Blake said he found ‘ being able to relax’ in the sessions very useful and said he felt ‘happy because we did fun things’. Usha was very knowledgeable and gave us insightful information on why Blake was acting in certain ways. It felt like we were working as a team to support Blake. With Usha’s help and the techniques she gave us to try at home we have had a real turn around.

Asking for help is not a weakness! We all encounter difficult times at some point in our lives due to societal norms, our culture, upbringing, and our own expectations.

Can you relate? A happy and connected family is possible and I can help you to bridge the gap from frustration to fun.
