    Dr John Moran helped me a great deal in overcoming a particularly difficult period of my life. He helped me find the clarity I needed to made better judgements and also helped me understand how they were impacting others around me. He broke things down into logical thought processes and helped me to put into perspective the problem I was having. I would have no issues recommending him to anyone going through a difficult period in their lives. Jon

    It was a good experience that really help me out with my issues, I felt very comfortable to talk about myself and the feedback was what I expected. Done it for the first time and will be back again to keep improving.

    John Moran is a great therapist, he is able to quickly get to the bottom of issues and is able to frame them in a way that provides new perspective to the patient. He is kind, compassionate but also challenging when he needs to be, which is just what I needed and his approach has helped me greatly in the few weeks that I have been seeing him. I look forward to our sessions although they are not always easy for me, and I feel like I am making progress. I would highly recommend John Moran as a therapist.

    Dr Moran made me feel very relaxed. He quickly understood my problem and made me feel like all my problems were going to go over time. He generally was excellent – I’ve had counsellors before, so I’ve found Dr Moran to be the best I’ve had!
