My nurse/therapist was excellent. She listened to all I had to say. She was very understanding and made me feel calm. After the session I felt a lot better. My therapy was great. I felt warm and relaxed. I closed my eyes and saw colours. The therapist's were brilliant and I came out feeling a lot better. Both the nurse and the complementary therapist were excellent. The course has been very beneficial. I could talk about anything and come out feeling positive
