Hannah will be accepting new referrals from August 25th.
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.
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.
Child, age 15
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.
Thank you Hannah. I was really impressed with how thorough the assessment was. It’s a very detailed report, which will now help us and school support my child. Your report reflects accurately my child’s strengths and development areas. The assessment did not feel rushed and there was plenty of opportunities for breaks. I cannot recommend Hannah enough. Hannah was absolutely brilliant.
My child’s comment: “Hannah is really nice.” He liked the dinosaur stickers and he loved the crab (in the fish tank).
Parent and son
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you as my child’s case went to Panel and we were successful first time round, and also got the school we want for them. Your report made this case for us and stopped a lot of stress for me further down the line, and brought up my child’s struggles so we can get the help we need. MASSIVE thanks.
The information you gathered from your assessments has been invaluable to us in finding a positive way forward for our child’s education and wellbeing. It wasn’t always easy to find an unbiased approach when we were communicating with the school, but we feel you bridged that gap with the professional, objective and child centred advice that you gave. Our only regret is that we didn’t seek your input sooner. Our child said she thought you were really nice, made the assessment day fun and she liked your fish. Many thanks again for all your help.
Parents and daughter
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. Our son is now doing his GCSEs and preparing for college, and then hopefully a uni course.
We just wanted to let you know our child’s 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 our 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.
Can I just say on a personal note a huge thanks for your time and approach. It has made such a difference to our family and our child, as we all knew he wasn’t just a naughty boy but couldn’t prove it. Since your assessment our son has been able to recognise that he is not stupid and naughty, which is what he felt previously and been told at school. All I can say is thank you, which seems to not accurately reflect the depth of gratitude we all feel to you. You are making a real difference to children and families which is wonderful.
I cannot tell you how much your assessment and report means to us. Our 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 just wanted to drop you a very quick note to let you know that with the backing of yet another excellent report from you I have secured my child a place at *** School.
I can’t believe we’ve won our battle and it’s down to your excellent work, it’s honestly going to be life changing for him to be in a school that’s right for him.
I always recommend you to anyone looking for help, both reports you have done for us have won appeals. It’s truly amazing we have been blessed with the opportunity to use your professional skills.
Hopefully I won’t need to come to you in another panic in the future but just to assess how far he is coming along with the right education.
It’s so sad our kids have to go through this and the stress it puts on daily family life, but I know without your report it would have been a lot worse.
My child absolutely loves you. He says you’re so sweet, which makes the assessments a more relaxed session with virtually no anxiety when being pushed to his limits.
Thank you Hannah, from our whole family.

The First Aid to Home Learning
This should really be shared with all parents and be an introduction to any school learning done at home, at any time (the beginning of the start of school life, change of school or for general homework, not just the long periods of lockdown home learning). The First Aid to home learning for parents and pupils. Excellent support and information. Highly recommend.

This really is in bitesize chunks, with visuals, text, and video to help you in whichever way you prefer to learn. There are lots of methods for you to adapt for the child you are helping, depending on their age, need, and interests. It’s also really hard to find help with spellings, so it’s great that it’s on here with reading. Highly recommend this course if you want to help your child at home, and you can download the slides at the end to refer back to.

Very Useful Course
I really enjoyed the course and found it very useful. The approach was easy to follow and understand. The videos were really helpful to watch how you do it. I would definitely recommend this to friends. Thank you.

Excellent, Helpful Information
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!!!
K Reynard, parent
This is fantastic and so helpful. Simple, easy to understand instructions and ideas. It was interesting and the videos are brilliant!! They show exactly what you mean and how to teach them to your child. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Hannah Morris was a speaker on the recent Early Years Summit, discussing children’s emotional needs and how to best support children. I was hugely impressed with her breadth of knowledge, especially how emotional development underpins other areas of child development. She was articulate and passionate when discussing her work with the children as well as being very practical. Her ways of identifying the needs of the children were exceptionally useful. Hannah is an interesting and evidently intelligent speaker – I thoroughly enjoyed working with her.

As a journalist, I am often in need of credible sources to quote in my articles, and I was so pleased to find Hannah when writing about mental health for young people. Hannah was such a great source of information, she was quick to reply and really thorough, giving me plenty of evidence to illustrate my piece and lots of gems to choose from when it came to picking quotes for the article. I could also really tell that Hannah cared about her subject and wanted to help my teen audience as much as possible in looking after their mental health. It was a pleasure to work with Hannah and she’s a reliable source for any press in need of an expert.
