“I couldn’t have done it without you”

 

Thank you for your help and guidance. I don’t know where I would have been if I hadn’t come to see you. I am now back to the person I was meant to be and I finally feel closer to the light at the end of the tunnel. I couldn’t have done it without you.

“The difference from the first session to the last was vast”

 

I wanted to thank you for everything you did to help me come to terms with my loss. For being such a personal issue I felt completely relaxed and able to open up. The difference from the first session to the last was vast and didn't go unnoticed by family and friends. Thanks for everything.
