"I came to Antonia after 15 months of suffering extreme grief and loss and severe depression from a bad family breakdown which culminated in an attempt on my life. I was 49 yrs old. From that first meeting Antonia has listened and guided me back to a point where I am again a functioning human being. In her committment to me she wouldn't let me give up and was able to show me that glimmer of light when I was in that black hole. She has an empathy, warmth and wisdom that allowed me to feel safe to open up details of my life that I have spoken to noone else. She is honest and caring and I have comlete faith in her judgement. I live in the country 5 hrs from Brisbane and Antonia has been available to me by phone and email. In a recent crisis Antonia spent alot of time on and off all day talking to me and my family by phone to ensure I was going to be alright. I don't know if she realises how much that meant to me. After 18 months I don't see Antonia much but to know she is there for support or advice I know I never need to feel I am on my own if I'm not coping. Thank you Antonia!!!"
"I have been seeing Antonia at Chermside Medical Centre for 3 years. Antonia has a friendly personality, is a good listener, and provides a supportive Counselling environment. Antonia provides an objective viewpoint, and gives clients some practical written homework exercises to do in their own time, to assist in personal development. Antonia is helping me to manage my relationships with family and friends, to cope with workplace issues, and to develop my self confidence. With Antonia’s help, I am on my way to achieving a greater level of general wellbeing and happiness."
"Dear Antonia, I hope that you are proud of me - I need you to know that if it wasn't for your help, I would not have been able to do either of those things above - and yes, I can hear you asking the question - YES, I am proud of myself. Thanks Antonia!!! I know I still have a lot ahead of me, and will almost definately need more help, but so far, I think I am heading in the right direction - Finally!!"
"Dear Antonia, I wanted to thank you for all your assistance, support and encouragement over the past few weeks. I've only been to see you a few times but I just wanted you to know it has made a world of difference having the support of both yourself and Doctor. You both went above and beyond of what I ever expected. So thank you for everything you have done."
