First of all, thank you Alexandra for your support when I needed it. Sometimes it is wise to reach out for help and find someone caring to help us move forward. That is what you will find in Alexandra's sessions, with no judgment and a lot of empathy.
I initially chose Alexandra because I wanted a bilingual English-French person. I live in the US so everything was done online because of the remoteness. After only 3 sessions, the phobia subsided enormously, which allowed a difficult dental intervention to be done in much better conditions and with much more confidence, despite heavy past trauma. A big thanks for these sessions! I highly recommend Alexandra Dobbs whether online or in person. It should also be mentioned that your collaboration in the treatment is necessary.
"Well-being and serenity! "
I had several sessions with Ms Dobbs for sleeping disorders and anxiety following a dog attack. Her help was more than precious to me: I feeling good again and serene in my daily life. After each session, I received the detailed breathing exercises to do at home! Thank you for your kindness and the quality of your work.
