She is absolutely amazing. When I first started therapy I didn’t know what to expect but I have found our sessions extremely useful. Unfortunately, I’m unable to continue paying for my sessions at the moment. She has helped me deal with situations in ways I didn’t think I was capable of. It’s helped me to change my perspective on things and to just go after what I want. She has also helped me to realign with my values and given me ways on how to stick to them. Hopefully I’ll be able to start sessions again in a few months time when my financial situation has changed. I hope when that time comes she’ll still be available. I just want to say thank you so so much! You have truly changed my world perspective and my life. If you’re looking for someone who will listen to you, make you feel comfortable and help you achieve the goals you want out of therapy then Abayomi is the perfect therapist for you. I’m grateful that I’ve been able to have such a positive experience from the sessions I’ve had with her and I’m sure others will too. Again, thank you so much for your help Abayomi!
