"I first started receiving counselling from Janak in March 2018 after he was recommended to my by a friend.  At the time, I was experiencing a range of issues such as anger management, which was starting to get out of control.  Janak’s sessions were not only aimed at unpacking and analysing my issues but he also showed me some practical and easy to use techniques to manage my temper, which had instant benefits.  Janak is a very professional, trustworthy and skilled counsellor and I would certainly recommend him to anyone who was experiencing problems similar to my own."
