First of all, I would like to say thank you for giving me such a patient therapist. I was very impressed with my time with him. Today I am beginning to feel confident again and able to maintain positive personal changes around my behaviour and attitude. Thanks again.

I felt very lost and hopeless when i started seeing Lesley. Our weekly sessions helped me to understand and accept my past. I am now a new me, who deals better with anxiety and enjoys life. I highly recommend Lesley to anyone seeking therapy.
