What Clients Say
Feedback from families, schools and other organisations.
“I cannot tell you how much your assessment and report means to us. My child is so much happier and we are as a family much happier. He now wants to go to school and has said that he can see how you and we have improved school for him and how he is now making friends. Dropping him off at school I have noticed the difference in the way the children welcome him to play. I hope this positiveness continues! We are finding new ways to challenge him and explore things with him as well as learning more about his needs. We know this is just the start of the journey and we may well be calling on you for help and support in the future, but so far so good.
“I was a little nervous of meeting Hannah and going through the tests but I needn't have worried at all. Hannah was really friendly and made me feel very comfortable in her home. There were a lot of tests and I did have to concentrate hard, but Hannah gave me as many breaks as needed which was good. I really liked the fact that Hannah spent time chatting to me about myself and wanted to know lots about me as an individual. I was very happy to do this. I really felt that Hannah covered all areas that had been a concern to me and I had every confidence that she would get to the bottom of my problems. I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I will now get the help I need.

“Thank you Hannah for the extremely informative and well presented sessions you organised for our member teachers. All involved found the sessions helpful and supportive, enabling teachers to build a deeper understanding of wellbeing and explore the current issues children may be experiencing during these difficult times. Your encouraging approach allowed teachers a comfortable forum to ask questions and provided an optimum learning environment for participants to build their knowledge on the subjects discussed. We look forward to working with you more in the future and greatly appreciate the opportunity to share your invaluable expertise.

“Hannah spent several hours assessing my child at home. She was kind and insightful, understood when it was time for the little 7yr old's brain to have a short break, but also pushed when she felt there was room to keep going. A few weeks later, Hannah delivered the most in-depth report I had seen until then - some of my friends were rather shocked to find that they had paid similar fees and more for a lot less. The report helped everyone to better understand my daughter's way of thinking, processing and learning. With her now in Year 5, I have just gotten back in touch with Hannah to get an updated EdPsych report for the secondary school process, and again, she was prompt to reply and kindly answered the flood of questions I had. Long story short: I can and will wholeheartedly recommend Hannah as Educational Psychologist. If you have the need of an assessment, don't hesitate, take the plunge and get in touch with her.

“Some years ago you visited us to assess our son. Having your assessment completely changed our approach to our child and his education and I would like to say thank you again. He is now doing his GCSEs and preparing for college, and then hopefully a uni course.
“We were very impressed with Hannah’s work. She added significant value in a timely and very professional manner, and we will definitely use her for any relevant future work.

“We just wanted to let you know that my child had a really positive year at school and we really believe the report you did for him has massively contributed to that. We saw a paediatrician and she was very impressed with the quality of the report, and she felt it really helped her get a picture of child's needs. The school SENCo has also said that this is the most thorough report she’s seen in a long time. Thanks again.
“I highly recommend this Bitesize course to other parents of kids with SEN, struggling with the challenges of engaging their child with learning. Friendly, useful information with practical examples of how to implement learning. Right length of time and you can dip in and out of it if you need to. I watched it twice and will watch the others!!!

“We thought you might like to know that the assessment of the previous child you worked with has been very helpful in identifying his needs and he is making very good progress now as a result. This success has influenced our decision to ask you to assess again.
