I was referred to YODA through Headspace after I realized my life was heading into a direction where by drugs were becoming a major part of my life. After ending a long term relationship everyday life was becoming a tough idea to swallow. Meeting with a person who could understand my situation and listen to what I had to say helped my development and journey through this period in my life immensely. There was no judgement or forced programs merely someone reliable and consistently there when the time was right. My counsellor is incredibly good at what they do and in my opinion created a vibe whereby I did not feel uncomfortable at all and was able to make the most out of my sessions. The program allows clients to meet in different public locations which helped not only for convenience but made me feel more relaxed and able to work through my issues with a bit more clarity.
