Many heartfelt thanks for the information and tips on how to deal with harassing calls, it took away some of the stress.
If people know there was a place like this, I believe it would help a lot of people fix their mistakes and help them get out of debt.
The counselling lifted a great weight off my shoulders.
My counsellor was very helpful and I was very comfortable with my counsellor. I never once felt intimidated or embarrassed.
I definitely felt comfortable while in the office.
Keep up the good work! I could not have survived another month and now I have a new perspective on finances.
I will highly recommend this service to other people who may need similar help.

I was very comfortable with my counsellor and I was not afraid to share my personal and financial difficulties with my counsellor.
