I'm a Torture Survivor!


"I'm lucky enough to have met Drs John and Eli McIntosh who have helped me to deal with the darkest part of my life.

Using the techniques of Positive Mindfulness Cognition have helped me to eliminate the nightmares out of my life. I'm like a new person and it made me really, really happy.

Life is good!"

~ Nikolai Romanov ~
