You may remember my name, as a client you had some years ago. I have been meaning to write you for some time to let you know of the lasting impression you made on me.
Since I have left your counselling, there have been many times that I have asked myself how would Barbara suggest that I handle this or that situation. In relation to a current issue, I remember you saying that you couldn't change how a person acts, you can only change how you would react to their action. It seems such a self-evident thing, yet sometimes it needs to be pointed out by a third party.
As well as that, I have often asked myself, what question would Barbara ask here. As often as not, the question is one of self-examination, as in why, precisely, am I disappointed/frustrated/happy/sad/emotional about whatever is current. The answer, (if not illuminating) at least allows me to deal with it in a more appropriate way.
Having had the advantage of your counselling, I am very pleased to tell you that I think it has made me a better person. Although I tend to let whatever issue get the better of me before I ask myself "What would Barbara say/suggest here?", I am striving to ask myself that query earlier in a given situation.
Barbara, I am very pleased that I had the help of your advice and that I continue to be helped by it. I sincerely hope that you & your family are well.
