"Donna has been fantastic with my daughter, she has been patient and understanding. The sessions are reasonably priced and I only wish I could bring all the family once a week for a session each as I'm sure it would be beneficial. I am happy to recommend the service"
"X has managed to cope so much better with his frustrations now and if he becomes sad or frustrated he uses techniques taught by Donna to help him stay calm rather than having a meltdown. His behaviour at home and school has improved so much"
"I have seen a positive uplift in X's overall mood and behaviour, still have the odd meltdown but he is in a much better place now"
"Since coming to Play Therapy, X's self confidence has increased. She is slowly learning coping strategies to help her deal with stressful events/situations. We saw a huge improvement and her anger issues had greatly reduced"
"X always enjoyed her sessions with Donna. She has made great progress in school and out of school. She is calmer in herself since starting Play Therapy and does stop and think before acting/speaking out of turn"
"X has really enjoyed her Play Therapy sessions with Donna. She is a bit more confident in school, starting to play with more children and is starting to come out of her shell a bit more"
" X always enjoyed the session and very quickly formed an attachment to Donna. Donna has managed the ending of the sessions very well - to the point that X has moved from being upset/distressed at the thought of them ending to now seeing it as some form of graduation/celebration.
Donna has changed X's quality of life for the better and that of our entire family.
It has been a challenge for us, as parents to not really know exactly what happens each time but once we started to see results, we became more relaxed."
"X is much happier since coming to the sessions,I'm really pleased"
"X is far more aware of his emotions/behaviours and the impact they have on others as well as himself"
"thanks so much for all your support and advice Donna"
"The relationship that you have built up with X has been excellent, he has felt very comfortable working with you"
"Donna was an invaluable resource assisting us when X was having difficulties. Her insights and advice were beyond helpful. It was also very helpful knowing advice/guidance/insights were only a phone call away"
"X is not as withdrawn and sad"
"Such a lovely safe, nurturing enviroment. Thank you for everything you have done for us"
"Thank you, it is never something you want your child to need but since the first phone call with Donna I was reassured. Hopefully X won't need this service again but if she did I know she's in great hands"
"X has started to show less and less of the anxiety she used to have. She seems to be a lot more positive and I feel it is easier to calm her down as she is more willing to listen and see reason"
"Thank you so much Donna for everything over the past couple of months. You've helped X and ourselves understand each others emotions and what triggers him"
"I have noticed he will listen more and understand and also accept when we say no to things"
