'Just brilliant.
Two of my boys attended a back to school confidence workshop today, they’re heading back into a specialist independent & grammar school respectively after being home educated for a number of years.
They feel happier, more empowered and much more confident about the next chapter in their lives now.'

'It was great to know other parents and children are goimg through what you are and you can support each other and know you can contact Patsy for advice if not going well and or tell her of your success!'

'Amazing session today from Patsy at back to school anxiety workshop.... To hear all the kids there today chatting and interacting with each other was lovely... Very happy mummy here!'

'Patsy was very supportive and the coping thoughts and calming strategies were very useful and effective.'

No pie in the sky theory based course this.'
