"Very helpful with the advice given, at a very difficult time for me."

Amanda Gaskin, Essex

"I can only say I’ve never been more grateful to anyone ever - I wouldn’t be free of that nightmare without Sebastian's help and support. Life is so very very different these days; it actually is a life, not a living hell! And I really cannot thank Sebastian enough.

Every inch of the way he's been an amazing support and I don’t know how I could have possibly got through this without him."
