Therapy

 
“(Aarti) was understanding, compassionate and very helpful”
(Adopter)

 

“(Jane) is a lovely lady with a soothing manor. Both my daughter and me thoroughly enjoyed every session we had. Jane has a beautiful way of making the sessions relaxing and enjoyable, which then helped my daughter to open up and communicate better. Also the pace in which we went made my daughter interact and speak freely about her thoughts without getting embarrassed.  I want to thank you for sending Jane to us because now I’m at ease knowing there is nothing to be worried about.
