What others have been saying about the Discovery Session:
"Elisa is an empathetic, insightful, and highly attuned person whom we had the pleasure to consult with by telephone about our 16 year old son. My husband and I found it instantly easy to talk to her openly and candidly about a complicated and sensitive situation.
My son began school refusing aged 10 at which time we had a one-off consultation with a CAMHS advisor which was unhelpful and inappropriate. We continued to actively seek help over the next year or so and consulted many (many) different private therapists, counsellors, clinical child psychotherapists, an educational psychologist, and last resort a child psychiatrist. Each of these negative, deflating, and depressing experiences put us off seeking any form of therapy or support for life. I can’t begin to think how many thousands of hours and pounds we have spent investing in utterly useless and disparaging conversations and more anxiety than we started with.
Elisa changed that opinion in an instant.
She warmly and objectively validated our concerns and rationale without the usual element of ‘parents-have-no-clue’ contempt we’d grown accustomed to in the past. An absolute breath of fresh air.
Elisa honestly ticks all of the boxes which is a significantly tall order when you consider the string of negative ‘therapy’ experiences we have behind us.
Elisa is genuinely a truly lovely person. You will only have to explain yourself once as she understands concepts and complicated detail instantly. Recounting long and involved historical events is utterly exhausting for parents (and part for the course) so having a therapist that ‘get’s it’ straightway is part of the battle and a crucial quality." ~ Emma
