‘It helped so much to talk. I felt you understood me – you listened without judging me, and that made all the difference.’
‘I could be my true self with you.’
‘I’ve seen two other counsellors and they didn’t help – I didn’t want to try again. But my friend convinced me, and I’m so glad they did. It’s been different with you.’
‘You’ve been very kind.’
‘I liked the way you challenged me and always had faith there would be a way through.’
