"... I needed you Linda and by the end of that session I was so happy you were coming back to help me in a few days... While this is my journey and all about me, I have been super thankful to be able to have taught my 8 year old daughter and 7 year old son a ‘little peoples’ version of using their breathe to bring them strength and composure as well – love it or hate it, when they are unleashing their inner dragon on me and I ask them to take a couple of small breaths, seeing their shoulders drop, and their little minds calm makes me feel like dancing a little jig!"

As a new mum in a foreign country without any family support I and my husband both felt a bit lost… Linda was always very helpful and went the extra mile… She was genuine and I felt in her company like she was family and could trust her a lot.
It is in Linda’s nature to genuinely care “
