“I cannot begin to tell you how much you have helped through this difficult time. You have made me see things in a new way through finding out that I have far more integrity and determination than I ever imagined. It has felt so good to realise I have my own self worth and person rights and although my situation at work continues, I certainly feel more empowered to deal with it”

“I found your advice very helpful. I was scared of what I might hear when I first started the sessions but I think that you just made me realise that what I knew I had to do deep down was achievable and I was capable of taking control of my own issues”
