What Our Clients Are Saying

“My 12 year old daughter went to see Margaret as she suffers with anxiety. My daughter straight away felt at ease and not judged or made to feel different.  What I found wonderful was I was able to sit in with her during her sessions. Margaret made me, as a parent, feel so much better as I was at breaking point. After speaking to her, I didn’t feel I was alone dealing with my daughter’s anxiety. I also felt calmer and both my daughter and I were given tools to help us cope.”

“I am very grateful for the impact the session work with Liz has made for my daughter. I am so proud of the way she has intentionally built her personal resilience. If I’m completely honest, I wish I’d been able to do this at her age -took me until I was 50.”

“We would like to thank Missy for her help with our son’s anxiety. Missy really took the time to get to know our son and he felt very comfortable talking to her even over Zoom.”
