WHAT OTHERS SAY

I felt so much calmer tonight and had a wonderful ‘Son and Mom' date as we watched a film together. He was so affectionate and back to his charming self. Proof that I need to always approach him with a sense of calm and love. Thank you again for everything you've done!

It's always good to hear Simone's workshops - even after all this time - because it sinks in deeper and deeper, new angles, perspectives, answers to specific practical situations. We always come away with resolve, strategies and practical tools. And I love the ease of community feel that seems to grow ever richer all the time too!

Simone - thank you so much for all the information and for your amazing support. Today my daughter had a huge meltdown and for the first time ever I approached it feeling able to be truly calm. I used the 4,7,8 and I reflected back to her how hard she was finding it from a place of genuine concern rather than personal discomfort/ anguish. I feel like a different person! So - THANK YOU.

The workshop 'Connecting Positively with your intense, sensitive and hyper-reactive children and/or teenagers' in London brought me greater understanding of how different people experience life and how stress cycles and responses work. I have learned techniques and got practical help for specific problems.

As I often do after one of our sessions, I feel as though a weight has been lifted and I can relax into just being and enjoying my family - or even not enjoying them at moments(!) without any added judgements and fears acting as a prison warden threatening me to be on the alert for failings and risks. How wonderful life could be if I never had to go through this. It is the emotional equivalent of a cocaine habit. Anyway, I am one tiny step nearer perhaps and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for having the wisdom and perception to see what was going on for me when I couldn’t.
