She has a wealth of experience and has great diplomacy in sharing and applying her knowledge especially when it is sometimes difficult for one or both parents to address areas where there may be going wrong. I would most definitely recommend her to other parents and if you commit yourself to her programme and advice, you can reap the benefits!
I am a busy single mum who runs her own business and Sylvia has been helping me create effective morning and evening routines to help my 3 year old daughter deal with recent family changes. Sylvia has offered practical no-nonsense advice, delivered in a no shame, no blame way. This is so important when working mums already have enough guilt to deal with. I now feel that the time my daughter and I spend together is quality time and we are both happier and calmer as a result.
Sylvia delivered a pertinent, interesting and enjoyable presentation. She pitched it just right for our audience- her friendly, interactive style managed to keep everyone engaged and entertained. Importantly though, she also managed to challenge our paradigms. On a personal level, I certainly learnt a thing or two which I hope will make me a more rounded person. Additionally, we received really positive feedback from our patients about the class with an overwhelming majority asking for another installment!
As I was about to return to work, I was growing increasingly worried about how I would cope as Bonnie was still waking up at least once in the night, leaving me tired most days. We spoke to Sylvia about this and her practical advice, although quite tough to go through at first, had her sleeping through within 3 days and we've rarely had to get up in the night since. This made the transition for me going back to work so much easier. Bonnie had always been a good eater but suddenly she started to refuse the spoon. We sought help from Sylvia and the results were instantaneous. Now, whenever she gets fussy we just follow the steps Sylvia gave us and they always prove a success.
