I would highly recommend Renie to anyone, or any organisation that is looking to address the psychological needs …


I wanted to write and thank you, for changing my life. I don’t think you will ever completely understand what you have done for me.

The therapy has been so helpful to me, it was made clear to me that I had to invest in my journey, which I did, but Renie was supportive every step of the way. The therapy has made a real difference to my every day life. Can’t speak highly enough of …
