  • Hi Helen, as your work with me is now coming to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support.  As time went on, I grew to trust your judgement and advice 100%, particularly around keeping emotions out of the response emails etc. and focusing on the facts and figures. Be assured that I would have no problems in recommending you to friends should the need arise. Thanks, P

  • I just thought I would send you this as I wanted to say thank you to you as having met you at Southwell the other day after feeling so upset  I wanted to say how incredibly helpful, approachable and understanding your support has made me feel and that there is light at the end of the tunnel with what’s happened. People are always so quick to complain and I felt it important to say thank you to you…so thank you so much Helen.
