I found Florence a fantastic support during a difficult time. Her straightforward approach was exactly what I needed to gain a greater clarity and perspective on the situation and provided me with a space to work out my next steps. I wouldn't have believed beforehand how helpful the counselling could have been. It was a real lifesaver and Florence is brilliant.
