*Testimonial* “Prior to coming to Jessie R I thought I was self aware and well informed in the field of well-being and trauma, after all I had read every book you can think of, been to therapy, I practiced yoga and meditated. I thought I had worked through my ‘stuff’ and was good at looking after myself in terms of physical mental emotional and spiritual health. I had just been through an extremely stressful few years personally and professionally, with covid too as well as caring for sick parents and suffering from stressed family dynamics. I kept myself level headed throughout all of this. I was finally coming out the other end hoping to get back some sort of normality and to concentrate on myself. And then out of nowhere (or so I thought) I had an unexpected health problem which made me very poorly requiring several months off work. There was no way of escaping what my body was trying to tell me now (and had been telling me my whole life). At this point the Universe sent me Jessie R.

I was ‘fine’ but my body was experiencing the effects of not being ‘fine’.  Oh the irony and cliche of a highly functional intellect. With Jessie R the real nitty-gritty deep work gets done with lightness of slow unfolding and little or no re-living of trauma or pain. There is a focus on safety always. Knowing something intellectually is not the same as embodying it and that it one of the biggest lessons I have taken away. Sounds simple but it was not for me. For years I had been disconnected to my body, living in my intellect and knowledge. I learned through 4 short months of hard work that my body is so incredibly powerful, knowing and sensate. Tuning into this superpower is now my biggest superpower. It has helped me see reality clearer, understand my primary relationships better, set boundaries in a more realistic and robust way, know that my voice matters and that I matter. I now embody this mantra whereas before they were just words in my head. My heart has definitely expanded.

Jessie R has a very unique approach, one has to experience it in order to understand it, there are no words to describe her magic as it unfolds (including the look on her face when you know she knows you are re-wiring old habits)! Within just 4 months of working with Jessie, I now have a toolkit for navigating life in a more emotionally authentic and safe manner where my voice, my being and I matter. I honestly believe and feel I have re-wired my brain and am experiencing a new way of be-ing. This gift Jessie R, aka Little Yoda, has given me is priceless. Thank you for the gift of knowing myself better, in deep gratitude of your wisdom and energy in this lifetime and beyond.

If you want to change and improve your life from a deeper level, I would highly recommend Jessie R time and time again.” M.J.

*Testimonial*  “Before I found Jessie on southasiantherapist.org and began my first therapy session with her, I would often find my mind stuck in the past. I was easily triggered by my environment and felt constantly overwhelmed by everyday tasks. Despite being safe, I was still only surviving. I was unable to function, because of the nightmares that followed those stressful days.

Within just 8 sessions, with Jessie’s help, I’ve learned how to train my mind, body to feel safe and to remain in the present. My sleep has improved tremendously and I finally feel comfortable looking ahead and working on my future instead of letting my past weigh me down. For the first time I feel safe exploring my individual being. Thanks to Jessie’s support, I feel as if my real life has just begun.” M.G.

*Testimonial* There is a common misconception that trauma is only for extreme situations but coming from a South Asian background I think we are all exposed to more trauma than we realise and it is important that this is recognised.

When I reached out for help and started my sessions with Jessie I was frequently being triggered, either in a state of anxiety or depression, and none of my coping tools were helping me.

I felt at ease with Jessie from the first call. I was made to feel safe, secure, assured that my feelings were valid and it was clear that there was no judgement. During my 8 sessions I was able to give my inner child a voice and speak about my past traumas without going too deep. I was offered valuable coping tools, strategies, taught stabilisation & safety techniques and slowly, finally, began to release the past.

I initially reached out to help manage my low days but I gained so much more. I briefly mentioned my new business venture to Jessie, she then coached me to identify my blind spots, unlock my self imposed limitations, and insight which really empowered me. I started to clear blocks I didn’t even realise I had.

I feel stronger, more in tune with myself and for the first time in years, feel like I am baggage free.

Jessie’s help and support has been invaluable, I found her to be a professional and down to earth Trauma therapist. In each of my sessions I was always met with warmth, kindness, compassion and offered so much support.

Going to therapy is the best investment I’ve ever made. I am grateful I chose Jessie as I gained so much more than I ever expected!

Mental health will always be something I manage but I have better tools and awareness now – thank you Jessie for helping me find my voice and come back to myself. H.P.

*Testimonial*  “Prior to commencing therapy with Jessie R, I was depressed.  I’d been taking antidepressants for over 3 years and I was working in an unfulfilling job.   Within less then 6 months, with the non-judgemental, therapeutic support from my highly skilled therapist Jessie R, I have been empowered to come off my anti-depressants and I’ve started a new job, within a company that values me and my skills.  I felt that Jessie R implicitly understood me and believed in my inner potential from the beginning.  This has immensely helped me to feel more confident as a person and assertive in myself.  I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and the new me is emerging ” G.R.

*Testimonial*  “I met Jessie R when  I was struggling with a combination of anxiety, obsessive compulsive thoughts, lack of confidence and confusion in myself. Jessie R gave me the permission to express these emotions naturally in the sessions and she made me realise I was OK and fully human. Jessie R provided a tailored insight in how to address these overwhelming feelings and I built myself back up using the techniques she put forward. I also came off antidepressants during that time too, from being on them for 11 years and she supported me throughout the process and will no doubt, continue too. During the short time that I have known Jessie R, she has been empathetic, reassuring and so kind, warm and respectful towards my needs. She truly is very talented at what she does and has changed my life in such a short space of time. I am thankful every day for her support, it is invaluable”  L.E.
