It was a very beneficial experience for me. The psychologist I was working with was so professional & lovely and I reached all my goals in such a short time. She provided me with great tools and techniques for creating the right mindset and I still use them every day. I think this kind of coaching is really beneficial and should be used by everyone, especially those in difficult situations. - Ekaterina, Dublin
