"I had never spoken to a counsellor before talking to Louise so I was a bit nervous and apprehensive. In general, I find it difficult to talk about private matters. However, she quickly put me at ease and as time went on I became more comfortable sharing personal thoughts. I never felt judged or pressured to talk about things I didn't want to talk about. Louise always listened to me - she gave me space to talk and never interrupted. The events I talked about were very traumatic and I am grateful I had the opportunity to discuss them openly with someone who understands trauma and the impact it has on a person. I would like to say a big thank you to Louise for helping me."

"I have learned that I cannot sustain caring (for others) without setting boundaries / taking a break and looking after my own wellbeing. That I am important too."

"You've been someone to talk to without judgement. It's made me stronger. My head felt so fuzzy I could have killed myself. Now I am looking after myself better, which is hard, but it's better than dying. Me first. You taught me that."

"I am more confident, my thoughts are clearer and I can assess situations to take action with confidence. I have a much more positive mental attitude. I can also talk to my husband and I'm more reflective with friends - unexpected results....I've had 100's of counsellors and you were the best."
