Real stories…

  • I am quite amazed at how much better I feel about my problem in the six sessions allocated. I decided to request help as my initial issue was getting worse. A big thing for me is that I felt my Counsellor believed in me as a teacher, I knew friends and close colleagues did, but not the people who made me lose confidence in myself, it really helped me return to normal. Thank you.
