Michelle helped my daughter through a difficult time by being an adult outside of the family whom my daughter could trust, have fun with, learn from and be encouraged by. Having had a few sessions with Michelle myself, I can say I found it a relief to be so well listened to, to feel understood and affirmed when things seemed heavily stacked against me. I imagine this is one reason why my daughter always wanted to see Michelle when she was feeling socially isolated and anxious. Seeing Michelle alone also gave my daughter the opportunity to reflect on her behaviour and to role play behaviour that could help her with her social difficulties. This was empowering. We are very grateful to Michelle for her help.
