family support (Adults and children)
"Your family life is precious, look after it." - Brooke Longmore
Family life today can be hectic, it can be exhausting, there is so many people to please and so many people to keep happy! Families today come in many shapes and sizes, they live in different locations and are made up by many different personalities coming together. Family conflict is very common in today's world.
Family conflict often starts with differences of opinions, parenting styles or thought processes, if this is not managed in the beginning it can grow into bigger problems. Children often find it hard to know where they fit into families.

Having Brooke work with Ella over the course of a few months has brought about some noticeable changes. Ella is highly sensitive and very self-critical, and as her mother I have struggled to find a way to help her navigate what are sometimes quite overwhelming thoughts and feelings.
Brooke managed to tap into Ella’s creativity from the first session, identifying that Ella responds well to having tasks to complete. Together they set goals to achieve and checked at each session how Ella felt she was managing. Some of the goals to me seemed almost unachievable knowing how much both Ella and myself had tried to tackle them previously, but there were marked improvements in both her bedtime routine (previously non-existent), and her self-confidence, from the first session.
We had our last session recently and I can definitely see that Ella’s thought process has shifted. Where before she would have had highly emotional responses to certain situations, she is able to rationalise and self-reflect much quicker, and see that perhaps the thing she is worrying about isn’t quite as bad as she first thought.
Her bedtime routine, although still not perfect, has improved to the point that she will actually go into her own bed without needing the reassurance of me lying beside her until she falls asleep, which is a massive achievement in itself.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Brooke. She has a very professional but extremely approachable manner which Ella responded well to, and was always happy to give advice and tailor each session to what both Ella and myself needed at that time.
