Testimonials from clients

Dora connected with my daughter from the first meeting, who reported back to me how she felt listened to and supported. My daughter felt safe with Dora to share her story, her fears, hopes and so much more which lead to a very positive outcome regarding the impact of Dora’s work with my child. I would sincerely recommend Dora’s service as she really made a difference to our life within a relatively short space of time. I can’t thank her enough.

November 2020

The sessions with Dora were very helpful for my daughter. She put us at ease and provided a safe and comfortable environment for her to express herself. She provided helpful strategies and my daughter is more positive and able to problem solve when things are tricky. 

January 2021

My daughter says ‘it was helpful to get things off my chest, those things don’t feel like a problem anymore’. 

January 2021


“We found Dora to be a warm an insightful clinician. Among other things, she offered lots of practical advice on how to help our 5 year old overcome her fears. Our daughter is a bright, highly sensitive child who had to start school during a disruptive pandemic, with no previous experience of attending nursery, so the transition proved very difficult. Dora’s advice was invaluable and we made great progress in a very short space of time.”
