"I truly value and appreciate all that Michelle has given me. The way she has made me feel at ease, not judged me, listened to me, accepted and valued me is fantastic. The support I received has been fun, real, informative and I felt in a safe place to raise concerns and explore ideas, thank you so much"
Nicola, sons aged 8 and 6
"Michelle has given me the support, encouragement and strength to deal with some tough and challenging times and I am truly grateful"
Beth, sons aged 5, 3 and 2
"I contacted Michelle because I was constantly ‘at war’ with my teenage daughter. Implementing the practical advice Michelle gave me means that I am now able to deal with the way my daughter behaves in a much more effective way and our relationship has greatly improved. Michelle is so understanding and patient and her warmth and genuine passion for what she does really shines through."
Juliet, daughters aged 13 and 9
"Ever since I first contacted Michelle I have felt supported and encouraged. Sometimes it is very difficult to admit that you are stuck for a way to resolve a problem in your child’s life. Not only does Michelle offer invaluable advice but also helps you understand you are not alone when issues arise. When my children were struggling with grief I was so involved in the situation with them that I was unable to think straight. It was Michelle’s support and clarity on how children react to trauma that helped us all through the problems. Michelle is an extremely professional parenting coach who has a naturally therapeutic approach and I am so grateful to her for her advice and continued support in being the best parent I can be."
Kate, sons aged 18 and 14
"Michelle has taught me how to keep my cool whilst dealing with an argumentative, headstrong teenage stepdaughter, a fiercely independent two-year-old and a teething baby. It is easy to forget, when you’re deprived of sleep, how to keep everyone happy. Michelle’s techniques really prove that investing time in your children in the right way provides you with an easier life! Thank you Michelle for your very patient approach to our crazy family. Not only were the sessions useful to keep both my husband and I on the same parenting path, but the summary emailed to us after each session proved invaluable in reminding us of the techniques we needed to use."
Michelle, stepdaughter aged 13, daughter aged 2 and son aged 10 months
"After three previous people had tried to help us with some behavioural problems that we were having with our teenage daughter I was, at first, very sceptical to have another person try and help. Michelle really was a breath of fresh air. She took time to understand the family set up and dynamic and then, once she felt it appropriate, offered very clear, concise exercises and tips that we could work into our weekly routine. We still implement these now with great effect. Thanks again Michelle."
Jon, daughter aged 13, daughter aged 2 and son aged 10 months

Advertising and social media can make us feel that the way to give our children a happy Christmas is to shower them with material things. This can put an enormous strain on our finances and make Christmas a really stressful time for us. So before you buy the next Christmas gift ask yourself this question, “What do kids really want for Christmas?”
