    "I first met Nayna about a month ago. I found her to be very friendly, easy to talk to, informative, professional and she put me at ease within minutes. Obviously as well as being a very exciting time it is also one which creates a mixture of feelings. She answered all questions in such a way that made me feel relaxed. Im so pleased I organised the visits and look forward to a long relationship with Nayna going forward"(Andrea, Jan 2010)
