Sarah has been personally recommended and referred by Doctors, Educational Psychologists, Family Court Workers, Family Therapists, Counselors, Head Teachers, Nursery Owners and many other professionals. Parents and Children also give her glowing testimonials. A sample of some of these testimonials are given below.
I was at the stage where I had tried everything with my daughter but she remained sullen & angry. It was affecting the whole family. I wondered if she had a behavioral problem and talked to my Doctor. My Doctor recommended Sarah at Positive Families. We learned new ways to handle our daughter. It was amazing how she responded. Sarah's approach helped us communicate more effectively. From helping her talk about her feelings to encouraging her co-operation, the workshops gave me a new set of skills and a MUCH HAPPIER child. Everyone comments on the difference it has made". (Helen, Mother of 2 daughters, aged 9 & 11).
All the feedback I got (from Foster Parents / Foster Staff) was overwhelmingly positive. Everyone I talked to felt they benefited from and took something away from the workshop. People liked the role plays, and trying to see things from a child’s perspective was helpful. The participation/conversation was also cited as something they enjoyed- it wasn’t a lecture! Thank you so much for your time and work that you put into bringing this workshop to us, you are most appreciated! Tashina, CPA Case Manager/Training Coordinator, Savio House
The parenting course was well presented, relevant and helpful. Parents reported feeling more able to support their children's personal, social and emotional development. Parents expressed that their relationships with their children were enhanced. I commend Sarah to anyone. (Ron Morton, Headmaster, British Embassy School, Greece).
What a difference 10 hours can make to a family. This work has helped our family tremendously. It has also brought huge benefits to my teaching role at school. (Ruth, Mother & Teacher).
Better Communication. Less Friction. Less Shouting & Fighting at home. Confidence Building. We are Happier. Thank You Sarah. (Maher, Father).
On top of her strong knowledge and experience in the field of psychology and support to others, Sarah makes the difference with a real talent for human interactions and conflict resolution. I have never seen anyone so positive and compassionate, with a genuine interest and empathy in others, true tolerance to diversity, and a deep understanding of human nature and psychology. Sarah is fun, loving and affectionate with children, always full of genuine positive and bright energy. I highly recommend Sarah. (Benedicte Brouder, Middle School Director).
"An invaluable service - supporting families and couples develop harmony at home and healthy family communication and relationships". Jan Slater, Family Therapist
We met Sarah in 2014 when she became our daughter’s English teacher. At that time, our daughter, was the only dyslexic student in a mainstream classroom. Sarah encouraged and supported her academically, and also talked with her about her occasional emotional and social frustrations about learning differently than her peers. Our daughter always walked away feeling understood, cared for and valued. She also learned a great deal in English class, despite the fact that she initially did not like or understand grammar. Our daughter said, in effect, that Sarah’s enthusiastic and engaging teaching style made it fun, so she paid attention and finally “got it”. To this day, she considers Sarah her all-time favorite teacher, and English her strongest subject. (Abby, Mother)
Armed with understanding your own true colors and of others you learn how to cut to the chase with effective communication. Incredible. I wish I had learned this in Kindergarten. I would have saved myself a ton of wasted time and misunderstandings! It gives an amazing and eye-popping revelation for a succinct understanding as to how you think and interpret your world and others. Thank you Sarah for this life-changing gift! Just because Real Colors system is such fun does not mean it is shallow. Au contraire! My previous experience with behavioral pattern testing is long sets of multiple choice questions. This examination-type approach leads to a more intellectual response, where the mind instinctively answers in a way that might seem more socially acceptable. Instead, the True Color method takes us on a lightning quick journey into the depths of the psyche of the authentic self before we realize what is happening. To a place where there is no thought, but only feeling: “this rings true” / “this is me” versus “this feels wrong”. You just intuitively know the answers and as a result reveal the truth of your personality type without over analyzing or second guessing. Nigel Staton
