KIND WORDS from clients

"Your counselling has truly made me see so many areas in my life from a different perspective.  My attitude and knowledge of how to nurture my body with food has had a ripple effect on my outlook of my world.  Thank you for this precious gift, Val.  You are truly a treasure."    Maggie R., Maple Ridge, BC
"Thank you for understanding and for believing in me and for helping me to believe in myself/follow my intuition again!  Truthfully I was expecting you to be totally the opposite as that is what I have known in the past and you weren't and it seriously brought tears to my eyes, to experience that level of kindness, gentleness, care and understanding. When you are that way with me I can learn to do like that with myself."  Shelley T., Abbotsford, BC
