Client stories

I’d like to introduce you to some of my clients and how they were able to transform their lives by working with me:

Caroline Gosling

Mother of W, 8 and T, 6.

"We more often feel like a whole unit rather than an ‘adults vs kids’ battleground!"

“Oona’s wisdom and care for her clients - and their children - is immensely powerful. Working with her has transformed my approach to being a mum, with a tangible effect on our family life - we get on better, things happen more easily and we more often feel like a whole unit rather than an ‘adults vs kids’ battleground!

Most of all Oona has helped me find greater confidence in my own wisdom as a mum. She’s done this with a ‘resolute gentleness’ that guides, advises, never judges - but also never lets you off the hook when trying to skirt an issue or skim over things.

As I have changed the way I interact with them I have watched my boys blossom.”

"The behaviour changes I see in my sweet children"

I came to our sessions with Oona wishing for reflection points to focus on my parenting, to appreciate my children’s point of view with more understanding and to choose my responses more consciously. 

Brilliantly I now have a deeper level of parenting tools to use from our time, these are already really apparent from the behaviour changes I see in my sweet children, thank you Oona! Invaluable work!

“As a result, I feel quite different these days, much happier, and more importantly for me, my son is much happier and his behaviour is much better too!”

“When I found Oona, I was miserable, desperate - and anxious about my 5 year old’s future. I felt out of touch with him, like I was losing control.
With Oona’s non-judgemental guidance, I learnt how to set healthy boundaries while staying open and flexible and creating a loving, caring atmosphere at home. As a result, I feel quite different these days, much happier, and more importantly for me, my son is much happier and his behaviour is much better too!
For me, Oona’s brilliant personalised advice and friendly attitude have been priceless!”

Toronto, Canada, mother of D, 1 year.

"My son is happier; I am happier; my husband is happier."

"We are now on a different trajectory. I have so much more energy. My son is happier; I am happier; my husband is happier. You can’t put a price on the joy you can get from working with you. The money is nothing compared to the benefit. 
I would pay it many times over to be where I am today. I am... very, very grateful to you. And I hope that any parents who are struggling or stressed out find their way to you."

High Wycombe, mother of V, 2, and M, 9 months.

"I feel a lot more confident as a mother and I know what to do."

"Oh God, you’re going to love it! Oona’s wonderful and really makes you see things from the child’s point of view. It’s incredible - that knowledge of how a child thinks. She’ll open your eyes!  
Whatever you’ve read, it’s so different to have someone who knows and can tailor it to your particular circumstances. Things are so much better than they were before.  
I feel a lot more confident as a mother - and I know what to do. It’s been wonderful. And I’d highly recommend it."

Kathryn

Exeter, Devon, UK

I’m thrilled - and so grateful that I took that first step of booking a call.”

“I’ve achieved so much more than I was ever anticipating. You’ve helped me find words - when I was stuck and didn’t know what to say. It’s such a relief that things don’t escalate any more because I now know how to communicate things in a way my toddler understands and accepts. I’m thrilled - and so grateful that I took that first step of booking a call.”

Sally Mesner-Lyons

London

There’s something magical about you. I’m unlocking things from inside.”

Christiane Ganteaume

Kingston, London, mother of 6 and 3 year old twins.

"I’m happy to say their behaviour is much improved now - and I also feel lighter and better in myself."

"When I started working with Oona, I was feeling so depleted - managing all my children’s relationships had become very difficult.

I’m so happy I found her: I always felt so positive after our conversations and the many practical ideas are wonderfully effective in helping me dealing with the children.

I’m happy to say their behaviour is much improved now - and I also feel lighter and better in myself."

Christine Blessing

Dublin, mother of E, 5 and A, 3.

"I hope you know how much you have changed things for my family."

"I just wanted to say thank you for all the support and invaluable mentoring you are giving me. I feel very lucky to have found you online.

I think it’s important to say thank you to you.

I hope you know how much you have changed things for my family. 

As soon as I had my own children I was adamant I would not repeat the mistakes of my parents but soon realised that when it comes to some areas its not easy at that to find/use tools you simply don't have. 

Despite my best intensions I was somewhat lost. 

Parenting is never easy but my children are happy and safe.

You have helped me realise that!"

"The stress levels have dropped and our connection grows every day!"

"Once frustrated by frantic mornings trying to get everything done, now I have a deeper understanding of our children, as well as tools to offer the whole family a great start to the day. The stress levels have dropped and our connection grows every day!"

Harriet Hancock-sq

Harriet Hancock

Stroud, mother of Will, 6 years and Rosie, 4.

"Without Oona, I could have spent 20 years getting to this place of connection with them."

"Before I met Oona, I was in big knots about my children’s behaviour. Now I am so much more relaxed. Without Oona, I could have spent 20 years getting to this place of connection with them.
It’s been amazing. Life with the children is unrecognisable to how it was when Oona appeared."

"Now I really enjoy his company and it’s brought us so much closer together."

"Before I met Oona, I was really struggling with my child’s challenging behaviour. I’d read many books and tried many techniques, but none of it worked with my 3 year old.  

Oona's approach to parenting really worked for me in a peaceful way - that I agree with as well. Now I really enjoy his company and it’s brought us so much closer together."

"We’re now a much calmer family, with much less stress in the air!"

"Before taking Oona’s programme, we were beside ourselves about bedtimes, which took an hour and a half every evening. The other issue was that our daughter was screaming - a lot! There were days when I almost felt I couldn’t cope with her any more - and it was affecting the whole family. 
Now we have peace in the house by 7.30pm, the screaming is pretty much gone and our daughter is overall much happier! I’m so glad we reached out to Oona for help - we’re now a much calmer family, with much less stress in the air!"

London, mother of S, 5, and N, 2

"Don't think twice about signing up with Oona, it's time and money well spent!"  

"Right from the first session we got helpful advice and suggestions - which quickly improved things at home. I see things now from a very different perspective, and this has helped me find better ways to tackle 'challenging behaviour'. Oona gives you tools to draw on and she isn't afraid of asking challenging questions - which, again, I found so helpful.
Don't think twice about signing up with Oona, it's time and money well spent!”
