"Somehow your work sessions don't seem like work, in fact they are really rather enjoyable, but you do get a R E S U L T, which is much appreciated."

"As ever, with a light touch and unobtrusively, you were extremely helpful and very accurate in helping us to deal with our situations at work, in the context of our lives more generally."
The Revd Canon John L Smith, Bishop's Officer and Director of Education, Diocese of Rochester
