My teenage daughter was going through an extended mental health emergency. Ven helped me to understand how she may be thinking and recommended books that brought me to a better understanding of the situation. I tend to do well with cognitive therapy and so these resources informed my mind so that I could at least relax a little and in turn, help my daughter to find resources. She had a variant of BPD, and today she is doing better though she still has some difficult times. What Ven did was to help me identify what I could do to help myself, because my daughter’s condition really affected my wellbeing. I looked forward to my appointments with him because he is a good listener and he is caring.
