"I don’t know how to put into words how much you have helped me change my life. I now truly believe I can be and am everything I thought I would never be".
"Thank you for helping me unravel me! More importantly, for safely giving me the skills to reconstruct me".
"I wanted to let you know how much you helped me to start living my life again, you have no idea how I came to value your understanding around how worthless I felt. With your help I have come to find an inner peace and sense of worth. I face things in a different way now and feel so refreshingly strong".
"I felt so at ease with you from the first time we met and you have played a major part in my beginning to believe in myself for the first time in my life. You certainly have a gift for counselling and I hope you’ll go on helping others like myself for many years to come".
"Thank you for giving me the confidence to deal with my OCD. You have helped me see that I have achieved things myself and now the sessions have ended I am able to keep going for myself ".
