“I’m very grateful that you were friendly, approachable and put me at ease.  I like the way we had set goals as this gave the process structure.  I like how you gave me something to think about before the next session as that allowed me to further engage in the process outside of meetings.  You were able to remember everything that was important to me which really gave me faith in you as I knew you were listening and understanding.  Having had counselling with you, my life is now undoubtedly better.  I’m truly very thankful” (ML – June 2018)
