From a parent:
Dear Paul, We are immensely grateful for your unwavering support towards Justin [name changed] throughout these two years, especially during the recent crisis. Without your support, we wouldn't have been able to get through a very difficult period. Your sincere concerns shows us how much you care, you have been most helpful and compassionate, and helped Justin feel more confident about how to deal with his problem on a daily basis. Your counselling resulted in a noticeable change in Justin's attitude and behaviour. We know we've got some more work left to do, but we see that the future is bright as you have set the platform for Justin to soar. Thank you from the bottom of our heart. [signed]
From a young client:
Dear Paul, Thanks for helping me through. You were always there for me. You inspired me to think in the correct way and motivated me to achieve my long term goals. You have helped me develop my social skills. Now I have a lot of good friends in my new school. I hope that when you see any airplane or the aircraft model that we got for you, it reminds me that you helped me to soar. Yours sincerely [signed]
From a male client
Paul; thank you for all your help. When I first came to you I really could not work out what was happening to me or what I could do to change things. You guided me through the process so that I saw more clearly the issues I faced and what I could do. I know, as you say, I did it by myself, but without your patience and persistence it would at least have been much more difficult. I am really grateful. Thanks again.
From a female client
Dear Paul - thank you so much for staying with me through some difficult times. As I look back now it seems hard to believe I was in such a state. You taught me to take a more helpful perspective and the breathing and thong strategies were especially useful. I wasn’t sure at first about going to counselling but now I try and convince my friends to give it a try.
From a Skype client
Even though we were separated by thousands of miles, I always felt you were in the room. Thank you for all your help and support. Take care and good luck for the future.
