-Brian Colbert (Mind Coach, Co-founder of Irish Institute of NLP, Licensed Master Trainer of NLP).

'For me it was hard to see my little ones upset whenever I had to go to work or leave them for a while. Departures were prolonged and I was often lured back by the sobbing and upset . It was very helpful to work with Elfreda and learn that there were some things we could do to help reduce separation anxiety. I would reassure the children that I would be back and give hugs and kisses (we have our own funny parting gestures a  silly song and high 5s. I would tell them that "sometimes Mamma has to go to work and I can't take you, at work I do lots of things  and but you can do things too " get them into problem solving mode "what could you do  when I am working?" they came up with ideas  like feed the dog, make sure he has a fresh drink , build some Lego etc, helping them feel that they were in control of those tasks often lessened the anxiety, it's hard to be upset and problem solving at the same time . Settling  into a school routine often my daughter will protest and  refuse  to go .Again  looking at what she might miss out on if she didn't go like favourite subjects , PE and dancing etc helped to create the desire and she would quickly decide that getting ready and going to school to enjoy all the things there was the better choice . I highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyed coaching sessions with Elfreda . 
Elfreda has helped me to understand that the children can sense your confidence as you walk out the door, smiling and giving a cheerful wave  and a quick "bye" has helped the children sense my confidence they know that I feel ok about leaving them with  the caregiver and they can feel ok too.'
