"I just wanted to let you know about the counselling I have been having with Agnieszka. I wanted to make it known that she is doing an amazing job. She is still studying but I feel that she is an expert and that she has been doing this for a long time. Her persona makes me feel relaxed and it doesn't feel as if she is doing a job, but that she is caring from her heart as a friend. Already I feel stronger. "
