What to Write in a Thank-You Note or Card

If you are searching for some cute ways to say thank-you to a marriage/couples counselor, career counselor, admission counselor, addiction counselor, summer camp, or school/college guidance counselor; the best way to show appreciation for their help is by sending a well crafted handwritten thank-you note to them.

Although writing a thank-you note or letter to really express how thankful you are for their support and guidance can seem like a daunting task. A thank-you or appreciation letter clearly states:

  • What you are expressing gratitude for.

However if you still don’t know what to write in a thank-you card or note, here are some examples of thank-you notes, messages, quotes, and sayings that you can write in a blank card or email to your counselor to show gratitude for their guidance and concern.
