TESTIMONIALS:
I walked away from this presentation with lots of ideas to help our daughter as well as our family. I enjoyed the way she presented her real life experiences, videos, literature and PowerPoint presentation. It was definitely a worthwhile workshop that I feel every parent, caregiver or educator would benefit from
- Shauna Lawrie

I work in this field myself and I go to a lot of workshops/seminars on childhood mental health. This was informative, straight forward, and deeply touching. I am sure I was not alone in this as the energy in the room was palpable. Tammy's no-nonsense style drove some important points home and left me with a lasting impression. I absolutely loved that her whole presentation was geared to what we, the adults in the child's life, can do - not what the child needs to do/fix/improve on. I feel motivated and enlightened to personally take on parenting in a even more conscious and meaningful way. Thank you for that.

We really had our eyes opened to a lot of different things . . . we felt like Tammy was speaking directly to us. Even my husband was fully engaged!
-Danial Kerr


We felt the seminar was full of useful information. We immediately set to work the child attachment strategies that very same day and noticed changes with our children.
- Cammie Duong-Woo


We I feel I have a better understanding of my own children and what they need from me . . I would recommend this training to all parents and caregivers
-Kyla Dugatie

Thank you so much. You gave us so much to think about in how we interact with our son. I have honestly noticed a difference in his behaviour, his interactions with his siblings, and the way we are approaching his anxiety
