Testimonials

“Your support has certainly helped me deal with a challenging parenting moment & given me strength, which in turn gave my daughter strength to face her fears head on.  I love that you are so supportive & caring of your readers. In fact, it feels like you're more of a friend rather than someone I "follow" on social media. I love that.”

Purdie, mum of 3.

“I loved your podcast on Couch Confidentials because it was so interesting, current and held really valuable information. You have such a calming voice and you are honestly a wealth of knowledge. I’m sure many people will follow you and your businesses will thrive because of it.”

Chantalle, mum of two

“I listened to your podcast whilst out walking this morning and related on so many levels having two daughters myself. Thank you for imparting your wealth of knowledge. I especially loved your input re extra curricular activities and think that’s spot on. I’ve scribbled a page of notes to refer back to. Really looking forward to your own podcast next year.”

Brooke, mum of two.
