I have felt very comfortable in sharing my thoughts, my fears, my struggles and my dreams and have appreciated her support and encouragement. I highly value her empathy and intuitiveness as she skillfully assists me to be the best person I can be. Engaging in counselling with Sue has been a remarkable journey of hope and healing.”
"I didn't really know what to expect when the appointment was set up. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the time with Sue Genest, probably because we were on the same wave-length on all of the topics covered and she was so comfortable and supportive that it didn't seem like she was gathering information at all; more like a conversation with a good friend. I highly approve of and would recommend her technique.”
