What our therapists say

We can tell you about the amazing things we can do for your business, but we think our therapists can tell you better. After all, what they think is what really matters.

Tracy Hampton-Smith – CBT Therapist

I was blown away

I was amazed at how quickly Josh got in touch with me, figured out what my work requirements were and then got me an interview. 24 hours from start to being offered the perfect job - I was blown away! I’d never worked with a recruiter before and was not sure about the process, but Josh reassured me and of course the speed of the process removed all my doubts.

Helen Fletcher – CBT & EMDR Therapist

Very helpful and supportive.

Chris is very helpful and supportive. He organised everything to go smoothly. Thanks, Chris!
