1. Francesca immediately gets to heart of the matter…

    Francesca immediately gets to heart of the matter. She clearly showed how being shamed and bullied as a child fostered my lack of self-worth as an adult, leading to poor decisions and ultimately addiction. It scares me to death to think what my life would be like today had I not reached out for help.

  2. Thank you so much Francesca…

    Francesca really and carefully listens to what it is I have to say. She is able to translate it and help me see how I can better myself with actions and thoughts I can relate to. As tough as it is to take the step of seeking help, it turned out that she was exactly what I needed, understanding and not overbearing.
    Thank you so much Francesca!

  3. Without Francesca’s help, I’d be lost…

    I came to see Francesca as my drinking was bringing out the worst of me; in fact, thanks to Francesca’s amazing help, we discovered that I have been dealing with mental abuse and guilt from a 23 year marriage. I am still working on dealing with my guilt and hurt but without Francesca’s help, I’d be lost. Thank you Francesca, you are a real pro!

  4. She helped me understand how to deal with my feelings…

    I have recently moved to BC and found Francesca through their website. I had met with her only a couple times, but felt as though I had had years of sessions with her. She helped me understand how to deal with my feelings and helped me realize I am who I am and there is nothing wrong with that!  Francesca also shared her CD with me – which I use quite frequently. It really helps me relax and focus after a long hard day at the office!

  5. I would highly recommend Ms.Tomas…

    After losing many friends because of my anger and drinking problems, I had the good fortune to find Francesca Tomas and her counselling service. This gifted lady, with her gentle questioning, was able to get to the route of my problems. I am well on my way to recovery. I would highly recommend Ms.Tomas to anyone looking for professional counselling of this nature.

  6. I am eternally grateful to Francesca for the tools she has taught me…

    There are no words to describe how much counseling has helped me in my life. I was your typical guy, able to deal with all problems in life. Whenever a situation came up, I was able to do it all on my own without help. Asking for help was a weakness, and being a guy, you can’t appear weak. How wrong I was. The only thing I was doing was hanging on to everything and having my life spiral out of control. Instead of dealing with all the problems associated with everyday life, I was bottling my problems up, and letting them affect all aspects of my life. With the help of Francesca, I was finally able to see how much of the problems were actually caused by me, and how to deal with them properly, instead of having them contribute to everyday life. I am now able to be a positive influence in my own life, and the lives of my wife and children. We are all able to move forward in a positive way and support each other, instead of constant fights and unhappiness. Without Francesca’s help, I don’t know if I would even be here today. If I could give anyone one piece of advice in life, it would be to make that call and give it a chance. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Reaching out is not a weakness but a strength, and I am eternally grateful to Francesca for the tools she has taught me and the life she has given back to me. I have finally learned to like – and love – myself again, and am able to pass that on to others.

  8. She has helped me become a stronger person…

    I was going through a very hard time in my life, having a mom who was an alcoholic and addict, and having 3 “dads” who had walked out of my life because of my mom. I knew I needed to talk to someone, but I am young, therefore was extremely scared and nervous to seek therapy. I searched online for some help because I was embarrassed and didn’t want to ask anyone where I should look. I luckily stumbled upon Francesca’s website and emailed her. The first time I met her, she was so welcoming and friendly. I loved the environment of her workplace as it made me feel safe – like no one was judging me. I met with Francesca 7 or 8 times and she helped me transform my emotions. She has helped me become a stronger person to say the least. She is the type of person you wish you could have in your everyday life and not only as your therapist! She truly has impacted my life for the better. Down the road if I ever need some advice or counselling, she will again, be the person I run to. Thank you so much Francesca, I don’t know where I would be today without you.

  9. It is never too late to feel better about yourself…

    At first, I was very skeptical about counselling because nothing else seemed to work. I had another counsellor to deal with my lifelong anxiety and depression. I was lost and had no hope for the future. Then, I met Francesca and it all changed in a matter of months. I have never felt better in my life and now have the skills and outlook to have a better, happier life. I can confidently say going to see Francesca has been one of the best decisions of my life. If you have some issues, big or small, Francesca can help you overcome them. It is never too late to feel better about yourself and your life.
