Helen helped me through a pretty tough time in my life, she is friendly, compassionate, down to earth and highly educated. An old soul with a lot of life experience. I enjoyed our meetings and I can say without a doubt that without her help I would still be struggling at square one. Thanks Helen

Helen is so good, she is really experienced and you can tell. She always has a rational way of explaining my emotionally charged situations and she really helps to give me perspective. She explains things straight up, no beating around the bush and says what you need to hear... One of the most effective psychologists I've come across and I value her so much. Highly recommend.

I'd like to thank Helen Gibson for all of her help, support and guidance over the last five years. I have worked with Helen on an off since 2014. I have always found Helen's kindness, compassion, empathy and understanding to be a great source of healing and support in my ongoing journey of recovery from PTSD related trauma, childhood abuse, chronic and acute anxiety disorder and clinical depression. Helen was instrumental in identifying and testing me for dyslexia (something I have struggled with all my life, but that was never picked up, diagnosed or treated). This has effected my self esteem, confidence and ability to learn. It had been a great source of shame for me all my life, particularly at school. Knowing that there is a real reason for the literacy & numerousy issues I experienced other than "Your stupid, dumb, useless, hopeless or willfully ignorant". This has allowed me to start to heal my self esteem and self worth. Helen has also made me aware of potential treatment options, including corrective, colour tinted glasses etc. NDIS - Helen has been extremely thorough in compiling a number of highly complex, comprehensive reports to the NDIS detailing my primary disabilty and it's impacts on my functional capacity to participate both socially and economically in the community. One of these reports was instrumental in informing a NDIS Review Board to overturn a previous decision to deny me access to the Scheme. Without Helen's support I may still be struggling to be assessed as being eligible to be granted access. Suicide Prevention - Helen has supported me during some very dark months over the years to prevent me from self harming and attempting suicide. I would not hesitate to recommend Helen Gibson to anyone seeking psychological services.

Helen is down to earth, realistic & has a personalized individual approach to your needs. She is warm & works tirelessly with you to help in any way possible to work through & find a solution to any issue without judgement. Helen is like no other psychologist I have ever encountered. The difference I have personally found with helen is she treats you with utmost respect & honesty which makes you feel totally at ease when attending her appointments. Helen also leaves you feeling more empowered each time you leave an appointment which is so important as a client and not just a text book case to judge & label ( which in my personal experience others seem to do very quickly generally at the first appointment without knowing the full circumstances, Attending appointments with Helen you are treated as an equal which puts you at ease as Helen is so personable & really cares this also makes her stand out as a psychologist who really has such dedication & real passion to help her clients. I personally want to thank Helen for her dedication, time, individual psychological services, kindness, care, hope & treating me & my family for a better future ahead. Without Helens help our journey would have been much harder without seeing a bright future ahead. I would recommended, & I do, to anyone who needs a psychologist for the above mentioned. Helen I want to thank you for all you do & have done for our family. With kindness & sincerity thank you so much.

Helen has been fantastic for my needs, visiting Helen feels more like going to a friends place for a chat and a cuppa and that makes the whole experience of seeking help much easier and makes the conversation flow better. Helen is also very realistic and down to earth with her advice and support. I have really enjoyed seeing her and find myself looking forward to my appointments.

my partner and I first visited Helen approx. 4yrs ago for relationship advice. Helen was amazing with how she could help each of us cope better with frustrations and how to realistically meet the other persons needs and expectations. Helen was never biased or took sides, this made it really easy for us to continue seeing Helen and dealing with our issues. I have recently returned to Helen, this time regarding PTSD that had developed from years working within the Emergency Services. Helen has truly been a godsend, she has really put things into perspective, not only for myself but my partner too. I can't recommend her enough 🙂

The life so short, the craft so long to learn.
