Explanation

He was welcoming, professional & understanding & I felt as if we were old friends. He took me through various tests which I enjoyed - as they made me think in order to provide relevant answers. We also discussed life events generally. I enjoyed every minute & will happily refer anyone with mental health issues to make an appointment with him.
