I’ve been working with Amy for a few months now and I feel so much better. Amy has helped me develop skills I use frequently to manage day to day stress, and I can already see immense progress in my own ability to navigate the sort of challenges that brought me to start working with Amy in the first place. From the first session I felt completely able to be honest and saw large improvements really quickly.
