Review

“Sarah is like magic! My daughter and I can’t thank Sarah enough for the help she’s given us over the last few weeks. She’s given My daughter tools that will last a lifetime to help her manager her tics and we saw a dramatic improvement in just 2 sessions. Sarah is friendly, understanding and very skilled. Sarah also helped me as a parent to understand what my daughter was going through and helped me to be more empathetic and in turn improved our relationship. If you are in 2 minds to book, don’t be! You won’t regret it.”
