'I was blown away by the positive and profound effects from the very first session – it was as if a light had been turned on and suddenly I could see everything so much more clearly. While the Awareness Centre came highly recommended, this was my first experience with therapy and I really wasn’t expecting such a constructive and life-changing effect.'
