"Thanks for taking some time out of your busy schedule to give me some excellent information…… I can tell that you are an excellent psychologist, and the true test for me is whether I would let my own child be work with you.  In your case the answer is a resounding YES.  I cannot say the same for some of the others.

"Thank you very much for reports. These reports are excellent, especially for  xxx. It provides  support for whole further VESID process. If I have this report from very beginning, I could make him eligible for VESID and write IPE plan at the same day. Your reports are always excellent, but for this client it was just perfect  because you answered to all of my questions and even gave a lot of information which I did not request but needed it.Thanks a lot."                           ...VESID Counselor
