“Coming to Yvonne Allen after my partner passed away was a difficult and scary decision. But Elaina took a lot of care in helping me feel comfortable about going on dates and gave me the confidence I needed to learn to enjoy each one. I realised that it wasn’t so much about looking for love but having the opportunity to meet new people, enjoy their company and just have some fun. I have met some lovely people and continue my program after 6 months with a better understanding of myself and a better appreciation of how to make the most of the opportunity. I would really like to thank Elaina and Yvonne Allen for being patient with me and showing me how to be more open in my approach to meeting new and different people and continuing in helping me to do that.”
