It was absolutely the best help for my son and I.  It was exactly what we have needed each and every week.  Michael helped us help each other.  Michael was patient and was able to get to the bottom of issues.  He is able to reach my son on his level and get him to respond with more than one word syllables. Michael was great for us. (Sharon, Mum to 13yr old son)

Coming to Michael changed my daughter, my grandson and my life completely.  Our lives are so different now.  Thank you so much for all you have done (Elizabeth, Grandmother and Kinship Carer to 11yr old grandson).

I valued being able to talk to someone who has experience, and who was down to earth and non-judgemental. I found Michael to be great and easy to talk to. My son has learnt to control his anger and has settled at school this year (Paul, Father to 8yr old son)
