Sceptical at first…

We were sceptical at first about paying a lot of money to a parenting expert with no guarantees we would get results and also the shame you feel as a parent is having to ask for help. But why not? We ask for help in every other area of life, and raising our children well is surely the biggest priority for most of us. We aren’t given a handbook and most of the books you do read don’t work! Katherine has honestly changed our lives.

Before she came I had one child who had regular angry tantrums and spoke rudely, he was also on Movicol for stool withholding which was really affecting day to day life. Another who made everything an issue, never played independently, caused problems to get attention and had daily meltdowns after school. This even led us to believe she would need to be assessed for ADHD or autism.

Our house was loud, chaotic and stressful. From the very first phone call to Katherine she understood and convinced me that there would be nothing wrong with my children and that after her visit my son would no longer need Movicol. I didn’t believe she could achieve this, but she did! I also no longer believe my daughter needs a behavioural assessment, her behaviour has transformed. I was unknowingly feeding their negative behaviours, giving them far too much control, allowing them to treat me like a slave and underestimating how independent they could be. Katherine has given us back the control as parents and the tools to make sure that our home is the calm, happy environment that we always wanted it to be.

Our children are happier, well mannered, more relaxed and more focused on enjoying themselves instead of worrying about what we are doing. It takes someone from outside sometimes to look in and make a few changes in your behaviours to really change your life for the better. Putting it into practice was tough at first, but 100% worth the time and effort it has taken. Thank you Katherine, your visit was worth every single penny, and it was a pleasure to have you in our home.
