Joanna, mum of Isabella 5 years old
"Anna has been recommended to me by my friends, as an experienced therapist with great results. She has proved this through work with my daughter as well. We met her for the first time in February, when my 5 year old daughter struggled with separation anxiety (that escalated in reception). My daughter trusted her from the first meeting. After a few minutes she stayed in a room with Anna on her own; she wouldn’t do that with any other newly met individual. Anna has worked with Isabella for 3 months, meeting her weekly. Isabella is a different, more emotionally mature child now. She has overcome her anxiety and no longer struggles with starting school every morning. Now she waves ‘goodbye’ to us with a smile (previously she would cry every day). Such a change for us as a family. Anna has also supported me during the period she worked with Isabella (and beyond), giving me tips on how I should be addressing situations at home so that my child is supported consistently."
