Testimonial

The day I got burst out, due to my personal problems and stress , I tried to approach many psychologists, at that moment I was badly in need of a person with whom I could share my feelings which had gone beyond my control, but none of the psychologist had patience to listen to me over

I like that the sessions are self-paced, there’s no judgements, it’s an open space for you to talk and get advice or mechanisms that you can use and implement in your life to help you help yourself and become independent.
