“This support has helped me no end. I will continue to use the techniques.”

“Surprised how quickly I accessed the service. The evening calls were brilliant. Really do feel how much I have improved as I could not speak when I saw my GP, and where I am now it is spot on. I feel brilliant and I am so happy finding the old me!”

“Felt very involved in choice of treatment and care, always asked what I wanted to do, I found the leaflets and materials really helpful, it has been brilliant.”
