“It was brilliant. I loved everything.” Rowan (age 9)
“Simone de Hoogh has been such a worthwhile help.
She assisted a teenager who was grieving for his mother and was unable to use his considerable intelligence to move forward in his chosen course at College. He had come to a standstill, was angry at himself and others, and was extremely depressed and frightened because he did not understand what was happening to him. He was convinced he was worthless and his whole future seemed to be crumbling before him. In fact he was displaying suicidal tendencies and was self harming. In an effort to help him he was sent to a specialist who stated he had ‘undiagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome. This was no help whatsoever.
Simone has helped him turn himself around; to understand what is happening to him; to find the courage to change and face up to things and most importantly to view the future with confidence.
We cannot praise Simone enough. Our grandson came to live with us after the death of our daughter and we felt powerless to help him.
Thank you Simone.”
