Our son, Logan, is eight years old and experienced some family trauma in April 2020. Between the trauma and lockdown it was extremely difficult for him to process his emotions. Logan became angry and extremely emotional with very low self-esteem. His muddled mind made it difficult to cope with day-to-day life and we were at a loose end with what to do to help him.
We had got to know Tana and her work and asked Logan if he would like to speak with her in October half term while awaiting a CAMHS referral. After just one session, Logan’s frame of mind had completely changed. He came out of the session absolutely bursting with confidence, happiness and ideas on how to help himself going forward. Logan came home and taught his little brother some of the things he had learned, such as telling themselves they are awesome and all about their inner monkeys.
Since the one-off session Logan has written his new motto on his bedroom mirror and reminds himself daily that he is awesome and has the confidence to get through day-to-day life with little to no problems. He has managed to express his emotions to us and every now and then will remind us that we too are awesome and can do anything.
Tana has kindly given us advice to help Logan with possible retained primitive reflexes, which we are currently looking into for him. We would highly recommend Tana and all she has to offer. We have seen first-hand the power of her words, knowledge and kindness when it comes to helping a struggling mind.
I have had lots of experience of working with Tana and she has helped me get through some tough times. Tana was always there for me and she was a great listener whenever I needed her help or just someone to talk to in confidence. She always made me feel at ease, and I knew and felt that what she advised was from the heart and that she genuinely wanted me to be the best I could be. Tana has also helped guide me into the right direction of moving on to the next stage of my life, and she was able to do this by always being interested in my life and getting to know me and my personality. I will be forever grateful for all the help and guidance she has given me.

Tana has a brilliant and unique talent at connecting with teenagers which seems to come as second nature to her. She creates an atmosphere of ease and unconditional support. Her talent of supporting youth derives from her years of experience and undoubtedly she has encountered almost every issue we as teens may experience. Aside from these capabilities at understanding people on a very human level, she is also able to respond to a situation pragmatically. Her solution-oriented outlook and view allows teenagers to feel confident in investing trust and responsibility to her.

Tana is able to immediately put you at your ease and understand how to calmly and effectively unveil the issues that lie beneath the surface, which have been causing upset and concern. Through wonderful tools, games and role play we were able to fully express ourselves. It was an emotional journey but definitely made so much easier with the guidance, reassurance and support of and support of Tana. She has such compassion and truly puts her heart into finding a solution.
