"When my son read 'Harry Potter' after only five days, not having been able to read much simpler books for 15 years, I was in tears!" (mum)
Confidence is Everything!
There is nothing more empowering to see the changes in a short time, when the student becomes present and their confidence and abilities soar. (Barbara)
From a letter that moved me to tears:
"Barbara you are an amazing woman that has been the angel to so many kids and adults just like me. You showed me who I truly am and will always be and how to accept that. There aren’t enough words to describe you. I am truly and utterly thankful that I was able to meet someone like you in my life. You have been a great large part of who I am and who I will grow to be. Growing up with the knowledge you have given me has dramatically inspired me to be true to myself and accept who I am and accept others. Barbara, I will never forget what you have done to me and I will never forget you." (Josie, 14 years old)
"I know that may be a little long, I had trouble shortening that. You may use the shorter thing you originally wanted if you want. But I think it sells you short. I think the stuff you do is great, but there is a lot more, probably even more important, that I think you gave us. And that was the healing / getting us ready to try again. I don’t know if you did that intentionally or if it was just a combination of the location, the beautiful accommodation, your personality, or your technique, but without that, we wouldn’t have made the progress we have. Thank you!"
