Emma was able to engage our daughter from the very first session and maintain her interest in subsequent sessions. Emma is a great communicator with our daughter, our family and the school. We have always felt that our daughter is complex, but with Emma's assistance we are on a journey where the child and our family are being supported and educated. It's life changing stuff for us!
I cannot recommend Emma highly enough. She is warm, compassionate and caring. From the very first session she was able to establish rapport with our anxious daughter and very quickly identify the issues that needed to be addressed. She has taught her effective strategies to manage her worry, and provided us as parents with step-by-step techniques to deal with specific behaviours and situations. Emma is patient, generous with her time and extremely knowledgeable. She has guided us through some challenging times, and is readily available to give support and encouragement. She is so easy to talk to, and her advice is always practical and reassuring. She has made such a difference to our lives and really put us back on the right track. As a result, we feel the outcome for our daughter will be positive one and we are so grateful to Emma for that.
Our son was experiencing difficulties at school and home with attention issues. Eventhough he was keeping up with his school work according to his report, we felt we were missing something. Emma was amazing with him. Not only did she have some simple strategies to help with school, we also had some answers we needed to help him at home. This year in his own words he's "having the best year." His teacher has a full report and a better understanding of his learning needs and we have a 9 year old who loves going to school to learn.
