‘"Francis is an inspirational man. I think I would be dead without him, but now my life is so rich. How can I thank him enough.”
‘“I dread to think where I would be if I hadn’t been recommended to see Francis. My addictions were ruining me and my life- My marriage had disintegrated and my health and finances were in ruin. Francis knew what I was going though and helped me believe in myself- he was brutally honest but allowed me to have hope again. It was a tough journey- and I’m still on it, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and know I am on my way. I wouldn’t have got here without his support, understanding and care. I have immense gratitude.”
“Seeing Francis over the past two years has given m the clarity to recreate myself and my life. I now realise that much of how I was was not really mine- but beliefs I had carried form my upbringing. I have been steadily shedding them and feel much more “myself” no. Its been an enlightening and life-affirming process. He is a wonderful therapist . I feel blessed to have worked with him.”
