“A lovely lady who seems to know a lot! Very caring and seems determined to get to the root of your problems and give you a better quality of life (this was a Parkinsons Disease issue). Very understanding and very easy to understand when she explained what was going on and the best course of action. Such a helpful session in only 30 minutes and wish we had found her years ago. Feel very much more optimistic being under her care. Highly recommend.“
