For this I am thankful and pleased that we talked and that you shared your knowledge and kind demeanor with me.”

    Would be great if you had a way to email or call you to discuss further most people would not just buy a therapy session of someone they had never had any contact with.

      Thank you so much for your helpful comment, Thomas. I agree with you, people would need to talk with me somehow. My phone number is at the bottom of the blog page you referred to, but I’ve just added it closer to the top of the page as well. There are also two links to my NVC business website. I hope this helps.
