Client Testimonials

Compassionate EMDR-centred therapy to help process and integrate past trauma so you can find your spark of joy again

Jenna, Coleambally NSW

I have known Sonia Skewes for over 18 years. We met when she was hairdressing many years ago. Sonia is a hardworking and dedicated person, she is loyal and very trustworthy. Sonia has helped me in some stressful situations and with guidance and balance.

Fran, Leeton NSW

She will listen to you and offer sound advice. Over the years of knowing Sonia she has always remained the same. Never judgmental, accepting of everyone, kind, empathetic and caring. She has studied for many years, all the while juggling raising a family and working. Sonia is the real deal, not just following what she has read or studied. You know that she knows what she’s talking about. But the best thing about Sonia is she makes you feel safe, secure and that she has your best interests at heart.

Tammy, Devonport TAS

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Sonia in a mental health setting. Sonia is warm, authentic, organised practitioner. She is community minded and holistic. Patients would be safe in her care.

Vickie, Yenda NSW

I have had the privilege of working alongside Sonia in two different organisations over approximately 4 years. Sonia is the most passionate, caring and dedicated human I have ever known. She not only gives of herself to the clients she works with but passionately with her colleagues as well. Sonia has been the glue that holds everything together in difficult situations. Sonia has taught me so much whilst working with her and brings calm, dedication and professionalism to each and every situation.

Major Tuesday McCall The Salvation Army, Goulburn, NSW

I had the privilege of meeting Sonia 18 years ago in Leeton. I have always found her to be compassionate, patient and empathetic with all people within her teams and the greater community and always worked hard to help them see their value, strength and worth so that they are equipped to help themselves add value to their living circumstances, personal confidence and self-worth. I’m so excited to hear she is stepping out on her own and I know that anyone who engages with her will find it life changing.

Vicki, Nericon NSW

Sonia was a great inspiration for me to act and make the necessary changes in my life that I needed. This has improved my wellbeing- both mental and physical. Enjoying life.

Iris, Whitton NSW

I’m so happy to learn you have started private practice and pleased for the well-being of your future clients who probably don’t know just how well qualified you are. You have so many wonderful qualities that so many lack. That is, personal experience, empathy, love and kindness which is balanced by your natural groundedness and common sense. I remember years ago when we first met as collaborative partners from our various agencies and supporting quite a few shared clients. I often thought to myself what a joy it was to work with you, and delighted with the positive outcomes from that partnership. I admired (and still do) your compassion, trustworthiness and reliability in both a professional and personal capacity. I wish you every success in the future.

Leonne, Leeton NSW

I have known Sonia for around 20 years personally and professionally. Sonia is the most genuine friend I have known, and her business skills are outstanding. All courses that Sonia’s achieved has been done with the highest level. I would not hesitate in recommending Sonia’s private practice to the community.

Belinda, Wagga Wagga NSW

Sonia is a warm and passionate person who has a knack for connecting with people, especially young people. She provides personable support with a kind and caring nature while remaining professional and committed to achieving great outcomes alongside the people she supports.

Melody, Narrandera NSW

I have known Sonia for over a period of 6 years in my work as a wellbeing social worker in the Department of Education. Sonia partnered with me to help provide group sessions for some students and we developed an instant alliance in helping our young people. Sonia always delivered our programs with empathy, understanding and compassion as well as promoting resilience and healing to the students. Sonia combined fun learning techniques to her therapy group sessions with relevant activities and age-appropriate conversations. I miss having the opportunity to work with Sonia since she has moved interstate.
