"Raspal Khumra has been providing services to my client form 'Mind Australia- community mental health' for 3 years
In my collaboration with Raspal I have found her to professional, thorough, highly skilled, and client centred. The services offered by Raspal have enabled and coached my client to make significant changes towards wellbeing for her life and specifically become more competent at managing her activities of daily living. Specific work has included supporting my client to re organise her home , reduce significant clutter, understand the impact of hoarding , embrace strategies for change and manage impulse control. Due to this my client accommodation is now stable and is not at risk of eviction. My clients has expressed to me many times how support received from Lighten Your Load has been significantly life changing for herself both in regaining control of her home environment and in becoming efficient at managing stress. I cannot recommend engaging Lighten Your load services more highly for where support and assistance for recovery based change is required."
