"Thank you for presenting the course to me. I enjoyed it and found it very useful as I noticed changes in my daughter's behaviour immediately after implementing some of the steps recommended by the Triple P video's/books. It was also useful to speak to other parents and experience their problems which further helped me to learn but also made me feel that I am not alone when it comes to raising kids and the issues that come with it. Many thanks again and take care".


"Hi thank you so much for the course I have learnt loads. Me and Emma are getting on really well at the min. She's so much calmer now she is at big school. She loves routine. Her anxiety is still really high but she is no longer hurting/cutting herself when she can't cope. Thank you again x"
