"My daughter (15) had an assessment with Monica which went very well. She was very nervous and apprehensive before we got there. When we arrived Monica had a chat with us both and made her feel really relaxed. At the end of the assessment we got initial feedback from Monica which was very reassuring. A detailed and informative report was then send on to us. I would highly recommend Monica as she creates a warm and understanding environment for all concerned."
