Following brain injury to one of our children, Kesta supported us individually and as a family through regular sessions to come to terms with the traumatic events. Although we were nervous at the prospect, Kesta put us immediately at ease and with great patience and empathetic approach gave us the safe place to express our emotions. She also provided us with many practical self-help tools allowing us to move forward and reduce the pain. Without Kesta’s support life would not be so bright as it is now.
