Parent

Our daughter had 15 sessions with Mic during a difficult time in her life, she was experiencing anxiety following several losses 

in our family. 

Mic just seemed to ‘get' her and offered her the safe space she really needed. She looked forward to her sessions every week and we noticed her confidence growing. 

As a result, our daughter’s self compassion has increased and she is now able to articulate her emotions. 

We will be forever grateful for the support Mic has given us - thank you 

Assistant Head for Inclusion,
a London Primary School

Mic has had an extremely positive impact on children she has worked with over the several years she has worked with us. She is well-organised, passionate and diligent and communicates well with families and teachers. She is personable, proactive and very supportive of all teaching staff.

Parent

I know my son will miss working with her tremendously but he has been well equipped to move forward facing life’s challenges with a new found resilience and increased confidence. 

Parent

The sessions have been incredibly successful and the change in my son is huge. I cannot recommend Mic highly enough for how she has helped our family- not just within the sessions with my son but providing excellent detailed guidance and advice for us as a family going forward. I am now equipped with strategies I can use to support him myself.

Class Teacher 

It is impossible to put into words how much Michaela has helped both my students and I.

As a teacher, I have had moments when I have felt exhausted and overwhelmed. With patience, expertise and thorough professional guidance, Michaela has helped me build my own strategies and has given me the confidence to support my students. She has provided me with the right tools to deal with continuous challenging behaviours and be able to move forward from them.

Parent

Mic has been working with my son who has autism, ADHD and anxiety and after just one term of working with him, we’ve noticed a marked improvement in his self-regulation, ability to express his emotions and a significant reduction in his anxiety. Her exceptional skills, warmth and obvious passion for her job means she tunes into his mood perfectly at the start of each session to get the best out of him. Can’t recommend Mic highly enough.

...she has facilitated such positive changes and huge emotional and mental growth in him while keeping things fun, safe and open!

Class Teacher

I have had various children from my classes work with Mic over the past 4 years and I cannot recommend her enough. Mic is warm, insightful and sensitive to the needs of her clients and the children always look forward to their sessions with her. The positive changes for the children are tangible and long-lasting, whether it's increased confidence or self-esteem, improved communication skills or reduced anxiety. It is a pleasure working alongside Mic. She is always available when I need to speak about the pupils and willing to communicate and provide support. 

A very positive change –Children get their spark back

Class teacher

Mic has shown herself to be a kind, calm, friendly and extremely professional play therapist. She has had a huge impact on the learning behaviours and attitudes of all the children she has worked with. She has been great to work with and ALWAYS positive, coming up with numerous ideas to help not only the child involved, but also the class teacher and the parents.

She is always on hand to speak to and is extremely efficient!

From the beginning, she was fantastic to deal with- so professional and knowledgeable as well as being warm and supportive. I knew instantly my son would be in good hands. She is clearly excellent at what she does and that was clear from the first session when my son responded so well instantly.

Mic’s input doesn’t end at the sessions as she is extremely responsive to any queries or concerns.

Class teacher

​I have worked with Mic for numerous years and her professionalism is second to none. I have seen first hand the positive impact that this programme has had on her clients. It develops confidence, self esteem and empathy in individuals as well as developing positive relationships with parents. All children feel valued and feel safe to express themselves through play. I would highly recommend this service to anyone who is interested. The positive outcomes are amazing for anyone to see. 

Mic is extremely professional whilst also being very gentle, kind and patient which us parents can need as much as the kids!  She offers a safe and comfortable environment for kids to help express themselves and I'd have no doubt recommending her...
