"Your talk was the first place I have heard anyone talk about anxiety in SPD in a clear and practical way - one thing I found particularly eye opening was that you vocalised the fear of being unsafe. I previously have not had a way of expressing this before and it tends to be misinterpreted as general anxiety and therefore totally misunderstood. Thank you also for not going on about CBT or positive parenting!"
Anxiety and Sensory Processing workshop attendee January, 2019

“There seems to be a lack of information around ADHD, and still stigma and misconceptions exist. No wonder young people with ADHD are exceptionally vulnerable. This event has been an eye opener, and it’s made me see the true potential of young people when supported fairly"
