"It is essential to point out that this help (meetings with the mentor) came on time. Six months have passed since the beginning of this acute crisis in Ukraine, and my internal reserves have been significantly diminished. I felt critical problems of adaptation and partial loss of identity. However, thanks to work (with the mentor), I feel strong for myself and my clients."
