'I do not know where the last six months have gone, but what a journey! I cannot thank you enough for all your help and support. My time spent with you each week has impacted on my life greatly and I will always be thankful for meeting you. This is not the end of my journey-but merely the beginning for me to put into practice everything I've learned.'   

'You held my hand through my journey of pain. I thank you for that. You provided me with a safe place. I thank you for that. You helped me explore the questions and deep, deep feelings of pain, anger, hurt. I thank you for that. You allowed me to weep, talk, question myself from past to present until the smile came back...I thank you for that.'   

'Jill, you are amazing! Thank you.'   

Thank you so much Jill, you have changed my life.'   

Dear Jill,
Thank you so much for our sessions together. I really liked  working with you. I appreciate your honesty, your natural laughter, your authenticity. Thank you for listening and for teaching me various tools to understand human interaction, including the parent/child/adult and drama 
triangle frameworks. I love that we were able to arrive at  some of my truths together. Thanks for standing by me as we sifted through some of the intellectual stuff to get to some of the emotional.  
You asked if you were helpful. My answer is a resounding  yes.  
Sincere regards,

Looking back at my journey in South Korea, I think I was able to make the best of my last couple of months thanks to the strategies that you taught me along with our weekly conversations. Thank you for having such a positive impact on my life Jill!

Originally I trained and worked for twenty years as a Primary Teacher. I majored in Creative Arts and Special Educational Needs.

I work creatively to help them to explore their issues and support them to create plans for a bright new future.
