions and would recommend her to anyone trying to cope with difficult issues & chronic conditions.

Really friendly. Really helpful. Helped me understand the causes of my anxieties and negative behaviours. A very positive, awakening, as it were.

My mum and I went to see Dr Siobhan McCarthy as we needed some help with our relationship as mother and daughter. The sessions have been invaluable and our relationship has improved immensely. I have learnt so much about myself, my family system and this in turn has had a positive effect on all of my relationships, it’s been truly life changing. I can’t recommend and thank Dr Siobhan MaCarthy enough for her wonderful work.

My wife and I spent time with Siobhan who helped us communicate much more effectively and constructively. She enabled us to strip away layers of emotional detritus that had built up over years of our marriage and focus on our strengths as a couple and a family. Siobhan was always focused on getting us to concentrate on the real issues and we are much happier asa result of spending time with her.

I came to see Siobhan after separating from my ex wife. Her help has been critical in making the correct decisions and managing difficult situations through a very difficult period of my life. She understood me, never judged and always came up with creative and practical life skills that worked for me. My life is now back on track, I am happily remarried, have secured good access to my son and I am settled in a job I enjoy. Thank you Siobhan!

Seeing Siobhan was my first experience seeing a therapist to deal with my anxiety, and I would highly recommend her to any others. I felt comfortable to talk about anything, and she always encouraged me to challenge my self doubt and intrusive thoughts. Going forward, I believe I have the tools I need to deal with this part of my life, so that hopefully it won't take over it so much, and I wouldn't have that if it weren't for Siobhan. I am very thankful for the experience and would encourage anyone else who is struggling to seek her out.

I tried two therapists before seeing Siobhan and she was head and shoulders above the others. I've seen her for a long period with some gaps and in that time have come through difficult episodes of depression, when at times I was fearful I would never recover. Through working together with Siobhan I now feel confident I have the tools to bring me through low periods and live life in a much more joyful, balanced and positive way. My husband and I also had some joint counselling. Siobhan is warm, perceptive, constructive and truly expert in her field. She's made an enormous difference to my life and to my family. I'd recommend her hugely.
