Nicki has worked with children and parents at our school for over 3 years now. In that time they have supported parents with behaviour management, school attendance, financial and housing issues and general parenting advice as well as working with targeted children here.
Nicki has provided play therapy and one-to-one sessions with many children in their work here. Staff and parents notice an amazing difference as a result of Nicki’s work and the improvements in attendance, punctuality and behaviour are fantastic. We could not manage without Nicki now and cannot recommend them highly enough.
