  • MANNERS (John):

    I'm saddened to hear of your passing, John. I didn't know you that well but I remember fondly how quirky you were with your tales of driving to the prison in a hearse and your profound understanding of depression. I only had a couple of sessions with you but I remember you fondly. Condolences to your loved ones and all the best in your journey into consciousness.

    You walked with me through the 'dark night of the soul', holding the space, as I found my way to my authentic self. Despite personal cost, you stood by me.

    Absolutely devastated to read of John’s passing and wanted to pass on my condolences to his family and loved ones. It’s difficult to put into words just how much of an impact John had on my life as my therapist. He saved me many times over and for that I will be eternally grateful. A wonderful and gentle soul who was filled with such kindness and wisdom. Thank you dear sir for blessing my life, may you rest in peace and may your loved ones thrive in your memory.
