    “Thank you Emily, it has made a world of difference to my daughter. We can really see the changes in her behaviour already”

    Greg, Geelong

    By working with Emily I was able to learn techniques to help support my two boys. I learnt to track his play and help him identify his emotions that we later applied at home. I highly recommend working with Emily.

    Jessica, Bannockburn

    "We have seen our son's behaviour change and he has been able to find ways to regulate his emotions at home. He is more confident at kinder to be part of the group and interact with peers."

    Jane, Geelong

    "Through the child-lead play sessions our girls were able to express their emotions and regulate themselves. We also noticed a change in their communication with us."

    Matt and April, Ocean Grove
