"We are a set of 32 year old identical twin males. The joint youngest of 6 kids, we endured trauma from an alcoholic parent at a young age. Despite being as close as we thought we were, our 20s brought in a slew of mental health issues with each other that went unchecked for years. In a make or break moment, we decided we should seek twin therapy.

And we are so glad we did. Audrey is an expert on all things twin and helped us learn more about being twins ourselves. Every identical twin should seek counselling with each other - and there's no one safer to do this with than Audrey. She helped us find peace and learning in a way we cannot describe. To have even considered this positive outcome when we were in our darkest places felt impossible, but it's not. It was all possible.

Please, if you're reading this and are a twin, do not hesitate to contact Audrey. But be prepared to put the work in and know that it's worth it in the end - because you get to function harmoniously with your twin.

We've finished our main bout of sessions with Audrey - but will definitely be topping up in the future if things start to feel tough again.
