I had sudden insights in my conversations with Carol that accelerated my progress in ways that would not otherwise have occurred or would have happened more slowly without her. I deeply relaxed in her presence and was able to get rid of some stupid habits. I did suddenly emerge with a plan and an image of my future, which integrated several aspects of my life. Things seem easier for me now than they did before we worked together. I was able to end the sessions without drama and fanfare, and believe I gained a great deal from meeting with her over the past winter.
