"Tom is a fantastic listener. He shared insights based on his expertise and his own personal experience. He probed and helped me to process my thoughts and assess my position in a logical and structured manner, which I would not have been able to do on my own. He was able to understand my own personal priorities and my individual circumstances. He always seemed completely non judgmental and supportive."
