Children and families that have worked with Achieve 360


We wanted to pass on our thanks to therapist Collette for all the support she’s provided to B at High School. She has been working with B since Primary Schoo and her support & strategies have helped him to come to terms with who he is and have given him the strength to be the amazing individual he has become.

Right from the start they had a bond and nothing was too much trouble for Collette. Quite often she would ring in an evening in her own time to keep me updated with how the discussions have gone on. Even keeping in touch during lockdown.

B left High School last week a more confident and secure individual than when he started. I know a lot of this is down to the support & strategies he had from Collette. We will never forget how much she helped him and us all as a family.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to Collette, and I wanted to take this opportunity to provide feedback on the wonderful person that she is.

Can highly recommend Nicki. Nicki came round to our house to give us some advice regarding some behaviour and sleep issues which we were having with our little boy who suffers with autism. Right from the beginning she was non judge- mental and put us right at ease offering some practical advice and tips to try. We now have a plan moving forwards. Nicki is very friendly and prices are extremely reasonable.

Had my first visit from Nicki this afternoon I was feeling lost and unsure where to turn to for help with my son and anywhere I did find wanted to charge a fortune and being a single mum was impossible to afford. After speaking to Nicki I now feel like I have some really good strategies I can use and I understand what is happening a lot more so I feel like I can be there to support my son. Nicki is so friendly and easy to talk to my son clicked with her straight away and I’m sure one on one he will open up even more. She is also very responsible price wise and I feel like it’s 100% value for money. Looking forward to my son working more with her and seeing how she can help him change his behaviour. Thanks you and I would recommend to anyone.

Just had a visit from Nikki. Feeling really positive with some good technics to put into place. Really friendly, helpful and given me the confidence to apply new technics at home.

I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for Sarah. Sarah is a different girl all together. She is back to how she was 2 years ago.As you know she was very apprehensive at first about coming to see you, especially after the way things had gone at school. Sarah couldn’t believe how relaxed and easy it was to come and talk to you, whether on the phone or in person, and i know that if sarah needs you in the future she would get in touch with you and you would help her.I would highly recommend you to anyone i thought who were having similar problems.

Nicki has worked within my school for over two years delivering pupil counselling and family support work and play therapy.

During her work here, Nicki has managed to persuade even the most reluctant parents and pupils to engage with school, and developed good relationships with pupils, families, staff and other agencies.

Nicki has made a positive difference to the outcomes of all the pupils with whom she has worked in terms of attitude, attendance and learning behaviours, which have all impacted on individual pupil results. More importantly, the work which they have carried out has supported the emotional well-being and confidence of the individual pupils.

We are a large urban school, in an area of high deprivation and have many families who are involved with Children’s Services and nicki is able to work with families in crisis without prejudice or judgement. Nicki has also been involved in the whole referral process including the completion of the Common Assessment Framework and attendance at Core Assessment meetings, Conferences and Multi-Agency Review Meetings. At all of these meetings Nicki have been thoroughly professional - focussing on the needs of the child.

Nicky and her team have supported my school extremely well, and I thoroughly recommend their services. If financially possible, I would employ them full time!

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.
