Cara is a wonderful councillor and gives support, encouragement and gentle guidance where needed. She is a great listener and is amazing in her ability to keep track of complex and drawn-out issues yet focus on what is needed in that session, gently directing me to the best outcome. Always with a smile and encouragement and she brings a lighter mood to me in the process.
