I started counselling in mid November when I had issues to deal with. Since then this lovely lady has been my counsellor and confidant traveling with me on a new journey. And I hope she continues to do so. An excellent listener and great at goal achievement/targets, and great at putting big issues into perspective. Would strongly recommend to anyone.
