"Over the past ~13 years, Dr. Westwood has become an invaluable person in my life. Professionally, Nahid is exceptionally competent, always developing her skill set, timely, open and respectful of her patients. Personally, she is deeply caring and lovely individual, a joy to have in my life. Anyone can easily see that she loves her craft and truly wants to make a difference in people's lives and in the world over. I can not say enough good things about this woman, only that I am a better version of myself for having known her. "
"I wanted to thank you for helping me along-- I know that I am where I am largely due to you and your amazing work. I don't know whether I ever would have overcome my anxiety, deal with past demons, and get through so many other life issues if you weren't there holding my hand and encouraging me. I really consider myself blessed for having you in my life."
"really help me with my deep seated issues. Her hypnotherapy really worked wonders for me. I was having a lot of trouble letting go of my anger but she helped me confront that anger. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Westwood. She's very caring and is one of the most geniune people I've ever met. I would recommend her to anyone with a history of depression."
"I met Nahid Westwood the first time with several reservations about therapy. I had never seen anyone for my problems and so the idea of opening up to a complete stranger just seemed strange. Many of my initial impressions about therapy in general were based on what I'd heard from others. Frankly, very little seemed all that encouraging.
Which is why when I say that meeting Ms. Westwood changed my life, it sounds all the more strange to me. Because I can think of a number of rather profound ways in which it is true. I've never known anyone who so perfectly balances her extraordinary compassion with her uncanny ability to break down a problem into its constituent parts. Her open-mindedness in trying various therapies seems always in a state of forward motion; it supports my belief that she truly, continually, wants to help others, and always looks ahead to better ways to help. Some of her techniques are part of the current convention, and others are new, often evolving strategies and therapies. She seems well-aware that a single approach is not always effective therapy when dealing the burdens and complexities of a person's past and present life.
During the course of a lifetime there are probably only a few people whose influence you might say saved your life in some fashion. Dr. Westwood stands unquestionably within that small circle of influences in mine. I have recommended her to several friends. Most of them have prior experience with therapists. Each, without exception, shares my enthusiasm."
"I see a number of strengths in Nahid. She is kind, smart, has many ways/tools to approach a challenge, wants the best for me, has a plan for how to achieve that, calls me on my flaws and gives me tools to improve, and celebrates my successes"
"Thank you so much for all of the guidance and help and advice you’ve given us. I know we have lots more work yet to do but I am grateful for the tools and insights learned from you in the past year."
"Thanks for all the skills you have given us over the last year to help our relationship. We are expecting another child so we will be busy but we will stay in touch and see you as soon as we can make the time."
"I wanted to reach out to you the very belated thank you for all you did for my wife and I. we are in a good place and our ability to communicate openly has a strengthened. All of this I attribute in many ways to your insightful, patient and kind approach. Thank you and will stay in touch."
