when feedback makes me cry!

I work with a lot of parents and I am so fortunate to have regular clients and I am recommended to a lot of other parents. I’m not very good at shouting about what I do – this has taken me an hour to write because I don’t want to come across as I smug show-off – but I received this feedback today and I wanted to share it because it sums up what I do and it is why I do what I do.

I don’t do anything special – I mainly make a hot brew, dish out some cake and attempt to provide some reassurance when it is needed. What I wanted to create was some sessions that make a bit of a difference, where parents can feel safe and supported to ask questions, offload and be listened to.

It’s great to have validation that what I love doing is worth doing.

Huge thanks to Sophie for her words and to all you lovely parents who keep coming back and who keep telling other parents about me – means a lot.
