Rob J

John S

Karen (Holt) you have helped me overcome my fear of snakes so easily, I can now walk out in the grass without always being fearful.

Kerry B

Thanks so much Karen (Holt) for your sincerity, you have put me back on the right path instead of trying to escape with the use of alcohol.

Thanks (Karen Holt) for listening and helping with my problems, I had the most relaxing holiday ever - no trouble sleeping even in the confined space and with company. I have also lost over 10 kg's and I don't panic so much if things go wrong.
