‘My husband and I were so touched by the help and kindness you have shown to Lucy. You have been so caring to give this time and guidance.

Lucy came back looking so much more certain of herself and had clearly much appreciated her time with you. Thank you so much. I am sure her time with you is going to turn out to be one of those significant meetings in life.’ Heena
