I was referred to Di through my employer due to experiencing some recent and long standing challenges in my personal life; ranging from difficult personal relationships to my relationships with drugs and alcohol. Di has an excellent capacity to show warmth and compassion in her approach to her work without appearing patronising or insincere. I instantly warmed to her as she sensitively broke down any initial barriers I may have put up in response to receiving counselling. Di completely understood my needs and was able to reflect these back to me in a way that was enlightening but also challenging in the right way. The level of clarity I have gained about my responses to stressors in life; both behaviourally and emotionally has been invaluable and has really set me up in going forward in life, making positive changes that I am in control of and responsible for. Di is professional, has great underpinning knowledge and treats what you say and who you are with respect and complete confidence. This has been a very empowering experience for me; one that I will always be able to draw strength from. Thanks Di for this experience, your sensitive and empathic approach has been invaluable, and it's one that'll continue to affect me positively in the future. All the best, Andy
